Former President and Parliament Speaker Mohamed Nasheed has withdrawn a petition filed in the Civil Court against the state to stop the removal of trees from the road for the Ameenee Magu road development project.
Nasheed initially filed a petition in court seeking an order to continue the Ameenee Magu road development project without removing the trees lining the road.
The Civil Court, in its ruling yesterday, said Nasheed had filed a motion to discontinue the case, and as the prosecution did not object to the motion, the charges were withdrawn.
When the case was filed, Nasheed's lawyer asked the court to issue an interim order to stop the removal of trees from Ameenee Magu. However, the Court had denied Nasheed's injunction request.
The first phase of the Ameenee Magu road development project, which was commissioned by the Road Development Corporation (RDC), has been completed and is now open for public use.
