Presidential commissions to probe corruption and unresolved murders

Maldives Independent November 18, 2018

Inquiry commissions were instituted by presidential decree hours after Solih took the oath of office.

The ‘Presidential Commission on Corruption and Asset Recovery’ was formed due to the failure of investigative bodies to recover stolen funds and hold former government officials accountable for graft and abuse of power, the decree stated.

The Anti-Corruption Commission is yet to disclose long overdue findings of a probe launched in 2016.

Along with chairman Ahmed Assad, a former state minister of finance, the commission’s members are Gaas Abdulla, Nadheem Ibrahim, Aishath Hana Waheed, and Fathmath Sarira Ali Shareef.
