MD Alamgir - a 26-year-old Bangladeshi national who has been convicted of engaging in homosexuality has now confessed to 40 counts of pornography production.
He was arrested on July 12, after videos leaked online purportedly showed him engaging in sex with multiple men.
In August, he was convicted of engaging in homosexuality with three Maldivians. He signed a plea deal with the state and received seven months in prison.
Following this, the Prosecutor General's Office charged Alamgiri with 40 counts of production of pornography under the Penal Code.
The first hearing for this was held on Saturday behind closed doors. It was during this hearing that Alamgiri confessed to the charges.
Hence, it is believed that in the next hearing he will be sentenced.
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 were charged with homosexuality.
Nazim pled guilty to the charge and sentenced to three months in home confinement, while Rafeeu was given one year, two months, and 12 days of jail time.
