Adhaalath Party (AP)’s leader Sheikh Imran Abdulla was brought to Male’ for a doctor’s appointment on Thursday.
Maldives Correctional Service (MCS)’s information officer told VNews that Sheikh Imran was brought to Male’ for regular checkup, and not due to a health condition.
A VMedia journalist, at Indhira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) when the AP leader was brought, said Sheikh Imran had lost a lot of weight.
Sheikh Imran was also brought to Male’ on March 21. He consulted a doctor and had a scan done that day.
Meanwhile his family and AP have been saying that he had not been receiving proper medical attention.
VMedia understands Sheikh Imran was already getting treated for diabetics, cholesterol and high blood pressure when he was sentenced to prison.
Sheikh Imran was convicted of terrorism charges and sentenced to 12 years of imprisonment.
