Maldives Police Service has refuted reports Acting Commissioner of Police, DCP Abdulla Nawaz is about to fire a number of police officers from the service.
A list – purportedly of police officers whose arrests have been ordered went viral in social media circles last Saturday. The list included names of some senior police officers – including assistant police commissioners, chief superintendents and superintendents.
The list also included former CP Ahmed Areef, and his replacement DCP Ahmed Saudhy – who have both been terminated from their posts.
MPS tweeted on Saturday evening that the list was inaccurate.
Please be informed; the Arrest List for MPS Officers, circulating in social media circles, is an incorrect, and false, list.— Maldives Police (@PoliceMv) February 10, 2018
