An inquiry commission has determined that the Maldives' first democratically elected president was not forced to resign, as he has claimed.
The former president of the Maldives was charged Monday with illegally ordering the arrest of a senior judge, escalating tensions on the Indian ocean island nation.

Supporters of the former Maldives president rioted through the streets of the capital and seized some remote police stations Wednesday to demand his reinstatement, as the country's new leader appealed for an end to the political turmoil roiling the Indian Ocean island nation.
Mr. Hassan, who earlier promised to protect Mr. Nasheed from retribution, said his predecessor was not under any restriction and was free to leave the country.
