Another video shows former Nolhivaram MP Mohamed Nasheed (Colonel Nasheed) with Alamgiri, in the same room where he engaged in sexual relations with Nazim Sattar.
All three men have been barred from travel as the police investigate them for sexual misconduct.
Meanwhile, Alamgiri has made a public apology for having engaged in sexual relations with high-profile male politicians and videotaping the acts.
In a video obtained by Sun, he states that he is a very poor person, who is unaware of right and wrong. Showing himself repent, he appealed to Maldivian citizens to forgive him.
“I have repented. All Maldivian citizens, please forgive me,” he had said.
