The Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) has voiced alarm over Chief Justice Ahmed Muthasim Adnan’s security breach, which involved a group of individuals tampering with surveillance cameras installed at his house and then attempting to force entry.
The complaint of a group of individuals tampering with security cameras installed at the Chief Justice’s house, following which they attempted to force-enter the residence, was presented to the Maldives Police Service on Thursday, however no arrests have been made.
The MDP stated in a statement published on Friday that it is the government’s obligation to ensure the security of the chief justice and his family.
It further stated that the laws require the government to give official houses to the chiefs of the three powers of the state, emphasizing that the greatest level of protection must be provided for the chief justice at his current residence as well.
The country’s main ruling party went on to say that a group of individuals violating his protection is highly alarming, before urging for the chief justice’s safety to be guaranteed.
