Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has decided that the Supreme Court may not look into the constitutional dispute case filed at by Justice Abdulla Didi.

The decision was reached through a majority of the commission during its 35th meeting on Monday, chaired by President Abdulla Areef.

Once President Areef abstained from the meeting, deputy Masthoor Husnee had taken over.

Other decisions by the commission include looking into a disciplinary case filed against Justice Didi by the Maldives Police Service (MPS) as well as probing a bribery case filed against him by Parliament Speaker and former President Mohamed Nasheed following which the justice was suspended last week.

Further, police had also via letter, informed the commission that investigations are being carried out into a case against the justice for allegedly misusing his position to gain illicit wealth.

Another one of the cases against the justice include continuing to work despite his suspension.

Didi was summoned to the committee late Monday night for a statement where he had asked the court for “open” investigations into his case.

While Supreme Court has since issued a stay order in the case, JSC decided to uphold its initial decision. The court has since issued an order saying that any decision against its first order “is invalid.”
