Mass Arrests after Anti-government Protest in Male

Male – Maldivian officials have carried out public arrests or mass arrests, including all the top politicians of opposition, following a big anti-government protest that demanding the release of former president of the country Mohamed Nasheed, reports said.

According to the government, the overnight demonstrations became violent and that various police cops were wounded in the conflict with those who support Nasheed, who was officially jailed for total 13 years in the month of April.

“The organizers of this mass protest addressed the available protesters and called on all people to dismiss the government and tackle the cops,” the government officials said in a press release. It said that mass arrests were made, but there is no official figure available.
Nasheed’s MDP (Maldivian Democratic Party) said, more than 170 individual had been captured by police since Friday when about 25,000 individuals took part in a rally or protest march. It was certainly the biggest protest march against the existing government since the jailing of former President Nasheed.

“The enhancing authoritarian regime of current president Abdulla Yameen replied with baton charges, tear gas, and mass arrests and of course stun grenades,” the MDP clarified in a public statement.

Roads of the capital city Male appeared to be normal on Saturday morning. United Nations also criticized the incident of mass arrests in the country. In a statement, UN officials cite that jailing the former president of the country is totally an unfair trail.
The current UN censure came as global experts, especially including London-based lawyer and human rights activist called Amal Clooney who petitioned the global body over the controversial arresting and jailing of former president.
