Ismail Abdul Hameed
23 June 2010. MP for Kaashidhoo is to be summoned to Court over a corruption case involving a vessel he purchased while working at Male Municipality during the previous administration.
The court has ruled that the case of the State against Ismail Abdul Hameed, MP for Kaashidhoo, can be heard. The ruling was made in response to a procedural motion by his lawyers that the case cannot be tried.
The judge also asked Ismail Abdul Hameed to be present for the next hearing. Hameed was previously a DRP member at the time of the alleged crime, and then joined the MDP, but he is now an independent MP.
