Former Legal Affairs Minister Azima Shakoor has received documents related to the charges pressed against her by the State.
Her brother, Ali Amir, received the documents on her behalf after attending the Criminal Court on Thursday.
The court attempted to submit the documents to her on a previous occasion, but was unable to do so as she was abroad at the time.
The State has pressed her for aiding in a money-laundering scheme - charges that she insists were intended to destroy her political career and reputation. The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), meanwhile, says that the charges were spurred by the false testimonies she gave during the investigation into former President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom. She was also summoned to the police station to give her statements regarding the charges.
According to criminal law procedures in this type of cases, the defendant must receive the pertinent documents within five days of the submission of the case.
