07 February, 2018, 01:23 | Author: Chad Mckenzie
Mohamed Nasheed, an exiled former president of the Maldives, has urged the Indian government to militarily intervene in the archipelago´s current political crisis after President Abdulla Yameen declared a 15-day state of emergency.
His lawyer, Maumoon Hameed, said Mr Gayoom faces charges including bribery and attempting to overthrow the government. "We must remove him from power".
He was also president between 1978 to 2008 when the Maldives, which relies on tourism, became a multi-party democracy. The whereabouts of the court's other two judges are not clear.
The constitutional rights suspended president Yameen has effectively quashed any moves by the opposition to impeach him while also stripping the Supreme Court of any authority. "He has no democratic mandate to govern and must resign immediately".

She said: "You dress glamorously and obviously it's about being presentable but I never felt I was taken advantage of". Bernie Ecclestone, meanwhile, has slammed the "prudish" decision to dispense with grid girls in the lead-up to races.
Without directly commenting on the United Nations, the USA and India's criticism of the handling of situation by Yameen, Geng said China believes that the Maldives government, political parties and people have the wisdom and the capability to deal with their current situation on their own.
China's emphasis on seeking a domestically driven breakthrough follows a call by the former Maldivian President, Mohammed Nasheed, for India's support in the release of political prisoners, who remain behind bars, in defiance of a ruling by the apex court in Male.
Declaring the emergency, Yameen's office issued a statement saying the court order had disrupted functions of the executive and infringed national security and public interest.
In a video message posted on Twitter before his arrest, Gayoom told supporters he will not "give up on working for reform".
They plan to submit no-confidence motions against the attorney general, prosecutor general, home minister and defence minister, Mahloof said. The island nation has been witnessing political unrest and street protests since Nasheed was convicted in 2015 on terror charges and sentenced to 13 years in jail.
He has said he wants to contest a presidential election due later this year, and was in Colombo when Supreme Court decision precipitated the crisis. He lost the 2013 election to Yameen and then was convicted under Maldives' anti-terrorism laws in a trial widely criticised by worldwide rights groups.
Allowed to leave jail to seek medical treatment overseas, Nasheed was granted asylum by Britain in 2016.
