He has "raised this matter in the Human Rights Council on 26 June 2015, and had previously discussed it at a Bureau meeting with the Vice-Presidents."
Welcoming the assurance and actions already taken by UN Human Rights Council President Suhas Chakma stated, "I call upon President Abdullah Yameen of the Maldives to place a new bill in the parliament to rescind the judgement of the Supreme Court of the Maldives against the HRCM before the end of the ongoing UN Human Rights Council. This is absolutely possible considering the speed under which the Government of Maldives has recently enacted the law to impose age bar on Presidential candidates and further measures being taken to expedite the impeachment of Vice President Dr Mohamed Jameel Ahmed. If President Yameen shows the same commitment for the rule of law and strengthening the democracy, there shall not be any cause of action by the President of the UN Human Rights Council."
