PG rejects case concerning alcohol bottles found in MP Moosa’s car

The Prosecutor General’s office has rejected a case sent by police concerning 168 alcohol bottles discovered inside the car of Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) Parliamentary Group leader MP ‘Reeko’ Moosa Manik.

Police Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam said the case was sent back by the Prosecutor General requesting the inclusion of missing information concerning the investigation.

”After including this information we will send it back to the Prosecutor General’s Office,” Shiyam said. ”We can’t disclose what information the Prosecutor General is requiring us to include.”

The bottles were found in Moosa’s car in February 2010 while he was out of the country. Moosa has claimed his driver was bribed to put the bottles of “cheap alcohol” into his car in an attempt to frame him for the crime.

That same week police arrested four expatriate men loading 168 bottles of whiskey and menthol gin into the car registered to Moosa, on the same day controversial liquor licensing regulations were unveiled by the Ministry of Economic Development.

Last year October police said the investigation in to the case was concluded and had beensent to Prosecutor General.

At the time the police refused to say whether Moosa would stand trial in the case.

Prosecutor General Ahmed Muiz did not respond to Minivan News at time of press.

  1. OMG, 168 bottles to frame reeko!!! Thats a lot of alcohol bottles to frame someone. i could belive reeko if it was 1 or 2, but with 168, its hard to believe. Funny.

  2. It may be a delivery to Zaki!!mistaken identity in a mysterious crime.

  3. Interesting how these cases get thrown back and forth without a trial for years.

  4. Apparently, this booze was filth, probably only good to clean the toilet. I can not see how stupid a set up you can get. Ridiculous, but what do you expect from that lot! They are not known for their intelligence.

  5. Alcohol in an MP's car?

    Alhan Fahmy as the VP of the ruling party?

    Seafood Musthafa is a businessman?

    Aren't these just ordinary day-to-day workings of the Maldivian State?

    We are a joke of a nation and it is our fault that we got duped by a charlatan and a snake-oil-salesmen to place their clan in power.

  6. Reeko is disappointed only because it was "CHEAP" alcohol... THIS IS FUNNY .....

  7. 168 bottles of alcohol to frame Moosa? Why didn't he say to drown him after a hard days wash?
    OMG! Could you read between the lines!!

  8. Really Moosa? That's the best you can get? How pathetic. You are very wrong if you think all Maldivians are that stupid.
