The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has not revealed all the recipients of funds embezzled through the state-run Maldives Marketing and Public Relations Corporation (MMPRC), a former auditor general has said.

In a post on his Facebook account, former auditor general Niyaz Ibrahim, who blew the whistle on embezzlement in 2015, said that millions of dollars were funneled to accounts held by former president Ahmed Adeeb.

Niyaz said in his post that those to whom funds were deposited are still in senior positions of government.

The ACC on Thursday publicized its 700-page report on the 2015 investigation into embezzlement out of the MMPRC, which shows that the company’s then managing director had funneled millions out of it and falsified receipts.

It's being shared in social media in the Philippines that the cause of death of the the Filipino couple is cardiac arrest and drowning due to electrocution by undersea cables. Some are now afraid to visit Maldives and people are discouraging to visit.
