Mauritius: Former Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam wants to retrieve the 220 million rupees seized at his residence

Navin Ramgoolam mired in court cases is not willing to give up so far. The former Prime Minister of Mauritius goes on the offensive.
The lawmen have contested, on Thursday, in the Supreme Court the legality of the search of the home of Navin Ramgoolam conducted on February 6. Lawyers contend that the significant amounts are thus integrally returned to their client. "The search was illegal because the law has not been followed the constitutional rights of my client were not respected," said the lawyer Yousuf Mohamed.
As a reminder, 220 million rupees* also comprise foreign currencies had been seized in the two safes and several suitcases recovered during a search at the residence of Navin Ramgoolam on 6 February.
Navin Ramgoolam prosecuted for conspiracy on obstructing justice in the case of burglary his camp at Roches Noires and especially money laundering, has still justified that the significant amounts found at his home had been provided by generous donors for financing the Labour Party.
