Court orders police to bring ex-president
(AP) — A Maldives court has ordered police to produce former President Mohamed Nasheed, who failed to appear for a hearing to face charges that he illegally ordered the arrest of a judge.
Police spokesman Hasan Haneef says the court instructed police on Tuesday to produce Nasheed on Sunday.
Last week, the Hulhumale Magistrate Court ordered Nasheed to appear at a hearing and not leave the capital, Male, without the court’s permission. Nasheed defied both orders.
Nasheed was a democracy activist and political prisoner before becoming president in the country’s first multiparty election in 2008.
He resigned as president in February after losing the support of the military and police during widespread protests triggered by the secret arrest of a senior judge.
