The Criminal Court on Tuesday ordered to remand member of Male City Council, Zaidul Ameen, who was arrested over allegedly blackmailing a judge but is charged with three other offences.
The court ordered to keep Zaid under custody at a place determined by the Ministry of Home Affairs but did not specify the reason behind the verdict. The hearing was held behind closed doors, barring journalists and the public from attending the trial.
The state is charging Zaid with the illicit release of prohibited information without permission, unlawfully obtaining information and obstructing law enforcement.
