Former Police Commissioner and lawmaker of Kinbidhoo constituency Abdulla Riyaz claimed late Sunday that he is being accused of obstructing Police for refusing to unlock his mobile phone despite Police’ orders.

Speaking to the press after a three-hour interrogation on Sunday night, Riyaz said that he tried to unlock his mobile phone with three different passcodes but had failed to remember the correct code.

Riyaz, who is the deputy leader of both Jumhoory Party (JP) and its parliamentary group, claimed that he never switches off his phone and always uses the fingerprint scan to unlock it.

He stressed that the court order to confiscate his mobile phone never mentioned that he should give his fingerprint.
