This submission references Shari’a, international human rights law, and the Provisional Federal Constitution of Somalia (PFC) to condemn human rights violations in Somalia. Although the Somali Government has implemented measures to foster the protection of human rights, Somalia maintains its highly critical human rights record, which requires greater national and international attention.  This report examines violations in the following key human rights areas between May 2011 and June 2015: freedom of expression, freedom of religion, women’s rights and gender equality, and Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) rights.
