Political activist from Maldives returns to Fulton

A Westminster College graduate fighting for election reform in the Maldives returns to the Fulton campus this week to discuss her political activism.

Shauna Aminath is a 2008 Westminster graduate and a native of the Maldives. She was arrested in the Indian Ocean republic after the 2012 ouster of President Mohamed Nasheed.

Aminath was a deputy undersecretary in Nasheed's administration. She now works to restore the democratic elections that have been replaced by parliamentary votes.
