Malé, Maldives — An investigation has been initiated against Civil Court Judge, Zubair Mohamed.

On Tuesday, Judicial Service Commission (JSC) revealed that an investigation was initiated due to accusations made against Criminal Court Judge Zubair, claiming that he was involved in politics.

During the 65th JSC meeting on September 09, the decision was confirmed to conduct an investigation regarding the matter, according to JSC.

Although the involvement of Judge Zubair was reported months ago, the investigation against Judge Zubair was only initiated by JSC after he decided to apply for the High Court Bench.

Judge Zubair had initially served on the Drug Court before he was transferred to the Civil Court in 2015.

At present, JSC has been initiating several investigations against judges of other courts as well.
