Ahmed V Magan

Ahmed v Magan in 2011

United States views on international law (based on the document “Digest of U.S. Practice in International Law”): On March 15, 2011, the United States submitted a statement of interest in a case in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. Ahmed v. Magan, No. 10-342. The Ahmed case is similar to Samantar, discussed in section 2 above. The suit against Magan, another former Somali official, was brought by a different plaintiff, Ahmed, a native of Somalia, who alleged that Magan, as a colonel and chief of the National Security Service Department of Investigations in Somalia, had directed and participated in interrogating and torturing plaintiff and others. Magan resides in the United States and Ahmed is a resident and citizen of the United Kingdom. The suit was also brought pursuant to the TVPA and the ATS. The statement of interest in Ahmed, like the statement of interest in Samantar, conveyed the State Department's determination of non-immunity. The full text of the U.S. statement of interest in Ahmed and the State Department's determination of non-immunity are both available at (internet link) state.gov/s/l/c8183.htm.
