Change in govt took place due to Nasheed’s unconstitutional orders: HRCM
Human Rights Commission of Maldives (HRCM) has stated that the change in government took place due to former President Nasheed’s unconstitutional actions and orders.
HRCM said this in a report of the commission into the events that lead to the transfer of power on February 7. According to the report, former President Nasheed was not under duress and no one threatened him at gun point. The report further said that Nasheed was under the protection of his loyal military up until his resignation.
HRCM said that the power transfer of February 7 was the result of Nasheed’s unconstitutional orders on the Police and the military. The commission added that these actions of Nasheed violated the rights of many of the people.
In view of the claims that there was a plan to throw Nasheed to a lynch mob on February 2, HRCM’s report stated that no one tried to attack former President Nasheed while he was at the Military Headquarters. The report noted that Nasheed’s securities were present the whole time at the military HQ.
According to the commission the report was shared with the concerned parties on Thursday. But the commission did not reveal the names of those parties.
Human Rights Commission of the Maldives has completed two investigations and shared its reports with concerned authorities. They are; military detention of Criminal Court Chief Judge Uz. Abdulla Mohamed on 16 January, and the human rights violations that occurred in Male’ and Addu Cities on 8 February.
