The only thing missing in President Abdulla Yameen’s court case to annul the presidential election is a magic carpet, says attorney Hisaan Hussain.

Speaking to the press on Monday after the Supreme Court’s second hearing in the case, Hisaan, who is representing the opposition coalition, said that since day one they have been accusing President Yameen of fabricating claims to back his allegations of electoral fraud.

Even after President Yameen’s two attorneys spoke at length about their issues with election procedures at Monday’s hearing, Hisaan repeated her accusation that the President is only fabricating claims because he refuses to accept that the people have decided to vote him out office.

Hisaan said that while President Yameen’s allegations include the use of rings with hidden markers, disappearing ink, and mark-altering ballot papers, the only thing missing is a magic carpet.

Responding to Hisaan, President Yameen’s attorney Abbas Shareef said that the people who now say they have won the election had earlier voiced concern that electoral fraud could be a possibility and that while Hisaan ridicules the plaintiff’s claims, the opposition had made similar accusations in the previous election.

Nooruh Salam Abu Bakur, also representing the opposition, said that if there are criminal offenses concerning the election, it should be filed at the Criminal Court.

The last hearing in the case will be held at 10:30am on Tuesday.
