    Statement on the Passing of Sir David Amess.

    We are deeply saddened by the devastating attack and subsequent passing of Sir David Amess who served as the Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Maldives for 12 years. He served the Maldives diligently and has always assisted the country in times of need. In particular, during the pandemic, he lobbied for the addition of Maldives to UK Travel Corridors List and later the removal of Maldives from the UK Red List of Countries and Territories. The High Commissioner and the team extend their heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. The Maldives will always remember his services to the country. RIP Sir David.
