Police have concluded their investigation into the alleged sexual harassment of Civil Service Commission (CSC) head Mohamed Fahmy, and have forwarded the case to the Prosecutor General’s Office.
Police Spokesperson Sub-Inspector Hassan Haneef told Minivan News that the case was forwarded to the Prosecutor General yesterday afternoon, after closing the investigation into the case.
Haneef said the police requested the PG press charges against Fahmy.
In June, Parliament’s Independent Institutions Committee launched an investigation into alleged harassment of a female staff member by the CSC Chair after a senior research officer at the CSC accused him of sexually harassing her.
Both Fahmy and the victim were summoned to committee after the complaint was lodged in the first week of June.
Fahmy was alleged to have called the female staff member over to him, taken her hand and asked her to stand in front of him so that others in the office could not see, and caressed her stomach saying ”it won’t do for a beautiful single woman like you to get fat.”
According to local media, the woman told her family about the incident, who then called Fahmy. Fahmy then sent her a text message apologising for the incident, reportedly stating, ”I work very closely with everyone. But I have learned my lesson this time.”
Speaking to Minvian News at the time, Fahmy said the allegation was false “and a blatant lie.”
“The female staff member concerned did not win a scholarship to Singapore, and that is why she is doing this in return,” Fahmy said.
The Independent Institutions Oversight Committee of the parliament concluded an investigation into the case and found Fahmy guilty, and asked him to resign within 14 days.
However Fahmy decided not to resign and the committee opted to forward the case to the parliament floor.

sexual predator as head of CSC.
One of the Golhaboa regime thug, always hungry for sex. When the majilis asks to resign after finding guilty this man is crazy trying to satay in office. we must keep our children away from people like this
Is this a self respecting man? usually Golahbow Gang members don't have any shame , It is their hallmark.
Fahmy don't resign!
You must stand up to Women's lib movement in Maldives. A handshake,a hand hol or a pat on the stomach is not sexual. It is closeness and love.o Ofcorse if the lady does not like what you did just say you are sorry and don't do it again. Simple.
this idiot has no shame, resign fahumee. I bet the money is too good for you to resign. The public should teach these types of sex offenders a lesson. dont complain then when someone chops off your bobbit.
