Impeached Vice President Ahmed Adeeb is now facing prosecution on charges of possessing illegal weapons and bribing police officers into divulging state secrets, the police have said.
Chief Superintendent of Police Hamdhoon Rasheed, speaking to the press shortly before the impeachment, said: “We are investigating two cases against the vice president. The first is, Ahmed Adeeb Abdul Ghafoor attempted to exert undue influence and bribe some police’s intelligence officers into divulging state secrets and to make use of their skills for his personal benefit.
“The second: … members of the public have shared information with us, and some have given us statements that Adeeb possesses a pistol at his apartment. Both cases will be sent for prosecution within a few days.”
