Maldives Police Service has begun investigating a leaked video that allegedly shows Nazim Sattar, a renowned lawyer and younger brother of Parliament Speaker, former President Mohamed Nasheed, engaging in sexual acts with another man.
The video leaked on social media shows two men engaging in sexual relations. Many allege that one of the men in the video is Nazim Sattar.
Nevertheless, Nazim denies the allegations.
A Police Spokesperson confirmed to Sun that they have begun investigating the alleged video of Nazim Sattar.
“We will take additional actions necessary in the course of the investigation of this case,” the Spokesperson added.
Speaking further, the Spokesperson detailed that they are investigating a blackmail case involving Nazim Sattar that had been filed with the authority by several people.
