The cameraman of local television channel Raajje TV has appealed the Criminal Court’s verdict ordering him to pay a fine of MVR 3,000 after he was convicted of obstructing police.
Adam Zareer is convicted for pushing police barricades in an attempt to enter a restricted area during a protest in March 2015. Though his offence carries a jail term in addition to a penalty, the court narrowed his sentence down to a fine of MVR 3,000 as this is Zareer’s first proven criminal offence.
