Lawyer Hussain Shameem - Mohamed Sharuhaan

Renowned law practitioner Hussain Shameem’s lawyer rights have been restored on Thursday, after a hiatus of over four months.

The Department of Judicial Administration (DJA) had said that they had notified the Supreme Court having filed the case on Thursday, after having looked into the case of the lawyer the Maldives Police Service (MPS) had been investigating.

Accordingly, the judges bench of the Supreme Court had ruled that Shameem’s lawyer rights, from Thursday forward, have been restored and he will be allowed to practice law.

Shameem was last suspended on the 22nd of February while he was representing former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom’s case.

He was previously suspended for a lengthy period of time in 2015 as well, while he had been taking on former Vice President Ahmed Adeeb Abdul Ghafoor’s case.
