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".......

I'm surprised that Nasheed wants to return to run for office.  As the article stated Nasheed will most likely be arrested if he returns.  I'm not confident .... and wonder how he could be ... that the UN will be able to protect his rights or apply adequate pressure to prevent him from being jailed. Taking a huge risk ... seems to me.

Katie - I'd be interested to hear your take on this. Does it make any sense for him to return? Does he have any chance at all of being re-elected? I wonder if Amal has anything to do with this, or if she's even been consulted.

Legally he can't be re-elected or even run for election unless his [laughable] conviction for terrorism is expunged.  My reading is that by coming back, he brings the world's attention to what's going on and perhaps he can make some sort of impact that way.

My understanding is he'll be arrested the minute he steps foot in the country and he knows that.

If the election doesn't take place until 2018 I suppose he could test the waters safely from outside the country until he absolutely had to go home and campaign. It does seem like an odd move after all the trouble they went to to get him out.

I wonder if Amal will be involved at all, or if she even cares. After all, she's got more important things on her mind now. Smile

Oh, I think Doughty Street keep a watching brief on their clients, and I'd be very surprised if he hadn't talked to her about it.

I admire him. He's keeping his promise to go back,  despite what may happen to him. Brave and principled man

It is brave of Nasheed to go back. It is a sign that he cares for his country and wants to do what is best for their future. Principled. Yes. But also quite risky. I assume much thought went into his decision and consultations with his family and lawyers.
