The Prosecutor General’s Office has appealed a Criminal Court decision to release an alleged black magic practitioner from pre-trial detention.
The black magic practitioner, locally known as Fandithaveriya, was caught nude with a man and a woman in a shop called Dhanaal in Malé City on December 29.
According to news agency Haveeru, the man and woman were having sex on the instructions of the Fandithaveriya when they were arrested.
An appeal hearing was held on Wednesday. The case is ongoing at the High Court.
