In the Pacific Island nation of the Maldives, a court has thrown out “terrorism” charges against former President Mohamed Nasheed and several other former politicians. Mohamed Nasheed was the Maldives’ first democratically elected president, known internationally for his work on climate change. In 2012, he was ousted in what he called an armed coup by supporters of former dictator Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, and has since been living in exile in Great Britain.
