Iraqi man charged with murder of Somali woman1 min read
An Iraqi man accused of killing Dahabo Omar, a Somali national, will be arraigned in the Malaysian Supreme Court on May 9, 2022, a relative has confirmed, according to a relative of the slain woman.
Acting Somali Ambassador to Malaysia Amal Mohamed Said (Leader) told media that a relative of the deceased attended the court hearing.
“The court has concluded the trial of the accused and will be referred to the Supreme Court of Malaysia on May 9, 2022. The case is being represented by one of Dahabo Omar’s relatives,” said Amal Mohamed.
Acting Somali ambassador to Malaysia has previously said that Dahabo will not be buried until the killer is brought to justice but was buried in a cemetery in Kuala Lambur today.
Malaysian police have arrested the man accused of killing Dahabo Omar, and is currently awaiting trial in the country’s Supreme Court.
Dahabo Omar was killed not far from a former restaurant she had worked in by an Iraqi man who had repeatedly tried to have a relationship with her.
Mohamud Abdullahi Bille, a Malaysian student who spoke to media, said the girl had been reluctant to have a relationship with him.
Dahabo, who was in her twenties and one of the few who worked in the restaurant, eventually fell into the hands of the man she rejected.
