Resort tycoon, Jumhoree Party (JP) Leader and MP, Judicial Services Commission (JSC) member and owner of VTV Gasim Ibrahim has acquired the assets of Miadhu News, the Maldives’ second oldest newspaper.

This does sound alarming!
The Resort tycoon, timber trading tycoon and one of the wealthiest family in the Maldives, Fili Nasheed is planning to buy Haveery News and talks are going on.
But Zahir Hussain is demanding over a 2 million dollars and that is why Fili Nasheed had not yet closed the deal.
Thanks. Now I know what not to read.
Baqee Qasim, is buying the whole media of the Maldives, so he can spread his selfish greed.
