Judicial Service Commission (JSC), on Tuesday, suspended Chief Magistrate for the Dhaalu Judicial Constituency Abdulrazzaq Mohamed and opened an investigation into a disciplinary issue lodged against him

JSC released a statement revealing that the police had informed the commission of its investigation into claims of forgery. The claim stems from a signature made on an agreement that was presented at the Kudahuvadhoo Court, Dhaalu Atoll concerning an ongoing case.

The judicial watchdog stated that it had initiated its own inquiry into the matter after receiving information from the police.

JSC is currently investigating several judges over various issues. While a number of them are already on suspension, some have also been dismissed from their positions.
