Do you mean that you think Amal, Jared Genser and Nasheed's legal team completely hoodwinked and misled the British prime minister, the UK government, the American Secretary of State, the Sri Lanka Government, the Indian government, the UN and many other members of state from the free world?
Just voicing my opinion.

More likely everyone involved brokered a private deal and the only ones being hoodwinked are the public.

Lizzy,
I said a few times that there might have been an agreement between the Maldives government and Nasheed/his lawyers. 

I don't know if this means 'hoodwink the public' because then every deal with one accused to get a testimony to get the man in charge (sorry, I don't know the vocabulary for that) or even the leniency policy would mean to hoodwink the public.
That's one common way of jurisprudence...

carolhathaway Ive been thinking about this case the last couple of days because of the discussion here.  And the more I think about it the more I think that what you said about "an agreement" is what happened.  
It's just my opinion but seems to me more than anything that the Maldives wanted to rid themselves of Nasheed without "losing face" .... admitting that he was improperly tried and sentenced.  The government had been getting a lot criticism and negative press.  From international courts, other countries, human rights groups and the U.S. government.  So they played the arrangement as if Nasheed would willingly come back but knew that he wasn't, and that was fine with them.  They could officially criticize him for not sticking to the agreement but they were just as happy not to have to deal with any further attention.  They clearly didn't make too much of his not returning other than to make an official statement. That's my current thinking right now. But still none of know enough to make any exact determination.

I know it must look like I really don't like the present Mrs Clooney....to this day, and from the very start I have felt that her master stroke is being an exceptionally "likeable?" package, almost too perfect....on the outside.....

My gut...my God given gut tells me there is more to this package....it makes me fearful....It's like a guy you might be totally into, and then he does something that knocks you, something simple like NOT leave a tip for a waitress....and suddenly  you see a side you don't want to see....so simple but you see it and you don't like it....This is my relationship with Amal....Nasheed is the "tip" that wasn't left, as was Gaddafi's henchmen....The gratuity that was withheld.....the not nice.....Do it once, it's a mistake.....do it twice, I'm on it.....Do it three times.....

I can't find it in my heart to turn a blind eye....I've tried.....So many "pro's"....but the pro's become voided by the simplest of "cons".......
