'No complaint filed against Supreme Court justices regarding Feb 1st order' - JSC

Judicial Srvice Commission (JSC) has stated that no cases against any additional Supreme Court justices were filed at the commission.

JSC's statement comes following reports that cases against three additional Supreme Court judges were submitted at the commission following the commission's investigation and suspension of Supreme Court Justice Abdulla Didi.

Acting Secretary General of the commission, Hassan Zaheen confirmed to AVAS that no other Supreme Court justices are being investigated by the commission.

It was falsely reported on Sunday that disciplinary cases against the three Supreme Court justices who overturned the controversial Supreme Court order issued on February 1st, 2018 was filed at JSC.

The landmark ruling ordered the release of nine political detainees and re-instated twelve lawmakers who had earlier lost their parliament seats.

However, the two judges who signed the order, then Chief Justice Abdulla Saeed and Justice Ali Hameed were subsequently arrested, after which the remaining judges of the Supreme Court nullified the ruling. They were Chief Justice Ahmed Abdulla Didi, Judge Abdulla Areef, and Judge Adam Mohamed .
