Police, army chiefs summoned to 241 committee

Parliament’s ‘241’ Security Services Committee has summoned Police Commissioner Ahmed Faseeh and Chief of Defence Forces Major General Moosa Ali Jaleel to appear before the committee tomorrow.

A motion to summon the security chiefs was proposed by opposition MPs Ali Azim, Riyaz Rasheed and Yousuf Naeem.

Parliament’s National Security Committee was convened last week following the controversial arrest of Judge Abdulla Mohamed. However the counselor general of parliament advised against proposals to summon the security chiefs as it was in the purview of the 241 committee.

Moosa Jaleel has been asked to appear at 1pm and Faseeh at 2pm.
