Parliament speaker and former President Mohamed Nasheed says the information in the investigation report on the abduction of Ahmed Rilwan cannot be concealed any longer and that it will be publicized during trial proceedings.
Nasheed made the statement during the parliament sitting on Tuesday, while opening the debate on the investigation report that was presented by the Presidential Commission on Murders and Enforced Disappearances.
Nasheed said that a copy of the report was shared with him by the President of the commission Husnu Suood a month ago, and that the information in the report was also publicized during the press conference given by Suood earlier this week.
He said that the information in such reports cannot be concealed, adding that it will be further publicized during trial proceedings in the case. However, he said that he has been advised not to share the full report with the parliament and that the report that was published on the parliament members portal was a summarized report.
Meanwhile, some media outlets have reported that the parliamentary group leaders have been asked to return the full report, that had been shared with them by the parliament speaker. However, PG leader of Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) and Naifaru MP Ahmed Shiyam disputed the claim, stating that the report has not been returned.
He said that the parliament speaker had told them that there is some information in the report that needs to be concealed and that he would be sharing another draft of the report with them. However, he said that they have not been asked to return the report.
