The alleged audio of Criminal Court Judge Hussain Faiz Rashad is a voice match despite the judge denying the allegations. JSC has established a committee to investigate the judge speaking of a court case outside of the court allowing for his conversation to be manipulated and losing public trust in the judiciary.

The JSC emphasizes that although the forensic analysis indicates a voice match for Judge Hussain Faiz Rashad, the judge has made no mention regarding the court cases against former President Yameen Abdul Gayyoom.

In their statement, the Judicial Service Commission condemned the perpetrators who created the false audio and attacked the judges.
