Arrival of sniffer dogs delayed

The Indian High Commission in Male’ has told local newspaper Haveeru that there will be a delay in the introduction of sniffer dogs to combat drug trafficking.

Despite a request last June from the Maldives Police Service (MPS), an official from the High Commission said that the MPS had told them that the appropriate environment in which to keep the animals was not yet ready.

Police media official Sub Inspector Hassan Haneef told the paper that the plan will still go ahead with the assistance of the Indian government.

  1. Is the delay in bringing Indian sniffer dogs to the Maldives caused by the lack of a veterinarian in the Maldives?
