Police summoned Independent MP Ibrahim Muttalib to police headquarters yesterday, in a case relating to bribery.
MP Muttalib recently forwarded a no-confidence motion against Education Minister Dr Mustafa Lufthy, prior to Lufthy’s resignation from his cabinet post.
Police Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam confirmed Muttalib was summoned in response to a report received by police, but declined to give further information.
Muttalib said he was summoned to police station yesterday afternoon.
”They told me that it was a case related to bribery,” said Muthalib. ”I asked them to tell me more details of the charges,” he added, but police refused and instead requested he write a statement, he claimed.
”I refused, because they did not give me any information as to what I was being charged for,” he said.
Police recently arrested and charged two MPs for allegations of bribery and treason.
