A system for exchanging terrorism-related intelligence amongst Maldives intelligence entities has been established, as mandated by the Anti-Terrorism Act, Home Minister Imran Abdulla revealed Tuesday.
Minister Imran stated in a tweet that numerous state institutions were linked on Tuesday via an intelligence sharing network designed to share information on terrorist operations.
He pointed out that the system was put in place with overwhelming approval from intelligence agencies.
In addition to establishing the information-sharing mechanism, the home minister noted that the government has established a structure to ensure safety and immediate action, and that it is now working to improve anti-terrorism responses across institutions.
In its report on the May 6 bombing, the People’s Majlis Security Services Committee advised the home ministry to expedite the implementation of a terrorism-related intelligence exchange system.
