C’est ce que je veux affirmer avec la plainte que j’ai officiellement logée au Human Rights Commission, contre un officier de la Station de Police de Quatre Bornes pour une gifle donnée dans un moment d’excès de zèle. Certainement un délit de fasciés après une dure journée ! Mais l’un n’explique en aucun cas, l’autre !
Well, you got it all wrong !
When British and American governments team up to trick, kill their pets, displace, and wipe out an entire population from their homeland, while concealing important vital facts to the International Community, ain’t that a crime against humanity ? Watch the video, then you might understand. Read More
Another Mauritian Tale about Police Brutality… But shouldn’t we go beyond ?
On the 2nd of March this year, the news came out as a traumatising shockwave to entire Mauritius!
Iqbal Toofanny, 42 yr-old father of three, was declared deceased by the coroner, 48 hrs after his arrest and stay in custody. Publicized photographic evidence showed multiple contusion and bruises, on several parts of Toofanny’s body. These made no doubt about how the 42 year old citizen, was mistreated, brutalized and beaten up while in Police Custody.
Five suspects, all CID (Central Investigation Department) officers, were indicted on charges of torture and later bailed out on a Rs 9 000 (300 USD) bond, after 24 hrs detention. This, by itself, has been lived through as mere injustice, by an entire empathic population. The entire Police Force and Mauritian judiciary became (again) suspects of unequal justice delivery, towards simple citizen. How can five Police officers come out with a Rs 9000 bail, when there are strong unrebuttable presumption of torture and manslaughter? The Scene was set!
To the eyes of many, this kind of situation could have triggered social chaos. Should this had happened under the previous detested Ramgoolam government, there would have definitely been profound social unrest and riots, like in 1999 when iconic creole singer Kaya died in Police Custody. Read More
