The Maldives government permits an imprisoned ex-president to travel to Britain for surgery
Maldives' ex-president has been sentenced to 13 years in prison after a disputed trial.
The US and India have voiced concern after former Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed was forcibly dragged into court to face terrorism charges, and denied legal access and medical treatment.
