Mohamed Maimoon and Muhjad Ahmed Nasih - police

Two men have been sentenced to death over the murder of Abdul Muhuthee (Bobby).

Muhuthee died in a brutal assault in an alley in front the finance ministry in 2012, with the attackers mistaking him for someone else.

The Criminal Court found Mohamed Maimoon and Muhjad Ahmed Nasih guilty of the murder in early May but found Ali Mushahfau not-guilty.

The court has now stated that Muhuthee’s family wants Qisas or retributive justice for his murder and so sentences Maimoon and Nasih to death according to Islamic and Maldivian law.

Three other suspects who were minors at the time of the murder had their trials in the Juvenile Court and two of them were issued the death sentence, which was backed by the High Court. Their appeal cases are now at the Supreme Court.

During the gang assault on 18 February 2012, Muhuthee was stabbed 20 times and the brutality of the attack had split his skull.
