Chief Justice Dr. Ahmed Abdulla Didi has paid a courtesy call on the Speaker of Parliament, President Mohamed Nasheed.

The meeting took place at the Parliament this Tuesday.

The Parliament, though it confirmed the meeting took place, has not disclosed any details regarding the topics discussed.

The meeting between the Chief Justice and the Speaker comes amid a heated battle between the Supreme Court and Judicial Service Commission (JSC) – of which the Speaker is a member.

JSC has opened investigations into Supreme Court Justice Abdulla Didi and three other judges.

It also recently announced the decision to open an investigation to establish whether the Supreme Court encroached on the powers of any State institution; and to initiate an evaluation of all magistrates, judges and justices in Maldives, without exception.
