Commissioner of Police, Mohamed Hameed states that Police has asked for Interpol assistance to seek the Managing Director of SeaLife Global, Ahmed Moosa Mohamed (Ammaty).

In a tweet by the Commissioner, he stated that that the police have requested Interpol for a Red Notice on Ahmed Moosa Mohamed.

SeaLife Global signed a contract with Housing Development Corporation (HDC) in 2014 to develop 3,000 housing units in the first phase of Hulhumale'. Instead of actually developing the area, they took MVR 50,000 each from 280 individuals and disregarded their complains on the delay of developments and the demand for refunds. Some even paid more than MVR 50,000 as their down payments or booking fees.

Ammaty who fled the country when the Police commenced their investigation into the issue is currently living in Sri-Lanka, according to local news.

The Criminal Court has issued an order to arrest Ammaty.

The case is also under investigation by the Anti-Corruption Commission.
