Bangladeshi national, MD Alamgiri has apologized to the people of Maldives for having engaged in sexual relations with high-profile male politicians and videotaping the acts.
Sun has obtained a video in which Alamgiri apologizes – also announcing repentance.
In the video, he states that he is a very poor person, who is unaware of right and wrongs. Showing himself repent, he appealed to Maldivian citizens to forgive him.
“I have repented. All Maldivian citizens, please forgive me,” he had said.
Videos and photos of at least three high-profile individuals engaging in sexual relations were leaked on social media over last weekend.
The first was a video which allegedly shows Ahmed Nazim Abdul Sattar, a prominent lawyer and the younger brother of Parliament speaker, former president Mohamed Nasheed, engaging in sexual relations with a Bangladeshi man.
The second was a photo which allegedly shows South Henveiru MP Hussain Shaheem (Andhun Hussain) naked on a bed with a man and a woman.
The third was a video which allegedly shows former journalist Abdulla Naseer Ibrahim engaging in sexual acts with another man.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, a photo of former Nolhivaram MP Mohamed Nasheed (Colonel Nasheed) at the same room see in the videos was leaked on social media.
In a Facebook post addressing the photo, Nasheed said that he went to the room after receiving multiple calls to come for a business meeting there. He went on to state that since this was during the height of Covid, he went as it would have been difficult to meet outdoors at the time.
“Their intention was to involve me that [sexual relations]. I exempted myself from that.”
Furthermore, he revealed that he was blackmailed using those pictures for two lakhs, but he has never paid that money.
At a press conference held on Sunday, Police said that they have identified some suspects involved in cases of blackmail using explicit videos and photos since late March. They stressed that investigations were underway against the suspects.
