Public Accounts Committee to dismiss claims against governor

Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee has claimed that a motion of no-confidence against Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA) governor Fazeel Najeeb is baseless.

Haveeru reported that four out of five members of a sub-committee tasked with evaluating the motion had claimed there was no reason for it to go ahead.

President Mohamed Nasheed had sent a letter to the parliament claiming that the MMA was not executing its legal responsibilities, and neither was its governor.

“We didn’t notice anything significant from [the letter] at all to justify a motion of no confidence against him,” a member of the committee told Haveeru.

The committee will review the report from the sub-committee and make a decision next week.
