Government pledges to investigate attack on 3 November 1988

The President’s Office has pledged to investigate the attack on 3 November 1988 and “find the real organisers” behind the attempted coup.

It is now believed that the two men convicted, Abdulla Luthfee and Ahmed Nasir, were not key figures in the attack, reports Miadhu.

The two men were placed under house arrest last year, but there have been recent reports of Nasir being seen in Malé.

President’s office Press Secretary Mohamed Zuhair told Haveeru that the men are to put be under house arrest and the Ministry of Home Affairs has been notified.
