Paper No. 6061         Dated 19-Jan-2016

Maldives: Unconstitutional Power Grab by the Supreme Court?:

Paper No 5958         Dated 23-June-2015
By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan
 
The Supreme Court of Maldives is said to have made yet another strike at the roots of democracy in Maldives.
 
 Earlier, last year it interfered with the conduct of the General elections and even went to the extent of sacking both the Election Commissioner and his Deputy for not adhering to the sixteen point guide lines issued by them on the conduct of the elections.
 

Maldives: Dictatorship under the garb of Democracy:

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
The MDP Spokesperson in describing the current developments in Maldives commented that the slide to dictatorship in Maldives is now complete.This appears to be a fair statement as the current regime appears to be bent upon using the archaic Terrorism Act for suppressing all opposition to it.
