ACC appeals court ruling on Nexbis case

The Anti-Corruption Commission has appealed the Civil Court’s ruling against the commission’s decision to terminate border control system contracted to Malaysia’s Nexbis Limited in November 2010.

The court ruled in January 2011, that ACC does not have the legal authority to order the Department of Immigration and Emigration to terminate the project agreement.

ACC filed a court case against the Rf500 million (US$39 million) Nexbis system in November 2011, two days after cabinet decided to resume the project. The decision contradicted ACC’s  earlier command to terminate the existing agreement with Nexbis and re-tender the project with the cabinet’s consent.

In 2010, the ACC announced it had received “a serious complaint” regarding “technical details” of the bid, and issued an injunction pending an investigation into the agreement citing “instances and opportunities” where corruption may have occurred.

After the investigation, the commission deemed the procedure of awarding the project to Nexbis was corrupt, and ordered the Immigration Department to terminate the project.

    Its sad to hear still Maldives Anti Commision try to Stop projects that have Value and need to Maldives. Since we had seen some Maldivian sites about this case and it is politically motivated project which ACC inside also have intrest to give some other company which they had used a Former immigration Baaqee shahid advice and papers instant their own investigation now they are trying to use AG Azima Backup to help them terminate this agreement and AG Azima had paid from Goverment money to Singapore Law firm to get help or advice to terminate this agreement.

    It is a Political game which Haveeru media and VTV and DHiTV use negative campaign for those people who wants to cancel the bid which Sri Lankan informatics gave backup to immigration deputy minister Adam Naseer and most courrpt 3 years Assistant controller Ibrahim Waheed to spread rumors in media and even they had mention thy had connection with ACC with case and ACC Muawiz was involved in this game.

    Anti courrption board is courrpt which they never investigate why these people are crazy to stop this project and why ACC intrest only particular company name or brand to destroy.

    Independent Commision using help from Baaqee shahid in civil court now in HCourt Azima is this a independent Commision

    Minivan News never cover about the truth about the project and about Controller Shahid Leak documents in Rajjemiadhu, Its clear mention Controller Abdulla Shahid and ACC Muawiz is had done a deal to give the project without tender to the some companies that loose in the Bid,

    Even Shahid does not have right to communicate any parties that were loose, that means a courrption , but to investigate the courrption is Shahid best freind ACC Muawiz, which he was backup by some Company

    Fact of the matter is these days is ACC, the media and the opposition has made laymen like you believe that everybody is corrupt except yourself.

    What ACC should have done responsibly is investigate the matter, report their findings to prosecutor general and let the PG prosecute nexbis or immigration and get judiciary to pass a judgement on the case if guilty punish them as per the law.

    But ACC is also just speculating without due process. where do you draw the line on “corruption ah magi fahi vaa gothah koffa oi kammeh”

    when we are born to this world, we also come with the tools to do a lot of bad things, not only corruption but also adultery.

    so the mere fact we have the tools does not mean we would use it in a bad way.

    the point is, ACC should have followed its due process, they failed to do it and went out of their way to create a show for the public trying to prove their own innocence

    “corruption ah magi fahi vaa gothah koffa oi kammeh”??
    That’s means whatever project they wants they can stop and terminate, and politically very powerful which means any person they are against they can do whatever they wants.
