London-based human rights lawyer Amal Clooney will soon visit Mohamed Nasheed, the former president of the Maldives whose incarceration has sparked widespread international condemnation, his office said Thursday.Clooney -- who has notably defended Mohamed Fahmy, one of three Al-Jazeera journalists sentenced to jail in Egypt -- will travel to the Indian Ocean archipelago with her Washington-based co-counsel Jared Genser next week to meet with Nasheed. Nasheed announced in April that Clooney would be part of his high-profile legal team, along with Genser -- who has previously represented Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi -- and Ben Emmerson, a judge on war crimes in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia.
