Judicial Service Commission (JSC), on Wednesday, announced its decision to investigate a case against High Court Judge Hassan Ali and Civil Court Chief Judge Abdulla Ali.

JSC revealed that two separate committees were formed to investigate the case.

According to JSC, the case against the High Court Judge will be investigated by a committee comprised of Vice President of the Commission Masthoor Husnee and members Judge Mohamed Easa Fulhu and Attorney General Ibrahim Riffath.

A second committee consisting Vice President Masthoor, AG Riffath and JSC's High Court representative Abdul Rauf Ibrahim will probe the case against Civil Court Chief Judge Abdulla.

JSC further announced that it would investigate a case against Chief Magistrate of Dhanbidhoo in Laamu Atoll, Ahmed Shareef by a committee comprised of Masthoor, Judge Rauf and Easa Fulhu.

The Commission is currently investigating into cases against several judges including Supreme Court Judge Abdulla Didi, Family Court Chief Judge Hassan Saeed, Criminal Court Hassan Najeeb, High Court Chief Judge Shujau Usman and certain other magistrates. Judge Didi was suspended from his post due to the ongoing investigation.

The Commission recently launched a probe into a case against three Supreme Court judges including Chief Justice Dr Ahmed Abdulla Didi. While the Investigative Committee recommended advising the three judges as a measure against them, JSC has yet to decide a course of action.
