Former Attorney General, Dhiyana Saeed, is the presidential nominee for the next Secretary General to represent the Maldives in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), reports Miadhu.

Dhiyana was appointed AG by President Nasheed in November 2008 and later dismissed in May 2009, before the new Parliament was sworn in.

Dhiyana is married to local businessman Abdulla Jabir, who recently joined the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) and has been linked to a corruption case involving the State Trading Organisation (STO) and People’s Alliance (PA) leader, Abdulla Yameen.
