Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) has denied using an Indian recruiting firm to hire Indian workers, as claimed by an online news website.
Dhiyares, a local news website, reported on an apparent advert made by an Indian recruitment firm, Afreen International, to hire employees for MTCC, for 36 job positions ranging in salary from USD 1700 to USD 450.
But, in a statement issued on Thursday, MTCC maintained that the local news website’s report is untrue, and that it did not publish any such adverts through a recruitment agency seeking Indian workers.
The company went on to condemn the report published by Dhiyares, calling it “baseless and unfounded accusations.”
MTCC also asked everyone to avoid disseminating fake news that might tarnish the company’s image and reputation.
