Former Attorney General and Gender Minister appointed to Judicial Service Commission

Attorney General Aishath Azima Shakoor was appointed to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) yesterday (July 2) by President Mohamed Waheed Hassan Manik, reports local media.

The JSC appointment was made hours after parliament rejected Shakoor’s appointment as Minister of Gender, Family, and Human Rights, according to local media.

Shakoor was reappointed to the post of Attorney General Monday (July 1), a post she previously held before serving as acting Gender Minister.
