Dear HE Mr. Kamalesh SharmaI write to you to express my concern with regard to the overthrow of the first democratically elected government of the Maldives. As a citizen of a Commonwealth member country, I appreciate the engagement of the Commonwealth and the early convening of the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) and the CMAG mission that is currently ongoing in the Maldives.
While most of the international community appear to support a full inquiry into the events surrounding Mr. Nasheed’s resignation and has called for early elections, I respectfully call upon you as the Secretary-General to implement the Millbrook Commonwealth Action Programme on the Harare Declaration and pending a free and fair election in the Maldives to exclude the current Maldivian regime from “participation at ministerial level meetings of the Commonwealth”.
I further call upon you to recall the invitation that was accorded to the Head of Government of the Maldives to participate in a luncheon in June to celebrate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee until free and fair elections are held in the Maldives and a Head of Government elected by the people of Maldives is able to attend.
