    0

    MALE: The Supreme Court in the Maldives has sacked the elections chief and handed him a suspended jail term after he criticized judges during last year’s chaotic contest to choose a president. Less than a fortnight before parliamentary elections are due, Chief Commissioner Fuwad Thowfeek and his deputy Ahmed Fayaz were dismissed for “disobeying and challenging” orders issued by the court in its role as “guardian of the constitution”, the private Minivan News website said.
