The Maldives Police Service is pursuing an Interpol red notice for Ahmed Moosa Mohamed, managing director of a local company implicated in a housing scam that victimised around 300 people.
Police Commissioner Mohamed Hameed announced this in a tweet on Thursday, adding that their efforts to locate Moosa will be made a ‘public red notice’.
The company, Sea Life Global, was assigned by the state-run Housing Development Corporation to construct flats in Hulhumalé.
