HRCM delegation obstructed by Fuah Mulah residents

A four-person HRCM delegation sent to Fuah Mulah to consult with locals regarding the UN’s Universal Periodic Review has been delayed at the harbour by local residents, Miadhu reports.

President of HRCM Ahmed Saleem said the locals were under the misconception that the delegation were attempting to free suspects in a gang attack, currently in custody.

“People tend to believe that what HRCM does is to help releasing prisoners but that is not true,” Saleem told Miadhu.

The delay had meant that feedback from the island could not be included in the report, Saleem said.
