Amal Clooney Backs Former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed at a Press Conference in Red Dolce & Gabbana Skirt Suit and Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Susi’ Pumps

Before she even became known to us as George Clooney’s wife, Amal Clooney had already made a name for herself in international human rights law. She’s a lawyer, activist and author, and she looked every bit the part as she attended a press conference for her latest client Mohamed Nasheed at Doughty Street Chambers on Monday.

The 38-year-old London-based British-Lebanese lawyer kept things conservative and professional in a red suit by Dolce & Gabbana. It included a double-breasted coat with velvet trims and a matching knee-length skirt.

Amal Alamuddin Clooney has represented high-profile clients such as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and former Ukraine prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko. One of her latest clients was former Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed, who was deposed in what he called a military coup.

In an interview, he said that he had been forced to resign “at gunpoint” by military and police forces. And just last year, he was sentenced to 13 years in jail after being convicted of a terrorism charge.

Nasheed — Indian Ocean island’s first democratically elected leader — was temporarily released from prison to undergo spinal surgery in London.

George Clooney’s wife is defending Nasheed. She took time to talk to the press, saying that “the case for sanctions remains urgent even though president Nasheed is here today. We cannot forget that he has not been pardoned in the Maldives. He has not been given permission to run in the next presidential elections.”

“He was also not the only political prisoner behind bars in the country. You have, at the moment, two former defense ministers, one former vice president, one former deputy parliamentary speaker, and leaders of every opposition party in prison in the Maldives. You also have a further 1,700 people who are either facing charges or currently being prosecuted by the authorities in the Maldives for simply peaceful political activity and speech,” she added.

Amal not only has an impressive resume, she also has an impressive wardrobe. She teamed her chic co-ords with black tights and a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo “Susi” pumps. They are made of croc-embossed leather and have suede toe caps, ostrich heel counters, gold trims, and about four-inch stiletto heels.
