Head of Filadhoo Council in Haa Alif Atoll Mohamed Vijan, who was recently dismissed, has filed a lawsuit against the island council claiming that his dismissal was unlawful.
He told the media that the no-confidence vote taken against him was not conducted accordingly to the law.
The council forwarded a no-c0nfidence motion against Vijan after he told local media some islanders were committing bestiality with goats and that the owner of the goats had complained to the council.
The council dismissed his allegations as an attempt to give the island a bad reputation and filed the no-confidence vote.
The day after media reported on the issue, the goats were found killed.
