Special advisor to former President Mohamed Nasheed, Ibrahim Hussain Zaki's case has been sent to the Criminal Court charged with consuming alcohol.
Two parliamentarians from the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP), Kaashidhoo MP Abdulla Jabir and Henveiru-south MP Hamid Abdul Ghafoor, press secretary Mohamed Zuhair, his wife Mariyam Faiz, Zaki's son Hamdhan Zaki and Jadulla Jameel from Addu Atoll Hulhudhoo are six charged in the case.
Police had earlier forwarded Zaki's case for prosecution, but the case was sent back as it lacked his statement.
Zaki, who had flown to India upon release after being arrested over the bust, had returned to Maldives in August. He was the only one not charged in the Hondaidhoo case.
