Maldives Police Services have revealed that they have commenced investigations in to allegations of sexual abuse of 2 daughters by the father.

At the Thursday Police media briefing held at Shaheed Hussain Adam Building, Head of Family and Child Protection Unit of Maldives Police Services Inspector Mirufath Faiz said the case of 68 year old Hussain Adam of White Rose of Hdh Kulhudhufushi sexually abusing his own daughters by intimidation was reported to Laamu Fonadhoo Police Station on 23 April.

Inspector Mirufath also revealed that during the course of the investigations the accused had confessed to sexually abusing his 2 daughters and despite repeated complaints of sexual assaults from the daughters, the mother had ignored the matter.

“Investigations reveal that Hussain Adam regularly tortured and intimidated the mother and the daughters and as a result of such intimidation and pain, the family was forced to accept and tolerate such evil action. The mother had agreed to keep the door of their room open while she and her daughters change clothes because of fear. He has married several times and we are not clear on how many children he has, but according to information he has children all over the country” the Inspector said.

According to Inspector Mirufath, Hussain Adam has been sexually abusing his 2 daughters since they were five year olds. She informed that Hussain Adam’s daughters are now 13 and 16 years and that so far no attempt was made to provide them with any education.
