Civil Court Judge Mohamed Haleem - Mohamed Sharuhaan

Judge Mohamed Haleem of the Maldivian Civil Court has on Tuesday resigned from his position.

Judge Haleem sent his letter of resignation to Chief Justice Abdulla Areef, which says that he resigned in order to support President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih’s judicial reform agenda.

In this letter, Judge Haleem also said he believes all current adjudicators at local courts need to resign in order for the reform agenda to work.

Judge Haleem was appointed to the Civil Court on 22nd January, 2019.

In mid-2018, Judge Haleem was embroiled in controversy after testimonies given to the local police were leaked. In these testimonies, Judge Haleem claimed to have passed sentences expressly as stated by then sitting Supreme Court justice Ali Hameed.

Haleem claimed to have ‘keenly’ followed the instruction of Justice Hameed in deciding cases he presided over.
