Malé, Maldives – MP of Ungoofaaru Constituency Mohamed Waheed said that the problem is due to some Parliamentary members getting swayed by the corruption of some Ministers.

MP Waheed tweeted saying that Parliamentary members are not elected based on a certain person’s photo nor with the aid of someone. He noted that these members were elected by advertising Agenda-19 for their campaigns.

Speaker of the Parliament Mohamed Nasheed instructed to send a letter to the Prosecutor General, requesting to prosecute Zameel, after he sent a signed letter to the parliament, denying the request to summon individual officers of the Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF).

Instead of individual officers, MNDF will answer to National Security Service Committee, on their investigation of the terror attack against Nasheed on May 6.

Member of the Ethic’s and Privileges Committee, Representative for Dhangethi Constituency Mohamed Nazim submitted to dismiss the review request. With the exception of Central Hithadhoo Representative Ahmed Rasheed, all the members voted in favour.

Following this, there were heated exchanges in a WhatsApp group with the members of the national council. Chairperson of MDP Hassan Latheef conveyed a message from Speaker Nasheed accusing President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih of influencing MNDF and attempting to interfere in the Parliament’s inquiry.
