House of Commons – UK – 26th january 2012 - Link
John Glen (Salisbury) (Con): Will the Leader of the House urgently make time for a debate on judicial reform in the Republic of the Maldives? Although the judiciary is constitutionally independent, sitting judges are underqualified, often corrupt and hostile to the democratically elected regime.
Sir George Young: The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt), is seized of this problem and is in touch with the Maldives President to see whether we can resolve the impasse. The high commission in Colombo is also engaged. We want to help the Maldives to make progress towards democratic reform in the direction that my hon. Friend the Member for Salisbury (John Glen) outlines..
Have you not done enough damage to us? We dont need a debate in House of Commons and another standard British type committee to look into it. You say our Judges are unqualified? Do you even undertand what is going on in the Maldives, or you are doinf one of your fund raisers a favour with this question?
Well I dont know how a person who represents a people can say this:
"I believe that everyone who's working will have enough food if they don't spend the money on other things. There is a choice there that if you spend money on food to start off with.. if you earn anything or you have the minimum wage, you will have some money for food. The question is what other things the money is being spent on."
* Oh, by the way, its not my heading. Its here!
Little wonder that MDP Government has so much allegations on their connections to Salisbury!
