The Maldives Supreme Court has accepted the case presented by Prosecutor General's Office to amend or overrule High Court's decision on secret witnesses.

High Court's decision regarding secret witnesses came at the sentencing on former Chief Justice Abdulla Saeed.

The appellate court argued circumstances under which secret witness testimonials will be accepted under the provisions of Witness and Evidence Act, which does not specify any clauses regarding secret or discreet witnesses.

The Evidence and Witness Act of Maldives was implemented in September 1976 and remains unamended till date.

Prosecutor General's Office presented its case to Maldives apex court arguing the appellate court's interpretation of the law was absurd.

Maldives Supreme Court accepted the PG Office case on Monday.
