🇲🇻 Maldives court frees opposition politicians

Mohamed Nasheed has been living in exile since 2016.

He called on the government to respect the ruling, which acquits him and his colleagues.

In it's ruling the Supreme Court also reversed the expulsion of 12 politicians who had defected from current President Abdulla Yameen's party.

The judge’s ruling now gives the opposition a majority in parliament.
