Mohamed Shafau has been elected as Maldives Media Council (MMC)’s new President.
The former President Shahubaan Fahumy handed in his resignation after pressures faced due to money laundering allegations made against him. Many attempts were made to remove Shahubaan as President of MMC. However, each time Shahubaan scraped through to the safe side but eventually resigned citing that he feels unsafe and faces harassment outdoors when out with his family.
Shafau was elected with 9 out of 15 votes, of the total sitting members of the council.
