Former Chief Justice Dr. Ahmed Abdulla Didi has expressed concern on the Defense Ministry’s refusal to reveal the number of Indian soldiers stationed in the Maldives. In a tweet made today, Dr. Ahmed Abdulla Didi stated that “Under Article 115 (M) of the constitution, the President of the Maldives may only use his constitutionally granted powers under Article 115(R), and is answerable to the citizens of Maldives.”.
The former Chief Justice continued on to state that the number of Indian soldiers stationed in the Maldives must be revealed as classifying such a document contravenes Article 102 of the United Nations Charter.
Former Chief Justice Dr. Abdullah Didi made this tweet after the Ministry of Defense and National Security declined to reveal the total number of Indians soldiers stationed in the Maldives. It is speculated that the tweet also rebutted the recent tweeted made by Brigadier General (retired) Ibrahim didi who claimed that President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has the right to ask for Indian military intervention if the people revolts.
