Former Deputy Prosecutor General Hussain Shameem has said that the Police Commissioner usually cannot question the Attorney General after he makes a request.
Hussain Shameem said this in a tweet regarding the case of murdered journalist Ahmed Rilwan.
Regarding the presidential commission’s allegations of two police officers’ attempts to forge passports to conceal Rilwan’s murder, Shameem said that they can and should be investigated under Section 310 of the Penal Code.
He said that there is enough evidence to warrant prosecution and that the Police Commissioner may not usually ask questions when the AG makes a request.
While the AG requested the police service to seek arrest warrants for the two intelligence officers implicated in the case, the police service has stated that there was no legal ground to arrest the officers.
