Mogadishu (Halgan Online) – The Attorney General’s Office in Somalia has submitted charges to the Banadir Regional Court against the AUMOTAIVTE MANAGEMENT SERVICE Company and its Somalia Office Manager.
In a statement released on Monday, the Attorney General’s Office accused the foreign company of money laundering, tax evasion, and violating the Companies Act of the country. The office has requested the Court to schedule a hearing for the case to proceed to trial.
The Attorney General’s Office stated that the decision to press charges was made after receiving a criminal report from citizens related to the company. It also warned all foreign companies operating in Somalia to comply with the country’s regulations.
Just last week, the Attorney General’s Office charged 36 foreign individuals at the Banadir Regional Court for illegal fishing in Somali waters. The Somali navy detained the accused fishermen last month while possessing over 30 tons of fish acquired without authorization from Somali waters
