Govt. will issue comment to documentary: Shihab

Al-Jazeera has requested the Government of Maldives to issue a comment for their documentary on the Maldives, titled Stealing Paradise.

Speaking to Avas, President's Office International Spokesperson Ibrahim Hussain Shihab said the channel had sent an email requesting for comments on various points. The Government had previously said the channel had not sought a comment over the documentary during production.

Shihab did not divulge details of the email but said they were just points requesting for comments, not questions. He said the Government will soon issue a response.

"Stealing Paradise" is set to premier in London on August 30th according to social media posts.
