MPL sacks three over duty-high bags

Maldives Ports Limited (MPL) has sacked three employees who had smuggled out high-duty plastic bags from Male’s commercial harbour.

The black plastic bags in question were recently levied a 400 percent duty, to encourage carriers to opt for environmentally-friendly alternatives.

MPL CEO Hussein Hilmy was quoted as saying that the act was likely assisted by “outside help” who had made “offers” to the employees, and that MPL company would not tolerate corruption.

According to Haveeru, the three employees had tried to alter the settings on a computerised system which regulates port traffic.

Assistant Clearance Officers Mohamed Ahmed and Ahmed Afraad, and Assistant Data Processing Officer Ashiya Mohamed were dismissed from their posts, reports Haveeru.

Two individuals have been arrested over the matter.
