Ahmed Shiyam, MP for Naifaru constituency has requested Prosecutor General Hussain Shameem to review the jail sentence of Former President Abdulla Yameen.
President Yameen is currently serving 5 years in jail after being found guilty of charges of money laundering.
Speaking at an event held last night, Shiyam said that PG has reviewed many cases so far and thus they could do the same for President Yameen as well. He said that the case against President Yameen is a politically motivated one, which would be clear to anyone who watched the hearings being conducted.
Shiyam also said that PG Shameem is a legal expert, who would understand how the sentence against President Yameen was passed in a rush. He also said that if the current government had any decency, they would release President Yameen.
He said that if PG Shameem is someone who came to his position to genuinely serve the people, then he must review the case of President Yameen.
