Three additional members have been appointed to the independent committee set up to advise the Ministry of Housing, Land and Urban Development on issues pertaining to land plots and flats allocated during the previous government.

The committee, tasked with advising the Housing Ministry on problems pertaining to land and flats issued under the "Binveriya" and "Gedhoruveriya" housing schemes, was formed with the appointment of five independent members on 14 May.

At the time, Aneesa Ahmed had been appointed as chair of the Flat Committee. However, she resigned from her position citing health concerns shortly after her appointment on 24 May.

The Ministry of Housing has today announced the appointment of three new members to the Flat Committee following the recommendations of President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu.

With that, the independent committee will now consist of seven members.

Committee Members

1. Aminath Eanas (Chair)

2. Abdul Azeez Yoosuf (Vice Chair)

3. Mohamed Mauroof Jameel

4. Ahmed Ali Manik

5. Mariyam Fizaana Rasheed

6. Fathimath Saeed

7. Aminath Shaairaa

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) had earlier stopped the allocation of land and flats after a list of recipients leaked with just two days left until the end of former president Ibrahim Mohamed Solih's administration.

After a two-month long investigation, the ACC revealed that out of 4,000 recipients of flats reviewed, 60% were people who did not meet the eligibility criteria. Of the remaining valid forms, only 20.7% did not have any further issues, leaving 19.7% of forms representing people who did meet the requirements but had inconsistencies in the information provided.

With regards to the flats, incumbent president Dr. Mohamed Muizzu stated the government's decision to review the list of applicants for flats through an independent committee. The committee is to be made up of individuals that the people can place their trust in, which is an initiative by the government to prove that land and flats are not being allocated arbitrarily for corrupt gain.
