Independent Institutions Committee has launched separate probes into each and every member of Maldives Broadcasting Commission.
The committee, at its last meeting, established a four-member subcommittee to carry out and complete its probe by Saturday, July 6.
The subcommittee will question each BroadCom member individually.
THE SUBCOMMITTEE INVESTIGATING BROADCOM
- Velidhoo MP Mohamed Abdulla Shafeeq
- Gan MP Mohamed Wisam
- South Thinadhoo MP Abdulla Saneef
- Vilimale’ MP Ahmed Usham
The meeting to question the first member, President of BroadCom, Mohamed Shaheeb, was held behind closed doors by the subcommittee at 10 am this Thursday.
The Independent Institutions Committee, last week, made the decision to hold a no-confidence vote to impeach Ismail Sofwan – the former Vice President of BroadCom.
In a subsequent meeting, the committee agreed to decide on measures against the other BroadCom members after questioning each of them separately.
All six members of the BroadCom was questioned by the committee on June 19, during which members accused each other of wrongdoing. They also admitted to singling out specific media stations for penalties.
The BroadCom members also admitted to attempting to shut down private television channel, RaajjeTV, at orders from then-President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom in 2018.
