NEW DELHI: India today said it was “disturbed” by Maldives President Abdulla Yameen’s move to impose a state of emergency in the island nation amid a deepening confrontation between the government and the judiciary.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) issued a brief statement expressing concern at the arrest of the Supreme Court chief justice and political figures in the wake of yesterday’s declaration of emergency. However, it gave no indication of whether India will directly intervene in Maldives.

“We are disturbed by the declaration of a State of Emergency in the Maldives following the refusal of the Government to abide by the unanimous ruling of the full bench of the Supreme Court on 1 February, and also by the suspension of Constitutional rights of the people of Maldives,” said the MEA.

India said it will continue monitoring the situation in Maldives, which is rapidly coalescing into a full-blown political crisis.

The show of support comes after exiled former president Mohamed Nasheed urged India to send military intervention to resolve the ongoing political stand-off. Indian intervention in the
Maldives
would not be unprecedented, as New Delhi sent troops in 1988 to foil a coup, purportedly involving foreign mercenaries.

Having defied the court ruling to release the detainees, President Yameen declared a 15-day emergency, which suspends all basic rights and gives sweeping powers to security forces to arrest and detain suspects. Following this, Yameen ordered security forces to seize control of the Supreme Court and arrest chief justice Abdulla Saeed and another judge, without giving details about the investigation or any charges against them.

Beijing, which is closely allied to the Yameen regime, has called for resolution of the political stand-off through dialogue without external intervention.
