Former principal of Arabiyya School, Nasrulla Musthafa, has been charged for sending four people to Hajj pilgrimage last year without permission.
An official of the Prosecutor General's Office said on Sunday that Musthafa was changed last week.
He was charged with carrying out an activity that requires a license or permission without obtaining the license or permission, and forgery.
Musthafa resigned in November last year after police began investigating him after four Maldivians who went to Saudi Arabia for Hajj pilgrimage through him, without any link to government-approved companies, had to suffer. State-owned Hajj Corporation had said earlier that the four were later under the company’s care.
Pilgrims can only be taken to Saudi Arabia for Hajj by companies that are selected through a bidding process.
