Sandhaanu Ahmed Didi requests EU and Commonwealth to help restore peace in Maldives
Maldives Human Rights Ambassador “Sandhaanu” Ahmed Didi has requested the help of the European Union (EU) and the Commonwealth to restore peace and stability in the Maldives.
Ahmed Didi said that Maldives is fragile nation and the government yielded to all the recommendations of the Commonwealth and the EU because the government wants peace to be restored in the country. He said that the government fulfilled the requests of the EU and the Commonwealth to accept the calls of the international community.
Ahmed Didi noted that the most important asset of a nation is its people and what the people want will be decided by the majority. He said that it is saddening and disappointing if the international community decides this based on what only a few people want.
Ahmed Didi said that he requests the EU and the Commonwealth to stop those who are causing unrest in the Maldives if they are sincere and wants the best for the country.
The Maldivian Human Rights Ambassador also said that former President Mohamed Nasheed has been causing much damage to the country by taking the advantage of the statements of the EU and the Commonwealth issued without any research into the current situation of the country. In this regard, he noted that this can be stopped from Nasheed only when the EU and the Commonwealth give their full cooperation.
Ahmed Didi said that an inquiry commission should be established to investigate the events of February 6 when a large number of people were left to be attacked near the Artificial Beach Area. He said that the report of this investigation should precede the report of the Commission of National Inquiry (CoNI) established to investigate the events of February 7.
