If you don’t normally take much interest in what is happening in #Maldives can I recommend you take a couple of minutes to read this statement of concern by UN #humanrights High Commissioner Zeid? https://t.co/rBK0df7s0e

#Maldives: The declaration of the State of Emergency is an all-out assault on democracy. It creates a dangerous concentration of power in hands of President. This situation could result in a greater number of human rights violations https://t.co/vRvWDdoHHk pic.twitter.com/s6wnqZQzH7

France is concerned by the suspension of public freedoms and by the arrests following the declaration of the state of emergency in the #Maldives.
We call for a swift return to the normal functioning of the institutions and for respect for the rule of law.https://t.co/mDdTIuI0bW pic.twitter.com/EfCZDU32yu
