The Rihiveli island has reopened under a new management while a dispute case over its ownership is ongoing at the High Court.

Rebranded as the “Rihiveli Maldives Resort”, the island welcomed its first guest last Friday after undergoing several renovation projects since its previous management, Save the Dream Pvt Ltd was removed by the owner, Mahaal tours Pvt Ltd.

According to the legal representatives of Save the Dream Maldives Pvt Ltd, a director of Mahaal Tours had embezzled money meant for Save the Dream Maldives Pvt Ltd. They state that except for Mohamed SHiam and Ali Shiham, the rest of the Board of Directors have confirmed by written letter that Mohamed Shiham is not the Managing Director and that the termination of the sub-lease agreement between Mahaal Tours Pvt Ltd and Save the Dream Maldives Pvt Ltd was not legitimate.

They also accuse Director Ali Shiham of embezzling $50,000.00 by funneling $550,000.00 meant for Save the Dream Maldives Pvt Ltd through his Blue Ciel Pvt Ltd, with the beneficiary receiving only $500,000.00.

The legal representatives also note that Mahaal Tours had previously even engaged in sub-lease fraud, referring to Antrac Pvt Ltd vs Mahaal Tours Pvt Ltd. The case has also drawn significant political attention as a Parliamentarian is among the Directors of the new operator.

While the High Court of Maldives is yet to schedule the next hearing, they have confirmed that they would be passing a verdict at the next hearing.
