The state has filed a case with the High Court seeking an interim injunction against Ahmed Moosa, the owner of Sealife Global, who has been charged with multiple counts of fraud, from flying out of Maldives, after the Criminal Court allowed for this.
Moosa, who is facing multiple charges of fraud in connection to Sealife Global taking money from multiple parties on the pretext of constructing flats, was granted permission by the Criminal Court to fly out of Maldives when he requested to do so, for medical treatment.
An official from the Prosecutor General's Office said the case has been filed in the High Court and a decision on admitting the case is in progress. They added they have also sought an interim order from the High Court to ban him from flying.
Criminal Court gave Moosa a 20 day period to fly out.
Moosa, who had been detained for an extended period over this case, has now been released.
