Supreme Court of the Maldives has scheduled the verdict hearing in the appeal of the five-year prison sentence and the fine of USD five million set against the former President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom by the Criminal Court.

President Yameen's legal team said that the verdict hearing is at 8:45 a.m. on 30 November 2021, Tuesday.

After the Criminal Court convicted the former President on charges of money laundering and the High Court supported the decision, his legal team appealed the case at the Supreme Court and the court accepted the case on 19 April 2021.

The last hearing in the case was held on 18 November.
