Former president Mohamed Nasheed said he had not yet decided whether to return to the Maldives at a press conference Monday in London, where he has traveled for medical treatment.Nasheed, 48, arrived in London on Thursday after being granted 30 days of leave from the Maldives for spinal cord surgery in a deal brokered by Sri Lanka, India and former colonial power Britain.Nasheed became the first democratically-elected president of the Maldives in 2008 and served for four years before he was toppled in what he called a coup backed by the military and police.Nasheed also criticized lawyer Cherie Blair, wife of Britain's former prime minister Tony Blair, for advising the Maldives government, a decision which has drawn controversy in Britain's media.
