Maldives police contemplate stationing officers in Sri Lanka, India

Police Commissioner Abdulla Riyaz has revealed plans are being discussed to station Maldivian officers in Sri Lanka and India from next year as part of efforts to curb the trafficking of illicit drugs into the country.

In an interview with Haveeru, Commissioner Riyaz said that considering the suspected heavy involvement of foreigners smuggling drugs into the Maldives, officers from the country may need to be based at Maldivian embassies in several neighbouring countries to try and curb the illegal trade.

Riyaz also spoke of the need to introduce rehabilitation programs in the country’s prisons.
