Maldives Police Service on Monday dismissed Assistant Commissioner Abdul Mannan Yoosuf over a disciplinary issue.
We understand that the dismissal came after some changes were made to the police's Disciplinary Board.
The newest appointment to the board was police spokesperson Ahmed Shifan.
Despite the termination, the police did not reveal any details of Mannan's disciplinary issue.
Mannan had been relieved of his responsibilities since last November, during the tenure of former Commissioner of Police Ahmed Areef. Previously he had served as the head of Police Commissioner Bureau.
