Assistant Commissioner and Spokesman of Maldives Police Service (MPS) Ahmed Shifan has credited the release of over 400 prisoners and a lack of return on investments in law enforcement on the rise in theft and robbery.

In a post on X, Shifan admitted to the “unfortunate truth” of a rise in theft and robbery in the capital Male city, attributing it to the release of 434 prisoners from Maldives Correctional Service (MCS) ten months ago by the previous administration.

He also said that unplanned investments in the law enforcement sector has made it more difficult to resolve the issue.

According to statistics from the MPS, there have been almost 3,000 incidents of theft this year so far.
