He recalled that Amnesty International, and many others, have documented a wide range of human rights violations committed by security forces following Nasheed’s resignation. These include police violence against peaceful protesters and the deliberate targeting of Nasheed’s supporters.
According to Amnesty International, no one has yet been held to account for these abuses despite the huge amount of documentary evidence available. It demanded that the Maldivian authorities must carry out a full investigation into alleged abuses by anyone, and not just target political opponents.
Stating that former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom (1978-2008) has never been investigated or held to account for alleged abuses committed during his rule, Amnesty International demanded that all leaders should be held to account for alleged abuses and in fair trials.
