Deported expatriate returns to Maldives

An expatriate man who was deported from the Maldives after police discovered he was running a brothel has been caught again for the same crime, Miadhu reports.

Cicera Kumar Fernando, 32, returned to the Maldives using a forged passport, according to Inspector Hamdhoo Rasheed, head of the police force’s serious and organised crime unit.

Fernando was using M. Mariyaadhu, a guesthouse in Male’, as a front for a brothel.

Police also arrested an expatriate woman, 22-year-old Sharmila Prasaadini Gregory and two locals.
