International human rights lawyer Amal Clooney attended the hearing of the Maldives high court on the terrorism conviction of former president of the island nation Mohamed Nasheed. The lawyer was pictured heading to the court in her smart work outfit Thursday.
The 37-year-old was dressed impeccably in a red dress, which featured a square neckline and three-quarter length sleeves. Clooney teamed her look with black peep toe sandals and a matching big envelope wallet.
The British-Lebanese lawyer wore small earrings. She opted for red lipstick, nude manicure and black eyeliner. Her long tresses were left loose over her shoulders in waves.
The lawyer looked flawless in her work outfit on Wednesday. She opted for a black-white-gray skirt-suit combo which she paired with a white blouse.
She wore small pearl drop earrings, carried a vintage-style Gucci tote with bamboo handles and wore a slick on deep brown on her lips. A source close to the lawyer said that she was in a “dangerous situation” in Maldives, while the Clooneys rep said that she had been offered money “to not do this job and to just be famous and pretty and stylish.”
Clooney is part of the high-profile legal team representing Nasheed. Her visit to the honeymoon island comes days after his local lawyer Mahfooz Saeed was stabbed by an unknown attacker in Male last week. Clooney’s visit to the country is to press for the release of the former leader, who was sentenced to 13-year imprisonment in March.
Nasheed was elected president in 2008, and was sentenced in March under a tough anti-terror law. His trial was criticized by the United Nations, U.S. and human rights groups which termed it as “deeply flawed”.
Meanwhile, the barrister, who is married to Hollywood actor George Clooney, 54, also represented Al Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fahmy earlier in Egypt.
