B. Kamadhoo council president Ahmed Sameer has been arrested on Friday.
An anonymous source from the council told VNews that the council president was arrested at dusk on Friday. He was arrested under a court order after failing to present himself at the court, with repeated summons, the source said.
Sameer was previously arrested twice over drug charges.
While Sameer was arrested in possession of a large amount of drugs during August 2018 in former President Abdulla Yameen’s reign, he was later released and seen active in political events carried out by Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM).
