Self-exiled former President Mohamed Nasheed travelled to Sri Lanka on Sunday morning.
Joint Opposition’s Spokesperson Ahmed Mahloof, who is currently in Sri Lanka, received Nasheed and tweeted that the former President arrived in Colombo on an important mission.
However Mahloof did not disclose any information on the nature of the mission.
Nasheed, convicted on terrorism charges for ordering the chief justice Abdulla Mohamed’s arrest, travelled abroad for medical treatment last January, but did not travel back to the country thereafter.
Nasheed, who sought refuge in the United Kingdom and lives there currently, frequently travels to Sri Lanka to meet and hold discussions with political members. He had, however, not commented regarding his current trip to Sri Lanka.
Nasheed had on previous trips, met with the president and prime minister of Sri Lanka, and also travelled to India.
Nasheed had expressed his desire to compete in the upcoming presidential elections and had stated that he would soon return to Maldives.
