HRCM reveals that former govt tried to sack Judge Abdullah and send him abroad
The Human Rights Commission of Maldives (HRCM) has revealed that the former President Mohamed Nasheed’s government tried to sack the Chief Judge of the Criminal Court Abdullah Mohamed from his post and send him abroad while he was in detention in Girifushi.
The commission revealed this at a press conference held yesterday in relation to the commission’s assessment of the military detention of Criminal Court Chief Judge Uz. Abdulla Mohamed on 16 January.
HRCM President Mariyam Azra said that the commission’s investigation reveals that the Judge Abdullah was forced into acts which violated his human dignity although he was not exposed to physical violence.
Azra noted that the HRCM investigation has proved that the Judge was arrested in violation of the freedom and human rights stipulated by the Constitution of the Maldives. She said that the commission has requested the responsible authorities to take action against all those who were involved in the crime.
