Police Spokesperson Lance Corporal Abdul Majeed Moosa has said that police have arrested two persons in Thinadhoo after it was reported that a group had recorded nude footage of a group of visiting athletics officials.
Moosa said that the visiting officials went to the island to attend ‘Makita Inter Atoll Junior Athletics Championship’ held on Thinadhoo.
”We can’t give more information as the investigation is ongoing,” he said.
Local newspaper ‘Haveeru’ reported that the two nude videos were of two foreign officials.
The paper reported that sources familiar with the case has said that the videos were recorded inside the bathroom secretly and some of the videos have been leaked.
The incident has caused the other members of the officials team to be concerned that their videos might also have been recorded secretly.
All the officials stayed in one house and there were two toilets in that house which both males and females in the team used during their stay in Thinadhoo.
Recently police arrested 14 persons for recording nude videos and pictures of senior government officials through facebook.
Police have not yet provided further information of the case.
