Interpol has issued a red notice to locate Managing Director of Sea Life Global Private Limited Mohamed Ahmed Moosa (Ammaty).
The Commissioner of Police Mohamed Hameed has previously revealed that the authorities have requested the Interpol to issue the notice to locate the suspect.
Sea Life Global Private Limited announced and advertised luxury apartments in reclaimed suburbs Hulhumale’, taking payments from interested buyers. However, the apartment building was never constructed, nor were refunds issued to the buyers. Complaints have been filed with the police and the Anti-Corruption Commission seeking refunds and on suspicions that illicit activities were conducted in the implementation of the project.
In the initial phase of the project, Sea Life Global had taken a booking fee of MVR 50,000 from 280 interested buyers, for the projected 300 apartments in the building. This adds up to approximately MVR 14 million.
Cases have been filed against Sea Life Global, Housing Development Corporation (HDC) and the Economic Ministry at the Civil court over the Sea Life Global Complex, due to failure to return the booking fees taken from the buyers.
Victims of the scandal have announced that they will be conducting a peaceful walk calling for justice and to expedite their case.
