Malé, Maldives – Newly assigned members of the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday pledged to recover all assets lost in the MMPRC corruption.

MMPRC Corruption involves the unjust appropriation of Maldivian’s assets including sales of multiple lagoons and islands costing the nation MVR 3.4 billion.

Speaking to the press earlier today, the Vice President of ACC Abdul Salam stated that MMPRC corruption is a top priority to the commission and has assigned 12 investigators to the case. VP Salam added that the commission would go as far as amending existing laws to recover the assets lost in the largest case of corruption faced in the Maldives to date.

The commission going forth will prioritize asset recovery in all corruption cases investigated.

The MMPRC corruption case was investigated by the Presidential Commission on Corruption and Asset Recovery.
