Mohamed Hameed (MC Hameed) has been promoted to Deputy Commissioner of Police and appointed Acting Commissioner of Police.
The appointment has been confirmed by President’s Spokesperson, Ibrahim Hoodh.
Hameed was appointed Acting CP after former CP Hamdhoon Rasheed was dismissed from his post this Wednesday.
Hameed was working as Head of Intelligence when he was dismissed from the Maldives Police Service for leaking classified information in 2012.
He had won a wrongful termination suit at the Civil Court, but the ruling was overturned by the High Court which sided with the State.
His first attempt to appeal the verdict was rejected by the Supreme Court, but the court accepted the case when he filed an appeal a second time and ruled in favor of the original Civil Court verdict and overruled the High Court verdict on December 2, 2018.
He was reinstated to the MPS, and appointed ACP and Head of Intelligence on December 4, 2018.
Hameed is the brother-in-law of First Lady Fazna Ahmed.
