Minister Ihsan Calls for Unwavering Police Action Against Bribery and Threats

Minister for Civil Security and Finance, Captain (retd) Ali Ihusaan, underscored the critical need for police officers to carry out their duties impartially, without being influenced by bribery or threats. He made these remarks at the valedictory function of the 36th Basic Training Course of Police, held in Addu City last night.
Addressing the newly graduated officers, Minister Ihusaan highlighted two significant issues facing the nation: the drug menace and the deportation of illegal immigrants. "Various people are threatening the police and offering bribes to stop the police from trying to stop them," he said, acknowledging the challenges faced by law enforcement.
Despite these challenges, Minister Ihusaan reaffirmed his confidence in the police force's ability to perform their duties effectively. He stressed that the training and the oath taken by police personnel are designed to instill a strong sense of duty and resilience, enabling them to resist corruption and intimidation.
The event, which celebrated the graduation of the 36th Police Basic Training Course, was attended by senior police officers and other dignitaries. Minister Ihusaan commended the new graduates and urged them to uphold the highest standards of integrity and commitment in their service to the nation.
