MDP decides not to accept court rulings and charges
Opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP)’s National Steering Committee has passed a resolution not to accept any verdicts and rulings issued by the local courts of law until the Judiciary of the Maldives is reformed as recommended by foreign organisations.
The resolution was passed in the 128th meeting of MDP National Steering Committee held yesterday. The resolution was submitted by former government’s Foreign Minister Ahmed Naseem. The resolution was supported by former governments’ Housing Minister Mohamed Aslam.
The resolution submitted by Naseem and supported by Aslam was passed unanimously. The resolution stated that the current government after toppling the former President Mohamed Nasheed through a coup is intimidating opposition leaders from the members of the Peoples’ Majlis, members of MDP, City Councilors and former President Nasheed by charging them with terrorism and different crimes they never committed to weaken their resolve.
The resolution also accused the recent Court’s detention of former President Mohamed Nasheed as politically motivated. MDP’s resolution also stated that the present regime fears Nasheed will win an election and therefore so they plan to convict him of something so they can prevent him from standing. The resolution added that the government knows their grip on power is dependent on removing Nasheed from the political equation.
