The court ordered the immediate release and retrial of the exiled former presidentMohamed Nasheed and other opposition leaders. "We believe Yameen might threaten the sitting bench with arrest if they don't revert the decision, " said Naseem. Western countries including USA and United Kingdom have already welcomed the verdict while India has hoped that the ruling will be abided in spirit of democracy.
After the court ruling, Nasheed has declared that he can and will contest the elections which should take place this year.

Earlier, Opposition parties had appealed to the global community including the UN, EU, and India to impress upon the Maldives Government to respect the Supreme Court ruling. The latest ruling reaffirms the fundamentals of the separation of powers.

Shortly after Thursday's ruling the police announced on Twitter that it would enforce it.
The president's office later said it accepted the ruling and would comply with it. Attorney General Mohamed Anil said Areef was sacked because Yameen was repeatedly unable to reach him on the phone.
The Maldives ' popular image as an upmarket holiday paradise has been severely damaged by a major crackdown on dissent under Yameen, who has overseen the jailing of nearly all the political opposition.
