The government has ordered the dismissal of State Trading Organization (STO)’s Managing Director, Hussain Amru.
The order was sent to the Privatization and Corporatization Board of Maldives by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih on Sunday.
RaajjeMV has confirmed the decision from the President’s Office. As such, Spokesperson at the President’s Office, Miuvan Mohamed revealed that the government will always be making periodic alterations and changes to the management and functioning of state institutions and companies.
The decision to dismiss Amru, who is currently the MD and CEO of STO, is one of these changes, added Miuvan.
With these changes to STO’s management, made by the government, Amru will be sacked from these two posts and as a member of the company’s board.
The decision to sack Amru comes at a time he has been openly vocal against President Solih, who is running for this year’s presidential election through the main-ruling Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP).
Many have been calling for the removal of anti-government officials working at senior positions of government offices and state institutions, immediately.
