Maldives: A female tourist was arrested from a non-resort island of Maafusi for wearing a bikini.

A video of the incident has now gone viral on social media where a woman is seen struggling against three police officers, of which one is trying to cover her up with a beach towel.


Maldives Police Service Commissioner Mohamed Hameed even made a public apology after the arrest of the woman.

The woman in the video can be seen shouting in a British accent, "You are sexually assaulting me."

It is not illegal to wear bikinis on the island but it is "strictly prohibited" in all areas other than in holiday resorts.

The UK Government’s travel advice for the Republic of Maldives states that visitors to the Indian Ocean country should be “sensitive to local dress standards when visiting non-resort islands”.

It states that the popular tourist destination is an Islamic country and that tourists should “respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions at all times”.

The country is made up of about 1,200 small islands and is located about 400 miles south-west of Sri Lanka.
