Malé, Maldives — The statement from MP for Meedhoo Constituency, Ahmed Siyaam Mohamed saying that the MP for Thulhaadhoo Constituency, Hisaan Hussain should be “hanged” has been reported to the Police and the Defence Ministry.

Starting today’s parliament meeting, the chairman, MP for Vilufushi Constituency Hassan Afeef noted that Hisaan has brought his attention to the issue that Siyaam has stated that Hisaan should be hanged.

Afeef detailed that the incident took place on June 6 after a meeting with the 241 committee when Siyaam spoke to Hisaan very impolitely and stated in front of other Parliament members as well that it would not be a sin to hang Hisaan to death.

As such behaviour should not be seen from a member of the Parliament, Afeef informed that the issue has been sent to the Parliament’s Committee on Member’s Privileges and Ethics along with Police and the Defence Ministry to further investigate it.
