State institutions are still being run in a 'darkened room' and such conditions are conducive of corruption, the Transparency Maldives said on Wednesday.
At an event to publicize papers used acquire financial records of prominent state actors, Transparency Maldives' Advocacy Manager Aiman Rasheed said, in response to a question from Haveeru, that for years the State has been run 'in hiding, in secrecy, and behind a veil'. He warned that such a lack of transparency would abet corruption. "We only urge that the State be more transparent" he added "It's hard commit acts of corruption and crime when information on details of public interest are available unabridged to the public". In example, Rasheed stated that the Transparency Maldives had met with resistance when the organisation had approached the Parliament secretariat to acquire information to prepare the aforementioned papers. He added that the organisation had only asked for very basic and general information. "State offices deem information that is not promptly announced to the public to be classified" he continued. He further said that legal inadequacy is not the root of corruption and that heads of state institutions must take an initiative to expel obscurity and make the State's operations more transparent. He said that publicising financial records is an effective method to tackling graft.

Transparency Maldives' Aiman Rasheed explained that his organisation had been looking into the issue of MPs expenses since 2010.

Rasheed said that MPs already received a Rf20,000 (US$1,298) per month allowance in phone, travel, and living expenses, even for those MPs who live in the capital Male'.
"However, all MPs are paid the additional 20,000 regardless of actual expenses," added Rasheed, "We strongly recommend that allowances to MPs must be released based on actual expenditure."
"The 20k committee allowance is in addition to the basic salary and the living/phone/travel allowance. The justification by the Majlis for 20k is to incentivise MPs to attend committee meetings and to help their constituents," said Rasheed.
"Some MPs made public statements that they would distribute the money among their constituents and that the money will go towards constituents' medical bills etc. We at TM think that is plain corruption, abuse of authority and amounts to using state funds for campaigning."
Regarding the decision to award the allowances for March, Rasheed noted that the Majlis's regulations stipulate that MPs must attend 75 percent of their committee's meeting to be eligible for the allowance.
