An agreement signed by the previous government to acquire monitor and control (monicon) tags has been nullified following concerns.

RaajjeMV understands that the agreement was nullified following concerns over how it was drafted as well as implemented.

The deal was signed with Stalwart Maldives Private Limited in 2015, by then Home Minister Umar Naseer. As per the agreement, the company is required to provide the government with electronic tags, as well as control them.

Incumbent Home Minister Imran Abdulla recently revealed that they were out of electronic tags.

Imran's predecessor Umar mocked him over this revelation, saying it made him laugh.

Former President Abdulla Yameen appointed Umar as home minister in December 2015. He resigned in June 2016, after the president stripped him of the authority to issue surveillance orders.

Umar said that by the time he left office, that all necessary equipment such as tags and jammers were provided and accused the government of selling the state’s amenities.
