Maldives Supreme Court on Tuesday issued a stay order on enforcing former President Mohamed Nasheed’s 13-year prison sentence. 


The court halted the conviction after the Prosecutor General (PG) requested the apex court to review verdict against Mr Nasheed last Sunday. 


The order requested state authorities not to take any action against Nasheed until it reviews the verdict as requested by the PG’s Office. The judgment comes two days before former President is to return to Male on Thursday. 


Mr. Nasheed was convicted on terrorism charges and given a 13-year prison sentence in March, 2015 for arresting a criminal court Judge Abdulla during his regime. 


Maldives Democratic Party (MDP) led by Mr Nasheed was instrumental in the victory of Joint opposition candidate Ibrahim Mohamed Solih at the Presidential elections held in August.
