Maldives Police Service has received criticism after they posted a summon notice of a local man who died in 2021.
Police shared a post online summoning a man named Shakullah Ali to the Police for a case that was reported two years back. The man was summoned in relation to a scam. However, a social media user pointed out that the man had died in June 2021 and attached the funeral prayer announcement as proof.
Police later tweeted that they summoned the deceased individual due to an administrative error. Moreover, Police also issued an apology to the deceased’s family and the public too.
Many users have criticized Police for not validating the whereabouts of the suspect and the integrity of the whole authority amidst the current issue with vigilante justice.
