Work groups contracted by Yacht Tours to work at the resort being developed at G.Dh.Atoll Vatavaru Rehaa have said that they are not being paid by the Yacht Tours. A person from a G.Dh.Gadhoo group working at Vatavaru Rehaa who did not want to reveal his identity, said that groups working at the island are not being paid and that they have not been paid for 2 months.

He said that 400,000 Maldivian Rufiyaa is due even now, and that they should get 700,000 Maldivian Rufiyaa for the works completed. “The management says that they are not able to make the payment because of the world economic recession. Everyday they say they will make the payment tomorrow. But that tomorrow never comes” said another person from an Addu group work at Vatavaru Rehaa.

Yacht Tours Chairman Abdullah Jabir, who is currently serving as GA.Atoll member for the People’s Majlis and is the Deputy Leader of Jumhoory Party, says they don’t have any debts to people who they have to make payments and that if people are not getting their payments they should go to the courts and not towards the press. He also insisted that there are not such problems at Vatavaru Rehaa.
