President’s Office Spokesperson, Mohamed Mabrook Azeez said that the names forwarded today will only be disclosed by the Parliament.
Meanwhile, all posts of ACC remain vacant following the resignation of all five members composing the commission, amidst the Parliament’s Independent Institutions Committee’s recommendation of the dismissal of members due to underperformance.

President Solih said that the next phase of investigation carried out by the Asset Recovery Commission and ACC of the infamous MMPRC scandal will be carried out once the new ACC is formed.
