Abdulla Munaz, on Monday, resigned from the recently formed Presidential Commission on investigation of murder and enforced disappearances.

According to Mihaaru, Munaz resigned due to his appointment as the Commissioner of Prisons.

The commission will release a list of cases currently under investigation in the following week.

Furthermore, the commission aims to solve these cases within a time period of three months.

The commission's chair Husnu al-Suood pronounced that a period of two years has been allocated to investigate these high profile cases. The former Attorney General suggested that the cases will most likely be solved before the deadline.

According to Suood, there are 29 cases of unsolved murders and missing persons.

The commission was formed on November 17, following President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih's oath taking ceremony.

Following Munaz's resignation, the commission is left with four members:

- Husnu al-Suood

- Adam Ibrahim

- Fareesha Abdulla

- Misbah Abbas
