Former DRP Secretary General replaces sacked Felivaru MD

Former Secretary General of the Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party (DRP) and long-serving senior official of the Fisheries Ministry, Hassan Rasheed of G. Sherenade, was appointed Managing Director of Felivaru Fisheries Ltd yesterday, according to local media reports.

Rasheed, currently a member of the Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM), replaces former MD Ali Ahmed, who was sacked from the post after the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) forwarded a corruption case against the senior official for prosecution.

Former Chairman of Felivaru, Mohamed Imthiyaz, a member of the government-aligned Jumhooree Party (JP), was also dismissed from his post on September 25 following allegations of corruption and misappropriation of funds.
