Govt will not engage in any discussions related to CoNI report- Abbas
Spokesperson of the government, Abbas Adil Riza has stated that the government will not engage in any discussions related to the final report of the Commission of National Inquiry (CoNI).
Abbas Adil Riza said that the government does not want to hold discussions based on assumptions on the possible decision of the report of the Commission of National Inquiry established to make an independent and impartial investigation into developments in the Maldives from 14 January 2012 to 8 February 2012 and the reality of the events of February 7 which lead to the transfer of power.
“The government will not hold any discussions with anyone in this regard. The report is not the final verdict but will assist the relevant independent authorities to take legal action. Legal actions will be taken by these authorities not the commission. So there’s no need to make a fiasco over this,” he said.
Abbas said that all parties should curb down and should given the Commission the opportunity to issue their final report. He said that the President established the commission to investigate the events that lead to the transfer of power and issue an investigative report on the matter.
“Government will take the necessary legal actions that needs to be taken based on that report. However, this claim of the MDP to reinstate Nasheed as the President after resignation of President Dr. Waheed if the commission decides that there was a coup, then there is nothing in the constitution to back this claim,” he said.
In view of the warning of the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) that they would goto the Supreme Court if the commission decides there was a coup, Abbas said that everyone has the right to goto the courts of law if they are unhappy about a matter.
