Arrested former president Maumoon Abdul Gayoom’s lawyer Mohamed Faisal said that doctors have advised not to leave him in isolation due to his critical health.

He told Mihaaru that Maumoon’s health is concerningly critical now. He elaborated that an ENT specialist was recently brought from capital Male after an incident in jail. According to Faisal, doctors have advised not to move his head.

Doctors have said that Maumoon might fall at any time. It is hard for him to tend to his most basic needs on his own, Faisal said.

Maumoon’s lawyers and family have been continuously requesting the authorities to shift him to house arrest.

After the declaration of the state of emergency on February 5, Maumoon was arrested on terrorism charges and remanded until the end of his trial. He is also being charged with obstructing law enforcement.
