  • Lawyer for Maldives VP comments on impeachment

    (5 Nov 2015) A lawyer for the Maldives vice president said on Thursday that his client was "framed" over allegations he planned to kill the country's president. Hussain Shameem said Vice President Ahmed Adeeb assured him he would be found innocent if an impartial investigation was conducted. Earlier in the day, the People's Majlis, the Maldives' Parliament, voted overwhelmingly to impeach Adeeb, who will be charged with terrorism for plotting to kill the president, a minister said. Ahmed Adeeb is the second vice president to be impeached in three months. He was arrested for allegedly planning to kill President Yameen Abdul Gayoom in an explosion on his speedboat on 28 September. Adeeb has denied involvement in the blast. The impeachment motion received 61 votes in favour and none ...

  • Lawyers seek sanctions in bid to free jailed ex-president of Maldives

    Lawyers working to release the jailed former president of the Maldives are seeking travel bans and targeted sanctions against top Maldivian officials as they step up efforts to free the islands' first democratically elected leader. Mohamed Nasheed was ousted in 2012 for ordering the arrest of a judge and is serving a 13-year jail term after a rapid trial in March. The United States and human rights groups are among those to have said President Abdullah Yameen's government failed to follow due process and that the case against Nasheed was politically motivated. A report from the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) which finished examining the issue in September called for Nasheed's immediate release but Yameen's administration said last week that it rejected the de...

But her visit to the Maldives this week to meet with Mohamed Nasheed, the country's former president currently imprisoned in a Maafushi jail, poses its own risks. "Amal is in a pretty rough spot right now in the Maldives," says a source close to the London-based barrister, who is working pro bono to defend the Maldives' first democratically elected president. "President Nasheed is a really good, forward-thinking man, in a really dangerous situation, and Amal being there is really tricky and really dangerous."

Almost all opposition leaders are either in jail or in exile, fearing arrest and imprisonment if they return. They include Sheikh Imran Abdulla, the leader of Adhaalath Party, who has been detained since May. He is at risk of unfair trial. What you could do:Tweet to the President of Maldives - @presidencymv release Mohamed Nasheed. Release or ensure fair trials for other political opponents #StopUnfairTrials Background: In 2015, a series of arrests and imprisonments of high-profile political opponents in the Maldives has drawn criticism from the international community. In the UPR of the Maldives this year, several states called for judicial accountability in the country, citing serious irregularities within national judicial processes that resulted in violations of the right to a fair trial. The Maldives government maintains that due process has been followed in all cases of arrests and imprisonments in the Maldives. The panelists will discuss the ongoing situation and ways forward to ensure that the right to a fair trial is guaranteed and that judicial accountability is enforced.

Fighting for Freedom: Calling for the Release of Imprisoned Former Maldives President Nasheed Mohamed April 30, 2015 10:00 AM Location: Murrow Room Laila Ali, Wife of Imprisoned Former President, to Appear With International Lawyers Amal Clooney and Jared Genser Washington, DC – Laila Ali, wife of imprisoned former President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed, will speak at a National Press Club Newsmakers news conference on Thursday, April 30, and make public a filing that day to the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention urging it to find that Nasheed is being held in violation of international law. After many years as a dissident journalist, prisoner of conscience, and democracy activist, Mohamed Nasheed became the first democratically-elected President of the Maldives in 2008. As President, Nasheed used his position to strengthen democratic institutions in the Maldives, and as a platform to advocate for increased awareness of and action against global warming. He made global headlines by staging an underwater cabinet meeting, to highlight his low-lying country’s vulnerability to rising sea levels. He also set an example by outlining policy to make the Maldives carbon-neutral, transitioning from oil to solar power. His environmental efforts were chronicled in the acclaimed documentary The Island President. He was forced to resign in 2012, under the threat of personal violence against him in a coup d’etat. Despite winning a plurality of the vote in the country’s 2013 elections, the Supreme Court annulled the results, returning to power the same family which had ruled the Maldives for decades. Nasheed was convicted and sentenced to 13 years in prison on “terrorism” charges in March, stemming from the alleged wrongful detention of a judge by the Maldivian military while he was president. Amnesty International condemned the “sham trial,” and said the verdict was a “travesty of justice.” A small island nation in the Indian Ocean most known for tourism, the Maldives also holds great strategic economic and military importance because it straddles international shipping lanes. The country has traditionally been a key ally of India, but the current government has a strong relationship with China. China is reportedly seeking to build a naval base there to counterbalance India’s control of the Indian Ocean and the U.S. military presence in Diego Garcia. Nasheed, who attended university in the United Kingdom, is a lifelong advocate for freedom, democracy and human rights. Examining the case with Ali will be her international lawyers Amal Clooney and Jared Genser. This NPC Newsmakers news conference is scheduled for Thursday, April 30 at 10 a.m. in the club’s Murrow Room, on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building, 529 14th St. NW, Washington DC 20045.

In 2008, Mohamed Nasheed became the first democratically elected president in the history of the island nation of the Maldives. His presidency was marked first by his heroic efforts to save his country from the ravages of rising sea-levels resulting from climate change, as captured in the critically acclaimed documentary film The Island President (2011). Then, afraid that he would expose the rampant corruption on their watch, powerful players in the previous regime conspired to force him out of presidency and tortured and persecuted him. With his health deteriorating, he managed to find exile in London with the help from international lawyers Jared Genser, Amal Clooney, and Ben Emmerson. He continues his tireless efforts to promote democracy in his homeland and is now poised to pursue presidency again in his beloved homeland. Featuring President Mohamed Nasheed, his lawyer Jared Genser, and Professor Rebecca Hardin of the UM School of Natural Resources and moderated by DHRC Director Kiyoteru Tsutsui, the Donia Human Rights Center Panel will examine how global challenges of climate change, environmental justice, human rights, and democracy converged in the Maldives and President Nasheed, and explore possible ways forward as the next presidential election in the Maldives looms in 2018.

Mohamed Anil, Maldives Attorney General, declaring state of emergency Lawyer for Maldives VP comments on impeachment 4010828 AP TELEVISION Male - 5 November 2015 ++NIGHT SHOTS++ ++4:3++ 5. Hussain Shameem, lawyer for the Maldives Vice President Ahmed Adeeb, getting off boat STORYLINE: On November 2nd 2015 the military in the Maldives found and deactivated an explosive device near the president's official residence, officials said. The discovery came a month after an explosion occurred on President Yameen Abdul Gayoom's boat, injuring his wife, an aide and a bodyguard. The improvised explosive device was in a parked vehicle near the president's official residence, officials said. Gayoom does not live at the residence but uses it frequently for meetings. *** The president of the Maldives declared a state of emergency on November 4th, sharply curtailing key rights of citizens for 30 days, following an explosion on his speedboat and the discoveries of a homemade bomb near his residence and a weapons cache. Attorney General Mohamed Anil said President Yameen Abdul Gayoom made the decision to safeguard public safety. Under the state of emergency, the military and police are able to enter and search homes without warrants and can make arrests virtually at will. Citizens are forbidden to hold protests or labour strikes or to travel between the country's many islands. The country has been tense since a September 28th blast on the president's speedboat and a subsequent series of arrests of people, including Vice President Ahmed Adeeb, on suspicion of involvement in the explosion. November 4th's declaration effectively thwarts plans by the main opposition Maldivian Democratic Party to hold a mass rally on November 6th demanding the release of its jailed leader, former President Mohamed Nasheed. It is customary for people to travel from outer islands to participate in protests in the capital, Male. Nasheed, the country's first democratically elected leader, resigned following public protests against his decision to order the arrest of a top judge in 2012. In 2013, Gayoom defeated Nasheed in a disputed election in which the Supreme Court annulled the results of the first round, which Nasheed was leading, and delayed a revote until Gayoom was able to negotiate a winning coalition with other parties. Nasheed is now serving a 13-year prison sentence under a terrorism law for his role in arresting the judge. His trial was widely criticized for its apparent lack of due process. *** A lawyer for the Maldives vice president said on November 5th that his client was "framed" over allegations he planned to kill the country's president. Hussain Shameem said Vice President Ahmed Adeeb assured him he would be found innocent if an impartial investigation was conducted. Earlier in the day, the People's Majlis, the Maldives' Parliament, voted overwhelmingly to impeach Adeeb, who will be charged with terrorism for plotting to kill the president, a minister said. Ahmed Adeeb is the second vice president to be impeached in three months.

Lawyers working to release the jailed former president of the Maldives are seeking travel bans and targeted sanctions against top Maldivian officials as they step up efforts to free the islands' first democratically elected leader. Mohamed Nasheed was ousted in 2012 for ordering the arrest of a judge and is serving a 13-year jail term after a rapid trial in March. The United States and human rights groups are among those to have said President Abdullah Yameen's government failed to follow due process and that the case against Nasheed was politically motivated. A report from the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) which finished examining the issue in September called for Nasheed's immediate release but Yameen's administration said last week that it rejected the decision. Jared Genser, working with international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, said Nasheed's legal team would now be pushing governments to introduce specific financial sanctions and travel restrictions to pressure the administration in Male. "A list is being developed with highly detailed information about perpetrators in the Maldives that will be the basis for our discussions with governments," Genser told reporters at a news conference in London. "The only thing that the government of the Maldives is going to understand is direct action and that's what we need to do." The Maldivian Foreign Ministry said last week that the archipelago "would not be made to act on the basis of a non-binding opinion" from the U.N. body, but that the issue had been referred to its Supreme Court, which will rule on the case.

Maldives Vice President Ahmed Adeeb has been arrested on suspicion of links to a blast on the presidential boat last month. Police spokesman Ismail Ali said Adeeb was arrested Saturday at the airport when he returned from an official visit to China. The September 28 explosion took place aboard the boat when President Yameen Abdul Gayoom and his wife were returning to the capital from the airport after a hajj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

As an international law and human rights attorney, Amal Clooney is no stranger to high-stakes cases and navigating precarious, and potentially dangerous, situations. But her visit to the Maldives this week to meet with Mohamed Nasheed, the country's former president currently imprisoned in a Maafushi jail, poses its own risks. "Amal is in a pretty rough spot right now in the Maldives," says a source close to the London-based barrister, who is working pro bono to defend the Maldives' first democratically elected president. "President Nasheed is a really good, forward-thinking man, in a really dangerous situation, and Amal being there is really tricky and really dangerous." In fact, just ahead of Clooney's visit, her co-counsel Mahfooz Saeed was stabbed in the head on Sept. 4 by masked men outside his Malé hotel and remains in critical condition in a local hospital. Immediately following the ambush, Amnesty International called for an impartial investigation and warned, "Maldives authorities must ensure that human rights defenders can work free from fear of reprisals." The organization added, "Political tensions in Maldives are running high, and there is a climate of fear spreading among opposition supporters and human rights defenders, as the human rights situation has deteriorated over the past two years." Clooney, 37, arrived in the Maldives on Monday and had a jail-house meeting the next day with Nasheed, whose detention for "terrorism" Clooney has called "arbitrary and in violation of international law." Describing Nasheed's conviction and 13-year sentence as "a mockery of justice" in an April editorial for The Guardian – his arrest, trial, conviction and sentencing took less than three weeks – she remains steadfast in her fight for the politician's freedom.

Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney tells Amnesty International why she has taken up the case of former President Mohamed Nasheed, former president of the Maldives who was jailed for 13 years on terrorism charges. This hasty trial received universal criticism and the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has declared his imprisonment as a violation of international law. Amal Clooney gave this interview after she spoke at a side event organised by Amnesty International to highlight the human rights situation in the Maldives focusing on fair trials and access to justice. Amal Clooney acts as legal council to Mohamed Nasheed who is only one of several opposition leaders imprisoned following unfair trials. Others include former Defence Minister Mohamed Nazim, sentenced in March to 11 years for allegedly keeping an unlicensed weapon; former Deputy Speaker of Parliament Ahmed Nazim, sentenced in March to 25 years for alleged corruption. Almost all opposition leaders are either in jail or in exile, fearing arrest and imprisonment if they return. They include Sheikh Imran Abdulla, the leader of Adhaalath Party, who has been detained since May. He is at risk of unfair trial. What you could do:Tweet to the President of Maldives - @presidencymv release Mohamed Nasheed. Release or ensure fair trials for other political opponents #StopUnfairTrials Background: In 2015, a series of arrests and imprisonments of high-profile political opponents in the Maldives has drawn criticism from the international community. In the UPR of the Maldives this year, several states called for judicial accountability in the country, citing serious irregularities within national judicial processes that resulted in violations of the right to a fair trial. The Maldives government maintains that due process has been followed in all cases of arrests and imprisonments in the Maldives. The panelists will discuss the ongoing situation and ways forward to ensure that the right to a fair trial is guaranteed and that judicial accountability is enforced.
