Maldives: More on the Farcical Trial of Nasheed

Paper No. 5888                               Dated 7-Mar-2015

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Latest media reports indicate that Indian Prime Minister Modi will be skipping Maldives in his tour of the island nations in the Indian Ocean.  Had his visit taken place earlier in February, it would have had some meaning but now with the Yameen administration intent upon destroying whatever that is left of democracy, it is wiser to skip Maldives.  It will be a signal to Yameen that India does not approve the strong arm undemocratic methods of Yameen.
