Police have asked for public assistance in identifying four men seen in a video clip captured of the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) protest on Tuesday near the Male City Council Office in Majeedhee Magu.

In a statement police asked the public to provide any regarding the four persons to the police criminal investigation department on 963 1696 or police headquarters at 332 2111.

Police also said that, if required, protection will be given to anyone who shared information with the police.

Yesterday the police also published the picture of MDP activist Ali Hashim, 24, from the island of Dhidhoo in Haa Alifu Atoll.

Hashim was previously arrested by police in connection with the murder of Dr Afrasheem Ali, but was released without charge.

Police said Hashim surrendered himself to the police at 10:55pm last night and was is now under police charge.

Police have not disclosed why the four suspects were being searched for.

MDP protesters took to the street after police arrested former President Mohamed Nasheed in compliance with an arrest warrant issued by the Hulhumale’ Magistrate Court.

Nasheed is to appear for his alleged unlawful detention of Chief Criminal Court Judge Abdulla Mohamed during his final days in office, charges his party maintain are a politically-motivated attempt to disqualify him from the September 7 elections.

Nasheed’s legal team filed a case at the Criminal Court yesterday requesting for a writ to habeas corpus. However the Criminal Court rejected the case without holding a hearing.
