PPM pledges harsher punishments for assaulting police, ‘obstructing police duty’

Punishments for obstructing police duty and assaulting police officers will be made harsher under a Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) administration, according to PPM vice presidential candidate and former Home Minister Mohamed Jameel Ahmed, reports local media.

Jameel noted that punishments for those who call for attacking police will be made harsher by amending the Penal Code as part of PPM’s policy for maintaining peace and security.

He pledged that a PPM government would try and ‘wrap up’ all criminal investigations and send them for prosecution within a month, as well as make “major changes” to investigative mechanisms.

“At the end of the party’s first five-year period, mechanisms will be set up to facilitate for prosecution to proceed within 24 hours,” said Jameel.

Surveillance mechanisms will be installed “across the whole Maldives” as well as “state-of-the-art forensic facilities”, he added.

    If Jameel can categorically say that this will be applied for incidents that occured prior to the amendment of the Penal Code and or to those happening during the forthcoming elections; it is sensible!

    If not, this is questionable!

    The future mullah-police must not face any obstruction in discharging their Holy Duties. Full powers and privileges must be given to the Inquisitors for they keep the Dhivehistani faith in line. Harsher punishments like crucfixion, mutilation, stonings and floggings must be employed if we are to maintain “peace” and “security” in this mullacracy.

    Yes we need some solid action to stop the crimes? But I am not too sure if Jameel can make it happen?
