Maldives: Trial of opposition leader on charges of terrorism and sedition resumes

The trial of opposition party leader, Mohamed Nasheed, arrested during a pro-democracy rally and charged with terrorism and sedition, resumed on 28 May. His lawyer argued that Mohamed Nasheed would not get a fair trial due to a lack of judicial independence. An ICJ trial observer has been monitoring the trial since it began in August 2005.
