"Are you expecting him back?"

The former President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed has been allowed out of jail to travel abroad for medical treatment. The surgery is available there - but he has been given leave to go to Britain instead. He has always claimed he is innocent of the anti-terror charges he faced - and the United Nations said his trial was unfair. So will he go back to the Maldives, and back into prison, or is he likely to stay away now he is out of the country? A question Lawrence Pollard put to Foreign Minister of the Maldives Dunya Maumoon.
