Maldives plans new law to curb anti-India protests

Date: 02 February 2022 Tags: India & World
  • Members of the main ruling party in the Maldives are considering legislation to criminalise protests “that affect the country’s relations with other nations”.
  • A draft Bill circulated within the Maldives Democratic Party (MDP) comes against the backdrop of protests in the Indian Ocean country over the perceived proximity of the Ibrahim Solih government to India.
  • The draft Bill is said to have proposed a fine of 20,000 Maldivian Rufiyah, and six-month imprisonment or one-year house arrest, for those who insinuate that the Maldives is under the political, economic or military control of another country.
