State charge man of hiding Moosa Inaz

A man has been been charged for hiding fugitive Moosa Inaz, who was convicted for his part in the 2007 Sultan Park explosions.

Ahmed Jihad of M. Liyaage, is charged for hiding Inaz in his room. Inaz allegedly gave the authorities the slip while on a visit to ADK hospital.

Police said Inaz then hid in Jihad’s room, and that Jihad lied to police when they came looking for him.

Jihad had denied the charge of hiding a fugitive and has requested a lawyer.

Police said Inaz has a past history of escaping from authorities, managing to do so from both Maafushi jail and Dhoonidhoo jail.
