Convicted former President Mohamed Nasheed arrived in neighbouring Sri Lanka again on Thursday.

Former President Nasheed is currently facing a second terrorism charge over the arbitrary detention of incumbent President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom during the former’s regime in June 2010.

Nasheed is already sentenced to thirteen years in jail under terrorism charges for the arbitrary detention of the High Court’s former Chief Judge Abdulla Mohamed during his presidency. Nasheed has since fled to the United Kingdom where he has been living under political asylum for over a year.
