Malé, Maldives – Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation appeals to the High Court against the Civil Court’s decision to cancel the registration of illegally registered road vehicles.

The Transport Ministry has decided to cancel the registration of about 200 vehicles for illegal registration. However, the Civil Court issued an interim order to stay the decision to cancel the registration of 87 of the vehicles.

The court issued the order after the owners of some of the vehicles filed a petition in the Civil Court. High Court has not yet decided on the appeal.

The Transport Ministry said it would continue to cancel the vehicle’s registration despite an order issued by the Civil Court.
