Male, Feb 16 (PTI) Former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed remained holed up in the Indian Mission here for the fourth day in a row even as the country's judicial watchdog accused Indian High Commissioner D M Mullay of interfering in judicial process. Nasheed has remained at the High Commission since Wednesday, when he took refuge there to evade getting arrested for failing to appear in court last weekend to face charges of abuse of power while he was President. Official sources said the situation has not "changed much" since the Foreign Ministers of the two countries spoke on Thursday. Asked if the High Commission was in talks with the Maldivian government to sort out the situation, sources said talks have been on at an informal level as the mission was closed for two days for holidays and will reopen tomorrow. Meanwhile, the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), a watchdog responsible for the administration of the justice system here, accused Mullay of meddling in local politics, a charge described by Indian official as "totally absurd". "We regret the interference of the High Commissioner of India in Maldives in his personal capacity with the judicial process of the Maldives," the JSC said in a statement. It said the Indian envoy was "impeding the due process of the law" by "keeping" Nasheed within the diplomatic compound. India has already rejected Maldivian charge that it was undermining its democratic institutions, saying it has no intention to interfere in its internal affairs. MORE PTI SAP/PYK SAP
