On Friday, a protest was held in Male' city calling for the release of President Yameen, who is currently serving an 11-year prison sentence handed down by the criminal court of the Maldives.
The protest was attended by a large crowd of people who held signs and banners calling for the president's release. The demonstrators also shouted slogans and called for justice for President Yameen, who was convicted on charges of money laundering and accepting bribery.
While the protest was peaceful, tensions were high as security forces were deployed to the area to maintain order.
The protest is the latest in a series of demonstrations calling for the release of President Yameen, who has maintained his innocence and claimed that his trial was politically motivated. His supporters argue that he is a victim of a political witch hunt, and they believe that he is being unfairly targeted by the government.
Despite the controversy surrounding his case, President Yameen remains a popular figure among many Maldivians, and his supporters are determined to fight for his release.
