An apex court of Maldives has on Sunday, ordered to freeze former Maldives President Abdulla Yameen’s account, alleged for holding $6.5 million, and is now under investigation for corruption.

According to news reports, Yameen had been interviews by police on Saturday, on the honeymoon island. Yameen has been dogged by the allegations that he had received an amount of $1.5 million as illegal payments, during the time of his failed bid for presidential re-election in the Indian Ocean archipelago nation.

The monetary authority of the country has filed a police complaint against Yameen alleged for illegal donation pay by him, made into a private account in two rows.

The former president, who was defeated in September by present president Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, has strongly denied all the allegations put up against him. Yameen had relied very heavily on China for the financial and political support in the nation Maldives of 340,000 Sunni Muslims with troubling India.
