Speedy trial in Somaliland

A military court in Somaliland has handed down a death sentence in a case in which a policeman killed a senior police officer. As we read this article, the accused was sentenced even before the victim was buried. The case led to demonstrations by relatives of the victim who were demanding blood, and there were a number of arrests. The decision is subject to appellate review.
