The Prosecutor General’s (PG) Office has submitted the case of the former President Mohamed Nasheed and former Defence Minister Talhath Ibrahim, for unlawfully detaining Chief Judge of the Criminal Court Abdullah Mohamed, to the court for prosecution.
According to the PG’s Office the case was forwarded for prosecution to the Hulhumale’ Court.
PG’s Office stated that the former Chief of Defence Force Moosa Ali Jaleel, Colonel Mohamed Ziyad and Brigadier General Ibrahim Mohamed Didi will also be prosecuted for their involvement of the illegal detainment of Chief Judge Abdullah.
