The Prosecutor General’s Office is charging three expatriates over the murder of a local man in Haa Alif atoll Ihavandhoo island last month.

Police had filed against five expatriate workers in the case of Ismail Umar, 54, who was found murdered with multiple wounds on June 16 inside Ihavandhoo’s ice plant where he had worked as a mechanic and the in-charge. However, Prosecutor General Aishath Bisham confirmed that charges have been forwarded to the Criminal Court against only three of the suspects.

In a press conference held Tuesday, PG Bisham said one expat is being charged with first degree murder with a sharp weapon while the other two are being charged with covering up the murder.

The main suspect in the case is a Bangladeshi national named Sumon Miah who had worked at the ice plant. After his arrest, Miah had confessed to the crime, according to Police.
