Mauritius: Police of the Environment tracks polluters of illegal dumping

Agents of security forces along with the Police of Environment of Mauritius are on the go for a few weeks.

They had strict instructions to track down polluters dumping their waste on fallow land, using dumps. The complaints are multiplying; the Mauritian Police decided to move up a gear and plans some operations to act against offenders who do not comply with the law on the environment.

Some serious offences which involve several officials who hide close to places suspected of illegal dumping and wait polluters to pass into action.

Last Friday at Pailles in the north of the island, an individual has incurred the cost of this police hunt on the ground while he was pouring of his van the rest of chicken carcasses and other trash.

The police intend to multiply their operations against environmental offenses in the days to come.
