The Maldives’ government has asked citizens to report information regarding allegations of corruption and abuse of power during the tenure of the strongman leader defeated in elections last year.
The request, in a statement from the president’s office on Wednesday, came a day after police questioned former President Yameen Abdul Gayoom over alleged illegal financial transactions for a third time.
The statement said information on cases of corruption and abuse of power within state institutions from Jan. 1, 2012, to Nov. 17, 2018, could be reported via written submission to the Presidential Commission on Corruption and Asset Recovery. Yameen was president for most of that period. Submissions should be made before Feb. 24.
