Four resort workers suspended for stealing alcohol

Four Maldivian staff at Seenu atoll Villigili resort has said they have been suspended for allegedly stealing bottles of alcohol and beer from a restaurant mini-bar using a tourist’s card, according to Haveeru.

One of the suspended workers said the four, two working at housekeeping and two buggy drivers, were informed that they were suspended indefinitely.

The suspended employee denied that they stole the alcohol. “We didn’t even go to the mini-bar on the night they say it happened,” he said.

He added the accusation has ruined their reputation.

Ahmed Shaaneez, communication manager at the resort, said no employees have been suspended for the alleged offence, but measures had been taken against employees for not turning up for work.
