The family and friends of murdered blogger Yameen Rasheed have organised a peaceful march to be held Tuesday afternoon in his memory and to demand justice for his death.

In a statement, Yameen’s family said that the peaceful march will begin from Artificial Beach on the eastern coast of capital Male at 4:30 p.m., continue down the main road of Majeedhee Magu and finish at Rasfannu on the western coast.

Yameen Rasheed, a renowned blogger and social media activist, was found murdered with over 30 stab wounds in the stairway of his house last month. His family noted that despite a month having passed since his death, Police have yet to disclose information on the culprits to either the family or public.

Expressing hopes that his killers and the solicitors of his murder will soon be found and brought to justice, the family urged as many people as possible to participate in the march.
