The Human Rights Commission Maldives (HRCM) has condemned the alleged sexual abuse of more than 35 underaged boys by a paedophile, arrested on 13 February.
The commission described the abuse by Hussain Fazeel, 38, as “appalling” and has called for an immediate investigation of this case.
Fazeel was arrested after police found a large number of pictures and videos of him having sex with boys as young as ten, on his hard drive. Addressing press last week, Inspector Ismail Athif said it was highly likely the photos and videos had been used for commercial purposes.

There is an excellent children’s book to help children who it is either known, or suspected, are being sexually abused. It is a faith-based book, but the authors are careful to tell the story itself in a way children can apply their own faith if they choose. They included the faith element because it is the child’s real story, fictionally told, and he relied on faith to help him, and also because many children are silenced by abusers by using faith as a weapon. The book is easy to read, small and discreet in size, and something children will be attracted to and will want to read. The first in a series of four. It has already been added to Resource Lists in many places (not faith based) and is a safe and tasteful tool to help children share. Entitled David’s Sword by David, Lee and Marybeth Elliott, it can be purchased at any bookstore in the U.S. or you may visit David’s Sword Dot Com for an autographed copy.
