Mauritius: Sniffer dogs to detect cell phones in prisons of the island
After the discovery in late June by the Mauritian prison administration of twenty cell phones having allowed their owners to displayed on Facebook despite their incarceration or other inmates who were making phone calls at their leisure, the Commissioner of prisons, Jean Bruneau, announced that all prisons of the island will soon make use of sniffer dogs to detect the presence of mobile phones in the cells.
 
As a reminder, a large-scale excavation was well organized at the end of last month, in all prisons in Mauritius to stop definitively the phenomenon which was taking dangerous proportions for the safety and security of prisons.
28 mobile phones and 31 SIM cards were seized.
 
In addition, a new system of communications jamming, better than the one currently installed, will also be implemented in all Mauritian prisons and apparatus detecting mobile phones was also bought from Australia, to avoid further inconvenience, as relates the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius.
