MD Alamgir, a young Bangladeshi national who has admitted to engaging in sexual acts with multiple men, including several high-profile Maldivians, has been sentenced to seven months for homosexuality.
Alamgir, 26, was arrested on July 12, after videos leaked online purportedly showing him engaging in sex with multiple men.
He plead guilty to the charge on Monday.
The Criminal Court issued its sentence on Wednesday.
In a closed hearing, Judge Ali Adam sentenced Alamgir to seven months and seven days in prison, and to repent.
The videos leaked online purportedly show Alamgir having sex with Ahmed Nazim Abdul Sattar, a prominent lawyer and younger brother of Parliament speaker, former president Mohamed Nasheed, former Nolhivaram MP Mohamed Nasheed (Colonel Nasheed), and Sergeant Abdul Rahman Rafeeu, a senior police officer from the Drug Enforcement Department (DED). All three await trial.
