A letter, signed by the four opposition leaders, has been sent to the Indian Prime Minister on the current situation in the Maldives.

The letter was taken to the Indian embassy by Anas Abdul Sattar, the secretary-general of the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP), and Ahmed Sameer, the secretary-general of the Jumhoree Party (JP).

The letter details the Maldivian government’s unlawful actions ahead of this year’s presidential election.
