FSM silent on allegations of destroying documents

Screen grab from the video which appears to show the disposal of FSM's documents.

Fuel Supplies Maldives (FSM) has chosen to remain silent on the allegations accusing the company of destroying a large sum of documents in conjunction with the transitional phase.

Sun’s efforts to obtain a comment from FSM’s Managing Director Mohamed Gasam regarding the allegations had been saucerful, as he had not answered any of the phone calls.

Meanwhile, FSM’s media department has not commented on the allegations so far either.

A video viral on social media shows FSM staff destroying a large sum of documents via a cement grinding machine.

Many, on social media, expressing concern over the destruction of documents amid the transitional phase, have called for an investigation. They have also raised questions as to why such a large sum of documents needed to be destroyed if the company’s operations had been in line with the stipulated laws and regulations.

The video was shot by FSM’s technician Ahmed Anees. He has been suspended after the video was made public.

Anees, confirming it was him who shot the video, told Sun he shot the video over suspicions surrounding the destruction of the documents in such a manner during the transitional phase. However, he said the video was publicized on social media by a friend, who he shared the video with.
