Renowned human rights lawyer Amal Clooney has had talks with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on the issue involving former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed.
Clooney, the wife of Hollywood actor George Clooney, was in the Maldives as part of a legal team pushing for Nasheed’s release before she arrived in Sri Lanka.
In Sri Lanka, she also met with the US Ambassador to Sri Lanka and the Maldives Atul Keshap and other diplomats.
Meanwhile protests were staged in the Maldives today demanding the release of Nasheed from jail. (Colombo Gazette)
