Jailed former Vice President Abdulla Adheeb declared in a letter to the Supreme Court that he is willing to expose the truth behind a hand gun that was found in the residence of former Defence Minister Mohamed Nazim, which had landed the latter in jail over illegal weapon’s possession.
Mihaaru has confirmed that Adheeb, who is currently in Dhoonidhoo Detention Centre, stated in his letter that former Defence Minister Nazim was not aware of the pistol nor has any information on how it was found in his residence.
The letter was sent to Supreme Court a day before the government closed its institutions for the Eid al-Fitr holidays at the end of Ramadan.
Adheeb claims that he knows the truth behind the pistol along with three bullets found in Nazim’s house of which, he assured Chief Justice Abdulla Saeed, Nazim has no knowledge.
Claiming to be aware of the reasons behind the incident, the perpetrators and others involved in it, Adheeb proclaimed that he is prepared to testify in court and expose the whole truth to the public. Reiterating that the pistol and bullets did not belong to Nazim, he further claimed that he can prove that the former defence minister was unaware of the plot.
Mihaaru was not able to receive comment from Adheeb, Nazim or any of the authorities regarding this letter yet.
