Opposition PPM Vice-President MP Ghassan Maumoon has stated that the final outcome of the efforts by the opposition coalition will be the release of opposition leader and former President Abdulla Yameen. Taking on to Twitter, MP Ghassan Maumoon said that their efforts will only end when the former President Abdulla Yameen is free and be elected back in to the President’s Office.
MP Ghassan Maumoon who serves as the Guraidhoo Constituency MP said made the statement on twitter following the verdict by the Supreme Court of Maldives yesterday. At the final court session held yesterday, Supreme Court Justice Uz. Husnu Al Suood passed the verdict stating that the Criminal Court’s order to freeze the 8 personal accounts of former President Abdulla Yameen was unlawful as it does not state how they’re relevant to the charges raised, with the financial amount involved in the case being held in an escrow account held between the former President and the Anti-Corruption Commission of Maldives.
Supreme Court Justice Uz Husnu Al Suood also highlighted that the court order by the Criminal Court does not explain how the suspicious transaction deposited by an unknown individual was relevant to the other 8 personal accounts of former President Yameen. The verdict deeming the court order by Criminal Court of Maldives as unlawful was passed in support of the High Court passed on 31 March 2019 which repealed the Criminal Court’s order.
