SINGAPORE – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has clarified that the Singapore government was not in any way involved in the appointment of retired Singapore High Court Judge G P Selvam as co-chair of the Commission of National Inquiry in the Maldives.
In response to media queries, an MFA spokesperson said the government of Maldives and the Commonwealth Secretariat had made direct approaches to some retired Singapore judges to co-chair the Commission of National Inquiry.
The spokesperson added that it was Mr Selvam’s personal decision to accept the appointment by the Government of Maldives.
The Maldives’ Commission of National Inquiry was set up to probe the circumstances surrounding the transfer of power which happened in a coup earlier this year. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
