Addu City, Maldives – The Addu Aviation Academy (AAA) Students Union has released a strongly worded statement calling out government and parliament failure in assisting the students in any significant way.

The student union calls out various government authorities and the parliament for their inaction. The Gender Ministry has been informed of the flying school harassing its students 3 months ago with no action being taken. While Education Minister Dr. Ibrahim Hassan has promised that AAA students will be provided the opportunity to continue their education abroad, Transport Minister Aishath Nahula pledged to take action against the school for negligence towards the students, with no action being taken since by either ministry. Similarly, the parliament simply released a report on the problems faced with no follow up action.

In their statement, the AAA Students Union note that the course which was supposed to be completed in 18 months has now been extended to four years. While the issue was brought to the attention of the authorities, no solution has been found, leaving the students and parents in limbo.

In a new development, the AAA currently has no working planes, with all planes being grounded with no information being provided to the students. The students learnt this information through an outside source from Civil Aviation. The students consider this to be an addition to the series of transgressions against them by the school.

The AAA Students Union condemns the relevant authorities for not taking proper action or finding any solution to the problems faced, while students and parents go through innumerable losses.
