TV cables worth MVR 50,000 (US$3242) vandalised on Guraidhoo

A group of people have vandalised TV cables worth MVR 50,000 (US$3242) on the island of Guraidhoo in Kaafu Atoll.

An islander who spoke to Minivan News on condition of anonymity told Minivan News the TV cables were set up on the island by the Guraidhoo Youth NGO to provide foreign channels to the islanders. The source alleged the cables were vandalised after members of the NGO refused to comply with a PPM request to join them.

‘’The young people in the NGO are very neutral and they do not want to get involved in to any political activities,’’ he said. ‘’A few days ago they were asked to join the PPM and they refused to do so.’’

He said the NGO had tried to fix the damage but said it was beyond repair.

‘’Today the NGO president will come to the island and when he comes he will bring parts we need to repair it,’’ the source said.
