    Maldives ex-leader jailed for 19 months MALÉ, Maldives, June 13, 2018 (AFP) – A court in the Maldives on Wednesday sentenced former strongman leader Maumoon Abdul Gayoom to 19 months in prison for obstructing an investigation into an alleged plot to oust the current president. The Criminal Court ruled that Gayoom, 80, interfered with the probe into the attempt to topple President Abdulla Yameen, his half-brother, by refusing to divulge his phone details. Gayoom was arrested along with Chief Justice Abdulla Saeed and Supreme Court Justice Ali Hameed in February for their alleged role in clearing the way for an impeachment of Yameen. The three men are facing a separate charge of terrorism and that case is still pending. They were arrested soon after Yameen declared a state of emergency which removed parliament’s power to impeach him. All dissidents in the Maldives, an upscale holiday paradise for foreigners where poverty is rife, have either been locked up or fled the country amid a crackdown on opposition activists. Yameen, 59, resorted to emergency laws to prevent being impeached by parliament after he lost his majority in the legislature. His move also curtailed the powers of the judiciary and parliament after the Supreme Court made a ruling which would have allowed former president Mohamed Nasheed — who lives in exile in London — to return and challenge Yameen for the presidency in September elections. Yameen refused to follow the court order and instead arrested the two top judges as well as Gayoom. The political crisis has dented the image of the nation comprising 1,192 tiny coral islands as a popular tourist destination and has prompted alarm abroad, including at the United Nations. Rights group Amnesty International on Wednesday criticised Gayoom’s sentencing as “politically motivated” and the “product of trials that do not meet international standards”.

    Indian-controlled Kashmir chief minister calls for end to hostilities along India-Pakistan border NEW DELHI, June 13 (Xinhua) — Indian-controlled Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Wednesday called for cessation of hostilities along the border between India and Pakistan to protect lives and properties of people living in the frontier areas. Mufti’s call has come in the backdrop of Wednesday’s alleged killing of four Indian border guards in the skirmishes with Pakistan in the Ramgarh sector of Samba district. In the meantime, Pakistani foreign ministry also said on Wednesday in a statement that Indian forces resorted to “unprovoked ceasefire violation” along the LoC on Tuesday in Chirikot Sector, resulting in one civilian’s death in Trothi village. The statement said that in 2018 Indian forces have “carried out more than 1100 ceasefire violations” along the LoC and the Working Boundary, resulting in the killing of 29 civilians, while injuring 117 others. Last month armies of the two countries agreed to implement 2003 cease-fire agreement “in letter and spirit.” However, both New Delhi and Islamabad accuse each other of resorting to unprovoked firings and violating cease-fire agreements.
