Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom on Thursday visited his jailed son, Dhiggaru MP Faris Maumoon, at the Maafushi Prison.
This is the first time the former president is visiting his son since his initial visit on July 18, when MP Faris was arrested for bribery and undue influence on lawmakers ahead of the censure motion against the parliament’s speaker.
Meanwhile, the MP is also undergoing another trial over misusing the flag and logo of the ruling Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM).
Maumoon was accompanied by his daughter and Ministry of Health’s state minister, Dunya Maumoon.
MP Faris’ mother Nasreena Ibrahim and his sister Yumna Maumoon had visited him earlier during his incarceration; however, they were not seen on Thursday.
