Leaked video: Nazim's remand extended by seven days

Parliament Speaker Mohamed Nasheed’s brother, Nazim Abdul Sattar's remand has been extended by seven days.

Nazim Abdul Sattar was arrested on July 28 over a leaked video that showed a man believed to be Nazim engaging in sexual activities with a Bangladeshi national, MD Alamgiri. His arrest came after about a month after the video was leaked on social media platforms.

Nazim was arrested from a resort in Aa. atoll, and he was taken to Aa. Rasdhoo Magistrate Court to decide on his remand. While he was initially remanded into custody for seven days, the remand period has been extended again for a second time.
