Nasheed’s appeal dismissed

Mohammed Nasheed  

Mohammed Nasheed, sentenced to 13 years in jail under anti-terrorism laws, on Sunday suffered another blow when the former Maldivian President’s appeal against his arrest order was dismissed by the High Court here.

The court threw out Mr. Nasheed’s appeal against his February 22 arrest as he refused to enter the courtroom for the first hearing of his appeal case in protest because his request to hold the hearing in public was rejected.
