The Prosecutor General’s Office has decided to file nine more charges against jailed former Vice President Ahmed Adheeb and 25 additional charges against Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC)’s former Managing Director Abdulla Ziyath.

Mihaaru understands that all the charges are related to the MMPRC scandal in 2015, the largest case of corruption in the history of the Maldives, where MVR 1.2 billion worth of state funds received as acquisition costs via island leases for resort development had been embezzled through the corporation.
