Malé, Maldives – Ahmed Shiyam, MP for Naifaru constituency has said that there are so much cases of fraud in the country that school teachers are now forced to go out and catch thieves.

Following protest by Ghaazee School teachers alleging corruption by the school’s senior management, the PPM vice-president tweeted that the teachers of the school had to blow the whistle today and go out to catch the thieves.

“When those responsible for a country are drowned in the drunkenness of treachery, then you will see the whole state fail and disappear. President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih is killing the future of this country.” Shiyam explained.

Teachers of Ghaazee School protested against the failure of the Education Ministry to take any action against the accused corrupt employee. However, the ministry said it would investigate the case of Aishath Shiyaza, the school’s administrator, who is accused of corruption.

The ministry said in a statement that it had conducted an internal audit on the alleged case. An administrative investigation is also being conducted into the expenditure of the funds.

The ministry said that it was now working to take corrective action against all the employees involved.
