Male', Maldives, Protest Continues for 13th night in a row

Since the Maldives Criminal Court Chief Judge Abdulla Mohamed's unlawful arrest by the Maldives National Defense force on 16th of January 2012, the Maldivian people have been protesting in the Capital Male'. 

Although the Prosecutor General, Supreme Court Chief Judge and the High Court have ordered his release he remains held in solitary confinment in a Military base, with Military claiming they arrested Abdulla on President Mohamed Nasheed's order and will only release him on the President's order. Three times the Military also has ignored the summons issued by the Supreme Court to present Judge Abdulla before the Court.

Similarly the United Nation’s Human Rights Commission called on the Maldivian Government to release Judge Abdulla or charge him according to the laws of Maldives.

So far, no action has been taken by the Government of Maldives to respect the United Nations Human Rights Commission’s statement.
