Majlis members in voice recordings identified by Maldives media

The Maldives print, television and Internet media have identified the voices and names in three voice recordings made available on the Internet yesterday.

The voices were those of Kuludufushi-South MP Mohamed ‘Kutti’ Nasheed, Dhiggaru MP and Majlis deputy speaker Ahmed Nazim, Mulaku MP and leader of the People’s Alliance party Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom, and Maamigili MP and Jumhooree party leader Gasim ‘Buruma’ Ibrahim, says the Maldives media.

Gasim Ibrahim is chairperson of the permanent Majlis committee for economic affairs, and chairperson of the Majlis sub-committee considering the Tourism Goods and Services bill and the Business Profit Tax bill. Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom is the younger brother of former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and heads the permanent Majlis committee for national security. Both Gasim and Yameen were arrested and charged with bribery and treason last week.

Mohamed ‘Kutti’ Nasheed admits that he took part in the conversations in his personal Internet blog where he says a conversation he had with Gasim Ibrahim was not about raising money to bribe Majlis members.

  1. ..and do these 'honourable' members expect us (the public) to believe that they are working towards making the government/executive more accountable instead of obstructing it!!

    shame on us if we believe them...

  2. Think in a Holistic manner. Why not make a list of all beneficiaries, to whom gasim has pledged money in relation to his political interests. Who think this is a once off incident??? What happens if there are MDP members who have also been pledged money??? Think Open. anekkaaves alhugandu dhannavaalaanee kobaahey BODU MAZARU???? Olympahah gosgen viyas bodu manzaru balaigen kuriyah dhamaa higaa.

  3. I can't stop laughing . Is this the begining of the end . DEJAVU !!!!!!!!!
