HRCM’s report should be submitted to court to seek justice- Sheikh Imran
President of the Adhaalath Party (AP) Sheikh Imran Abdullah has said that it is important to submit the three reports of the Human Rights Commission of Maldives (HRCM) issued yesterday to the courts of law to seek justice.
Sheikh Imran said that the country has seen no human rights abuses as many as the rights violated on February 6 in the near history of Maldives. He said that this was the result of the unconstitutional orders and actions of the former President Mohamed Nasheed and justice should be served.
Sheikh Imran said that the former President would be tried for terrorism if the Prosecutor General’s office were to evaluate the reports of the HRCM.
“HRCM has today agreed with those who called for the prosecution of former President Nasheed on the charge of terrorism. And there is ample evidence in the reports of the commission to prosecute Nasheed. The next step is to take action against him,” he said.
In addition to this, Sheikh Imran said that the coalition has been making an effort to continue to the peace talks but Nasheed has been blocking every path to it.
“What we want is what is called in English ‘PEACE’ peace but Nasheed wants ‘PIECE’ piece. So how is it possible to bring these two together?,” he said.
He said that despite Nasheed’s discontentment at the participation of Adhaalath President in the peace talks, he as the President will represent Adhaalath Party in the talks.
Sheikh Imran said that Nasheed would not be given the opportunity to cause unrest in the country and instigate violence following the release of the report of Commission of National Inquiry (CoNI).
“Developed states will never accept such criminal activities. We seek justice through legal means by going to the courts of law. As such I call upon the Prosecutor General to prosecute these cases and present them in front of the law as soon as possible,” he said.
