MP Adil, is still in Police custody, as he has been arrested under a court order for 15 days. Haveeru reports that the girl is 13 years old according to sources. Local media also report that the case has been submitted to relevant authorities.
We have learnt that an official of the government responsible for the protection of children’s rights, did point out casually to a friend, that this case may also go in the same way as the previous cases, which means that the MP is unlikely to be convicted. The fact that a senior government official responsible for the protection of children thinks in this way is alarming.
The fact remains that Maldives remains a haven for peadophiles through the dictatorship as well as in the newly introduced Westminster Democracy of Aneh Dhivehiraajje.
