About us

The Maldives Independent, formerly Minivan News, has been at the forefront of the Maldives’ push towards democracy over the past decade.

We strive to set a standard for editorial independence and integrity, provide a forum for free speech and debate, and most importantly continue asking questions of those who govern on behalf of the Maldivian people.
