Maldives heading for anarchy?

The Maldives government has ordered the security forces to resist any move by the Supreme Court to arrest or impeach President Abdulla Yameen.
 
The court on Friday had ruled the trial of exiled ex-President Mohamed Nasheed unconstitutional and ordered the release of nine MPs, which would see the opposition majority restored.
 
Refusing to comply, the government instead suspended parliament.
 
The attorney general said any move to arrest the president would be illegal.
 
Attorney General Mohamed Anil appeared at a press conference yesterday (Feb. 04) with the defence chief, Gen Shiyam, and Commissioner of Police Abdulla Nawaz, whose predecessor had been sacked for saying he would apply the court's ruling.
 
Anil said he believed the Supreme Court might try to rule that the president could no longer remain in power.
