Former Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed who sought asylum from United Kingdom after fleeing the country promised to return to homeland on November.
The ex-president who has lived the past years in self-imposed exile claimed that despite his cases still remain to be concluded at local courts, he will be coming back to Maldives on November 1.
"To everyone's attention, I wish to fly back to Maldives on November 1. I do not mind how where I stand regarding the cases pressed against me," Nasheed sent the message to the joint parliamentary group.
While Nasheed has expressed his plans of returning home on November, coalition backed president-elect Ibrahim Mohamed Solih will be swearing in as the island nation's president on November 17.
Solih has promised of releasing all political prisoners arrested under Abdulla Yameen's administration; most of whom were apprehended on trumped-up charges according to several key advocates and activists backing the coalition.
