Laamu Atoll Council goes to court to reclaim assets

Laamu Atoll Council has filed a case in the Civil Court against the government in a bid to reclaim the council’s assets, after it was requested by the National Office to hand over the assets to other authorities.

President of the Council Ibrahim Naseer told Haveeru that the council had not yet handed over the assets,

“The Decentralisation Act stipulates that the assets, formerly under the Atoll Office, would be transferred to the council,” he claimed.
