The Maldives Monetary Authority (MMA) has denied any knowledge of funds being raised on the islands to finance terrorist activities abroad – firmly rejecting the findings of a report published by the US department of state last month.
The report claims the Maldivian authorities were aware of funds being raised for this purpose, and cites reports – collected by the central bank – that highlight how criminal proceeds on the islands "come mainly from domestic sources".
The MMA has taken issue with
