Abdul Mannan Yoosuf has been appointed Deputy Commissioner of Police.

Mannan was serving as Assistant Commissioner of Police when he was dismissed from Maldives Police Service by the Police Disciplinary Board based on the allegation he attempted arrest former President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom and attempted to enforce the Supreme Court’s order of February 1, 2018.

MPS announced the veteran police officer’s appointment in a tweet this Monday evening.
