The case was submitted to the 241 committee by MP for West Henveiru constituency Hassan Latheef.

In a letter addressed to parliament, MP Latheef urged to ensure that the attack on PG Shameem is investigated thoroughly, as a serious matter and to forward the case to the People’s Majlis Committee on National Security Services to ensure the probe is competed within an adequate time.

The prosecutor general was attacked on the streets of the congested capital of Malé City on Wednesday morning.

MPS received the report of the attack on the Prosecutor General not long after.

Shameem was treated for his injuries at ADK Hospital and has been discharged since. He is currently in stable condition.

The PG Office has revealed that Shameem’s security has been strengthened in the wake of the attack.
