Hulhumalé, Maldives – Prosecutor General (PG) Hussain Shameem has requested Police to investigate the allegations made against Tree Top Hospital management, regarding the deportation of a male foreign nurse who sexually assaulted a boy that was admitted in the hospital.

Shameem stated this as the case was filed, due to lack of evidence as the case was reported after the alleged sex offender was sent back to his country. Even though it was reported by Tree Top, it was after the nurse was out of Maldives.

While the public has outraged over the case, Shameem added that even though the case was filed, Tree Top Hospital management will be thoroughly investigated by the police.

This was reported last January to the Police. The Police stated that the case was filed due to the accused not being in Maldives, and because there was no way to bring him back to Maldives. Police further added that the person cannot return to Maldives even if he wanted to as he had been blacklisted by Maldives Immigration.
