Djibouti. According to Countryaah, Moumin Bahdon Farah, former Minister of the Interior, Foreign and Justice, was arrested along with two government-critical journalists on suspicion of providing support to rebels, French media reported in early May. The three were suspected of having supported outlaws from the rebel group FRUD (Front of Reconstruction of Unity and Democracy) with weapons and money in the southern part of the country. FRUD made peace with the government in 1994, but outbreaks have since continued to try to fight the government side by force. Farah was jailed for six months 1996-97, convicted of insulting President Hassan Gouled.
