Press Release on the situation in Maldives

February 21, 2018

We are deeply dismayed that the Government of Maldives has extended the State of Emergency for a further 30 days. The manner in which the extension of the State of Emergency was approved by the Majlis in contravention of the Constitution of Maldives is also a matter of concern.

The consequent delay in the resumption of the political process and the continuing suspension of the functioning of democratic institutions including the judiciary is likely to further delay restoration of normalcy in Maldives.

It is important to ensure that all democratic institutions are allowed to function in a fair and transparent manner in accordance with the Constitution.
