HRCM although delayed, issued an important report- JP
Jumhooree Party (JP) has stated that the report of the Human Rights Commission of Maldives (HRCM) regarding the events of February 6 one day before the transfer of power is a very important and essential report although the commission delayed its publication.
In a press conference held at the main office of the party, JP’s Vice President Ameen Ibrahim said that this report should have been issued by the HRCM earlier and if it was published earlier than it would have enlightened the people regarding the reality of the former government. He said that the HRCM’s report is overdue. However, he commended the work of HRCM stating that the report is very important for the nation.
Ameen Ibrahim assured that the report of the HRCM clearly denies the allegations of the former President Mohamed Nasheed that his government was toppled by a coup. He said that the report states that Nasheed resigned after a series of unconstitutional actions and decisions. He said that the report is an answer to those who want to know the truth.
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.
