Maldives Police Service has charged MP for Thimarafushi constituency, Mohamed Musthafa, with terrorism and taken a statement from him following his remarks on Raajje TV.
Talking to the press outside the Police HQ after the statement, lawyer Mahfooz Saeed, representing MP Musthafa, said that his client was previously suspected of instigating support to overthrow the government and was summoned to the police on two occasions for questioning.
Mahfooz said that the charge was changed with support from the Prosecutor General and the MP cooperated fully with the police investigation.
Lawyer Mahfooz said that nothing the MP Musthafa has said empowers an unlawful overthrowing of the government and is stated in his statement to the police.
