Maldives police question former president in fraud probe

Abdulla Yameen questioned for first time over allegations of ‘illicit financial transactions’ while in office. Police in the Maldives have questioned the country’s former President Abdulla Yameen for the first time in an investigation into allegations of engaging in illicit financial transactions while in office.

The development came as hundreds of his supporters and opponents gathered for rival demonstrations in the capital, Male. Yameen, who lost a presidential election in September, told supporters that investigators questioned him over $1.5m deposited in hard currency to a private account he owned prior to the contentious vote.
