The national health insurance provider Aasandha has said that it will pursue legal action against any organizations or individuals that create or perpertuate any false information about it.

The service said in a statement on Monday that there have been reports in local media and social networking platforms that slander the Aasandha service and the state-run hospital in Hulhumalé.

Aasandha denounced such reports as misleading citizens about the nature of its service. Aasandha is referring to an incident on 10th May where a victim of a motorcycle accident had been brought to the hospital for treatment after a severe accident.

Reports claim that the hospital had refused to provide emergency treatment to the accident victim because he had no valid identification and therefore services could not be logged through the insurance service.

The reports further claimed that the police officers who brought the accident victim to the hospital had also been told that he could not be treated without a memo.

The hospital had also released a statement refuting the reports. 24-year-old Mohamed Sobah, whose family having had him transfered to the privately-run Tree Top Hospital, had succumbed to his injuries.
