Former Maldives President Dr Mohamed Waheed on Tuesday claimed the MVR 1,000 penalty imposed on him over allegedly violating Health Protection Agency (HPA) guidelines was politically motivated.

The special alliance of the opposition alliance, comprising Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) and People's National Congress (PNC), was fined following posts on social media highlighting an improperly masked Waheed during a protest held by the coalition.

During a press conference held in front of Maldives Police Service's Headquarters, Waheed expressed that he did not violate guidelines.
