Mauritius: Multiplication of flights in hotels in the North of the island
Several hotel rooms of tourists in the North of Mauritius have been visited by burglars last week, who have left no trace of breaking behind them on the premises, for a damage estimated at 400,000 rupees (10,000 euros) for tourist victims.

For police officers in charge of various investigations the track of internal complicity in hotels is seriously considered in the light of the mode of operation established by burglars.

Since the beginning of 2013, the scenario was previously repeated in twenty flights accommodations in the heart of the North of Mauritius though equipped with cameras and guard services.

The Mauritian police conducted 9 arrests in the wake of these crimes since January, including 7 suspects who worked at the hotel groups victim of these flights.
 And according to a high-ranking police interviewed by the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius, 80% of burglaries at hotels are committed by employees of hotels.

To eradicate the phenomenon of thefts from hotels, the Mauritian police will increase from today patrols near hotels and bungalows frequented by tourists and at the same time a campaign to raise awareness of the legal consequences of flights with the hotel staff in northern Mauritius.
