Unknown pills discovered inside Majlis coffee machine

MPs have today revealed the discovery of an unknown type of pill in a coffee machine inside the parliament.

At about 11:23pm Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party MP Rozeyna Adam tweeted pictures of the pills, statng that MPs’ lives were at risk.

According to Rozeyna, after a few minutes a police forensic team went to the parliament to investigate the case, although she went on to question whether opposition MPs could trust them.

Maldivian Democratic Party MP Eva Abdulla wrote on her twitter page that the lady working at the parliament had noticed the coffee inside the machine was discolored. When she threw it away she found the pills in the drainage.

The parliament secretariat has issued a statement confirming the allegations.

The parliament said that police and Maldives National Defence Force are investigating the case.

Speaking at parliament today, Eva expressed concern with similar incidents occurring in the run-up to no-confidence votes against cabinet ministers and called for a prompt investigation.

The Inter-Parliamentary Union has recently written to the Speaker of the Majlis requesting an urgent visit to the Maldives in order to ensure that MPs can  work “unhindered, without fear of intimidation and harassment or attack on their physical integrity”.

Eva noted that the security cameras near the room where the coffee machine was kept has not been functional for some time despite repeated requests to fix them.

A source within the parliament today told Minivan News that the pills appear to be a laxative called Dulcotax.

The incident occurred while MPs were debating the no-confidence motion against Attorney General Azima Shukoor, which was eventually passed.

  6. All MPs should be subject to urinalysis after every session of Majlis! This episode goes some way in explaining the zoo that the Majlis has become.

    I really do wonder what they take inside that building.
