Mohamed Nazim

Nazim appeal hearing scheduled for Tuesday

A hearing of the appeal hearings for former Defense Minister Colonel (Rtd) Mohamed Nazim has been scheduled for Tuesday in Supreme Court.

The hearing is scheduled for 11 am, in which the state lawyers will present their case against Nazim's claim that the 11 year jail term had to be nullified.

Nazim was sentenced for 11 years on weapons possession charges, after a pistol was discovered in his residence. Criminal Court issued the verdict last year.
