The Prosecutor General’s Office sent back the second case seeking another charge against Jumhoory Party leader Qasim Ibrahim by Maldives Police Service, concluding that a lawsuit cannot be filed against him.

While three charges have already been pressed against the lawmaker of Maamigili Constituency over attempting to bribe lawmakers regarding the no confidence motion against Parliament Speaker Abdulla Maseeh earlier this year, the new allegations made by Police also regard the same issue. The latest case accuses Qasim of attempting to influence lawmakers to gain the necessary 42 signatures to petition the motion of no confidence against the speaker.

Speaking to Mihaaru last Monday, Prosecutor General Aishath Bisham declared that the case was denied as Police could not provide enough evidence to prove the allegations.

Qasim was also arrested and remanded twice on the case and was released last Wednesday under strict conditions.
