The Maldives Police Service has arrested the former President and opposition leader Mohamed Nasheed on Sunday.

The police had arrested him with a warrant from the Criminal Court on charges of terrorism allegations.

According to the warrant, the Police have been ordered to arrest the opposition leader in order to give him no opportunity to flee before trial.

He has now been taken to the prison facility in Dhoonidhoo Island.

He was arrested on terrorism allegations for having arrested and detained Abdulla Ghazi, the Chief Judge of the Criminal Court during his administration.

Nasheed’s arrest has sparked protests. His supporters – gathered near his home, where he was arrested – have clashed with the Police.

Reportedly, Judge Abdulla Ghazi had taken leave on Wednesday and assigned Judge Abdulla Didi to act on his behalf.
