December 2022

The Criminal Court of Maldives on 25 December 2022 found former president Abdulla Yameen guilty on charges of corruption and money laundering, sentencing him to an 11-year jail term. The sentencing rules out Yameen’s presidential candidacy in the upcoming 2023 election for now, as Yameen plans to appeal. Yameen was sentenced to five years in jail for money laundering in 2019 on separate charges, but the Supreme Court overturned the verdict in 2021 due to discrepancies in the evidence presented at the initial trial.
