The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is yet to make a decision on whether to investigate a complaint against the incumbent president.
An official from the anti-corruption body confirmed that a complaint against President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has been filed there, adding that it is currently reviewing the complaint.
While the official noted the commission is yet to reach a decision on whether to proceed with an investigation, no further details were disclosed.
While the ACC did not even reveal the individual that filed the complaint, Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party (DRP) leader and Kaashidhoo constituency MP Abdulla Jabir had made allegations against the incumbent president at a parliament sitting last month.
The lawmaker also made allegations against Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid and Finance Minister Ibrahim Ameer, as well as former Presidents Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and Abdulla Yameen.
Jabir claims that Solih, Shahid and Ameer were appointed through bribery, and accused them of influencing the People’s Majlis and the courts.
