Civil Court orders Police to bring Shafeeg to court hearings
Civil Court has ordered the Police to bring the historian Ahmed Shafeeq, who is under trial by the court for allegedly slandering former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, to the court hearings,
Former President Gayoom filed the law suit against Ahmed Shafeeg for allegedly writing “completely untrue, unfounded and politically-motivated slander” in his book “A Day in the Life of Ahmed Shafeeg”.
Ahmed Shafeeq is a prominent writer and a historian. He was held in solitary confinement from 21 April 1995 for 83 days without charge. About 50 diaries comprising notebooks of various sizes were confiscated by the then government at the time of his arrest.
“A Day in the Life of Ahmed Shafeeg” is based on a statement Ahmed Shafeeg wrote in September 2009, in support of his application to the Human Rights Commission of Maldives to investigate the events that led to his arrest and sufferings.
