Current information on the above-mentioned
subject could not be found among the sources currently available to
the DIRB. For general information on the Gadabursi and their
homeland areas, please consult Responses to Information Requests
SOM17272.E of 12 May 1994 and SOM16761 of 16 March 1994.
According to Supplement to Information
Session on Country Conditions on Somalia, the Gadabursi, with
the support of the late Siad Barre government, were "so heavily
armed" that they started to encroach on the Issa's grazing land
(DIRB 15 Feb. 1996, 52). The latter sought the protection of the
Somali National Movement (SNM) (ibid.). This source states that the
SMN had little resistance from the Gadabursi because they reached
"an accommodation" (ibid., 53).
This Response was prepared after
researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does
not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular
claim to refugee status or asylum.
