  1. Most Police officers are Victims of Maumoonism and they still practice those bad habbits and ethics ..

    To improve Policing just fire all top officials who were figure heads during maumoonism.

    Aseeth joins Police Again, he's responsible for Backbone Mahir 2

  2. Adam zahir's maumoonism excuse again....dont u know that all the figure heads during the maumoon era are already fired..we have got new people in all the political posts yet we see little improvement .....the problem i think run deeper than simple Maumoonism..I believe the problem is the Maldivian psyche, we are a very irresponsible, lazy bunch of people, with no job discipline, we dont use common sense and we try to copy the Indian method of excessive red-tape..current maldivian leadership lacks sincerity as well...

  3. the caffe's name is UNDERGROUND its on the same road as Abaage the famous garage. now its has been closed.... the board reads closed for renovation....

  4. Maumoonism is a good term haha. Considering that there are still police who are favoring previous regime either because they are Maumoon's fans or compensated with bribery!

    Stop the corruption within police. Money is not everything.... gangs and parties may pay you but you have to know that you're here to protect citizens not harm us for money....!!!
