Amal Clooney arrived today afternoon in Male, Maldives capital. She was welcomed by the supporters of ex-president Mohamed Nasheed. She is in the Maldives to press for release of ex-leader Mohamed Nasheed.
Amal Clooney said the human rights situation in the Maldives was “deteriorating day by day” as she arrived Monday to press for the release of jailed former president Mohamed Nasheed.
She is part of the high-profile legal team representing Nasheed. Her visit to the island comes days after his local lawyer Mahfooz Saeed was stabbed by an unknown attacker.
“I’m here unfortunately at a time when the human rights situation and security situation are deteriorating day by day,” the private Maldives Independent website quoted her as saying at the airport.
Amal Clooney and her Washington-base co-counsel Jared Genser are expected to travel this week to the high-security Maafushi prison island where Mohamed Nasheed is being held.
Mohamed Nasheed, the country’s first democratically-elected leader, was toppled in February 2012 after a mutiny by police and troops that followed weeks of protests over the arrest of a top judge.
