Former Commissioner of Police Ahmed Areef’s passport has been confiscated.
VNews understands Areef’s passport was confiscated during this week, although the reason for it is not yet known.
Maldives Immigration said since it is an individuals' personal matter, they would not divulge any information regarding it.
Areef was dismissed from the post while he was working to release nine political prisoners according to the Supreme Court’s ruling on February 1, 2018.
Regarding the dismissal, Attorney General Mohamed Anil said President Yameen attempted to call Areef on the night of the Supreme Court order, but the latter did not respond to the calls, due to which he was dismissed for lack of cooperation.
