The Criminal Court has extended the remands of Supreme Court Judge Ali Hameed and Dhangethi MP Ilham Ahmed until the end of their trials.

Both were arrested under the ongoing state of emergency (SOE) and charged with attempted coup and terrorism. While their remands have been extended, the SOE will expire this Thursday.

It was scheduled on Tuesday to increase the remands of MP Abdulla Sinan, Chief Judge Abdulla Saeed, former President Maumoon Abdul Gayyoom, his son MP Faris Maumoon and former Police Commissioner Ahmed Areef. However, the hearings were later cancelled.

The government has declared that they do not intend to further extend the SOE after it expires.
