Nasheed's bodyguards questioned in May 6 security breach inquiry

Speaker of the Parliament and former President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed's bodyguards have been questioned by the parliament in its inquiry into the May 6 terror attack that targeted Nasheed.

The Parliament Committee on National Security Services (241 committees) began summoning individual MNDF officers last week to identify a possible breach in security that led to the attack. In this regard, Nasheed's bodyguards were summoned throughout Sunday, June 12th. While the inquiry is ongoing behind closed doors, no information is available on what the bodyguards were asked during the inquiry. Meetings have taken place both physically and online.

Nasheed was taken to ADK Hospital in Maldives' capital Male' on the night of May 6 after he sustained serious injuries in an explosion near his residence in Male'. According to the Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF), the blast occurred when an IED strapped to a motorcycle was detonated. Nasheed's security team, which included SPG officers, also sustained injuries during the May 6 attack.

Multiple critical surgeries were performed on Nasheed at ADK Hospital, and he is currently recuperating from his injuries in Germany. He was admitted and treated at a German military hospital and has since been released. However, his treatment continues.
