The Government of the Maldives reiterates its firm commitment to uphold and abide by the ruling of the Supreme Court.

As the ruling of the Court involves a number of legal/procedural issues, all concerned national authorities are currently working in unison towards compliance. The Prosecutor General will submit each case to the Supreme Court to clarify the issues identified and for guidance and direction.

At this time of great national significance, it is important that the nation remains united, and work together with patience to ensure national security, peace, stability and safety of its people. The government will continue to work towards strengthening the democratic system of the country and ensure that all services to its people and as well as all ongoing development projects are implemented without any interruptions.

The Government would also like to take this opportunity to assure its development partners and the international community that there are no safety issues for foreign nationals working in the country, as well as those visiting the Maldives as tourists on their vacation.
