Police are involved in drug trafficking in Maldives- Mariya
Opposition Malidivian Democratic Party (MDP)’s only contestant for the party’s presidency, Machangolhi Uthuru MP Mariya Ahmed Didi has accused the police of being involved in drug trafficking in the Maldives.
In a rally of MDP held at Addu City last night, Mariya said that the police are involved in drug trafficking and they are main hub of the illegal drug trade in the country.
Mariya alleged that Police have corrupted a lot of youth who have been rehabilitated by the hard work of the former President Mohamed Nasheed during his rule. She said that it is not surprising that the Police detest the MDP because it was due to the strict drug policies of Nasheed that the country witnessed a drop in the drug trafficking rate.
“The Police are involved in this drug trade. People who buy them tell us very clearly that the Police are behind this trade,” she said.
Meanwhile, in view of the accusation of MDP MP, Police Media Official condemned the accusation of Mariya Ahmed Didi. He said that it is upon the accuser to bring proofs and evidences before accusing the Police of such a grave felony. He said that if she has proof then it is upon her to file the case at the Police integrity Commission.
