Yameed Rasheed stood for justice, human rights, equality and anti-corruption. But most importantly he stood for his best friend Ahmed Rilwan (@moyameeha) who was abducted three years ago. He spoke volumes through his writings and inspired many through his ideals. He raged against apathy and fostered courage and hope. On 23rd April 2017, he was murdered on the stairwell of his home.But contrary to what the killers intended, the strongest and bravest voice for justice will not be silenced. His passion will not be killed. His ideals will not be erased and his hopes will not go unrealized.

This issue of the Transparency Review is dedicated to Yameen Rasheed.
