. It is my pleasure to introduce myself as a MALDIVIAN who was jailed & banished during president 30 years of Gayyoom's dictatorship. I was behind bars with PLOTE members in MALDVIVES during their investigation with Indian Military & Maldives Armed forces NSS. In 26th July 1989 I was arrest because of an allegation claimed by Notational Security Services (NSS) staff by midnight about 1 O’clock morning with one of class mate Mr. MOHAMED ZAHIR.
I was taken to NSS head quarters kept in plastic chair for without sleep & body wash for 05 days & 05 nights. Facing my face towards a wall. This is the only place where I have experienced in my life how BADLY a human being can approach to a human during investigation carried by NSS ELITE interrogators for political prisoners namely officer Mr.WAAWU LHAHUTHTHU.
Suddenly the lovely feeling & caring of my innocent MUM was triggered on my neuron, heart & mind. Since a young staff sergeant bleguarded at me by using filthy languages about my MUM & me. That maybe a reason why I have got EGO centric challenging tolerance not to sign & agree me on my statement for their claim.
The officer claims were that I have discussed about 3rd Nov 1988 hostage crises on International waters. cording to them there was a report with evidence that I have mentioned President Maumoon Abdull Gayyoom has responsible for those died onboard MV / PROGRESS LIGHT ( Cargo Ship won by Maldives National Ship Management) since he has allowed Indian Military to fire gunshot as head of Maldives armed forces NSS.
After 5 days & 5 nights without my body wash & sleep's I was taken to a remote Island Jailed where PLOTE group leaders & members who was capture by Indian Military. The mentioned GAAMAADHOO Jail Island was secured by Indian military force & management controlled by NSS officers under regulate by Prisons Division. What happens inside jailed was fully controlled by NSS. This is the place where Indian Military was camped & based with military equipments.
During my captivity in Gaamaadhoo Jail several times I have taken to Maldives Defense Ministry & escorted me to POLICE COURT & finally I was sentenced to banish to Remote Island for 03 months as a POLITICAL PRISONER. According to judge I was guilty since NSS officer has given evidence. I have rejected there statement with allegation. My state on the issue was reveal by POLICE COURT JUDGE. I am Adam Rasheed Ahmed has captured on 26th Jul 1989 on allegation about mentioned clime & It was not true & I am fully disagree on the officers statement. This is how my statement was given.
After this incidence I was after releasing from my confinement with assistance my colleague we have registered a magazine call "MANTHIRI"(king on chessboard) the first politically motivated monthly magazine. The first issue was unable to print in MALDIVES because of fear that Gayyoom government may take hard action about any printers or publisher who contributes it printing the magazine. During those days Maldives government is writing articles about held SAARC summit in MALDIVES but BIG BROTHER is showing some stiffness to held the summit there. The mentioned writer is was a Sri Lankan well-known editor who was based in Min. of Information in MALDIVES. His son Mr.C. Gunasekara has assisted us print this in Colombo. After completion of printing it has block by Maldivian government supported by MALDIVES HIGH COMMISION in Colombo. I went Colombo & met all relevant diplomats including Maldives SAARC ambassador who was based in Colombo Mr.Ahmed Abdulla. After one week hard work in Colombo I got knew that commercial possibilities has been closed because Maldives High commission influence on this on their diplomatic & local strong networking. The final conclusion was I have got assistance from a Sri Lankan government stack holder personal advisor to the president & proceeded to departure to MALDIVES by Air Lanka as VIP via first class with more than a 1000 copies of printed magazine. I was accompanied by Maldivian Diplomat Mr.Ibrahim Hussain onboard & explained him detail about what has happen to work in Colombo with some level after 1hrs 10 mnts journey soon after my immigration Maldives custom intelligence has captures all printed materials send to bonded ware house & I have taken to NSS custardy & kept in a VIP ROOM. I was in local bed called FAITH JEHI EDHU (locally made COT) for more than 15 days the only interrogator who is lice with me is tyrant character for reformists (Gayyoom's government ex-commissioner of police ADAM ZAHIR). After 15 days I was send to house arrest for more than 45 days during my house arrest again as political prisoner I have got a valuable unpolished JAM. The only duplicated copy of a secret telephone conservation between Gayyoom's brother in law ex Defense Minister Mr.Iliyas Ibrahim (majority Maldivian describe him as a most powerful tyrant character & the man behind the Gayyoom's espionage, blasphemous touchier machineries). I was fully aware & mentally prepare to move to jail again according to my observation about gayyoom's infamous local intelligence. One fine morning NSS military scud landed on my door step & my grand-Ma & family was panic & shocked because of NSS approach on more than 4 or five military jeep was arrive with dozen of camouflage uniform team headed by a educated young famous commando Mr.Latheef & team has check my home with some electronic modern military gadgets about 30 mints nothing was appeared & collected except about 50 cassette tape of both Hindhi & English. The only question & on my mind was about my young brother Mr.Ibrahim Rasheed who was in a political banishment in a remote Island. He sent me always audio letters & we both exchange & discuss about political issues in Maldives which is also strictly prohibited during that time in Maldives especially political prisoners such as me & my young brother has to communicate letters via Prison Division. The mentioned those audio cassettes have been mixed up with my cassette tapes unfortunate NSS has taken those audio tapes with them. I was kept in local jailed & military officers extremely busy with checking those audios with my presence. The trouble has started one officer has triggered with one audio latter my young brother was laggard to a former defense Minister Hon.Illiyas Ibrahim. There task was to check whether I have got mentioned tele conversation unfortunately they came up with this issue immediately I have taken to remote military jail called DHOONIDHOO (in local it mean BIRD TUNGUE) which is fully controlled & manage by NSS military. After heavy investigation with TOP OFFICERS in country I reject all there question & allegation about that leak tele conversation audio latter of my young bro. the case end up with trading our MAGAZINE publisher & Editor has been captures about the mentioned audio tape. MANTHIRI MAGAZINE was baned the owner of Mr.ILLIYAS HUSSAIN jailed. Mr.IBRAHIM RASHEED head of Editorial board has been banished (nick name HOARA) a MARDONA & Roberto Bergio nature of profassion related skilled Maldivian language writer) Hora attemted to release me from jail by taken him lot of clame by NSS finally got extra sentences due to protect me during investigation.Presently Mr.IBRAHIM RASHEED is one the closest PA for President Mohmed Nasheed's government & Mr.Iliyas Hussain present Controller of Immigration contrubueted huge involement to ROAD TO DEMOCRAY with Hon.President Mohmed Nasheed.
