Police have held discussions with the Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) on Monday (September 1) about connecting security cameras at ferry terminals to the police camera network.
Police agreed to assist MTCC with installation of additional cameras and begin the integration process for monitoring ferry terminals, according to police media.
“The Maldives Police Services was represented at the meeting by the Head of the Central Operations Command, Chief Superintendent of Police Ismail Naveen, the Deputy Head of the Central Operations Command, Superintendent of Police, Abdulla Shareef and high ranking members from the Maafannu Galolhu, Villimalé and Hulhumalé Police Stations while the MTCC was represented by their General Manager, Ismail Adhuham and some of their senior members,” police said.
Minivan News journalist Ahmed Rilwan Abdulla, who is believed to have been abducted outside his apartment building in Hulhumalé, was last seen on the Malé-Hulhumalé ferry.
While Rilwan was seen on CCTV footage at the ferry terminal in Malé, there were no security cameras at the ferry terminal in Hulhumalé.
