The remains of the Southern Region Police Station at Hithadhoo

 

The building was set ablaze on the 8th of February 2012. The events surrounding the matter are shady and the actual culprits are far from clear. The police were quick to blame members of the MDP (Maldivian Democratic Party, whose president

Mohamed Nasheed (Anni) had been removed from office the previous day). However many speculate that it may have been an inside job in order to justify the brutal acts carried out by riot police against people protesting the coup. Photos taken on the 5th of December 2012 in Hithadhoo, Seenu.
