Mauritius: The President of the Red Cross in the crosshairs of the other leading members of the association for abuse of power
Seven leader members of the Red Cross in Mauritius accuse the current President Oormeela Jawaheer, abuse of power and decided in early October to bring the case before the Supreme Court.

The plaintiffs want the Mauritian justice demote from office of the President and it has no more responsibility within the Red Cross Mauritius, and, pending the election of the new board.

The plaintiffs allege that Oormeela Jawaheer have removed one by one "several influential members of the" Red Cross shortly after his election in February 2011 and have placed him close to her people.

They regret this attitude is contrary to the principles of neutrality issued by the association, as related by the newspaper L’Express of Mauritius.

"Oormela Jawaheer also intimidates people who stood against its decisions. She claims to have contacts at the highest level of the Labour Party," say the complainants accusing him of having taken action without prior consultation with the Board administration.

The scheduled trip of the daughter of the current president, appointed delegate of the Red Cross during the General Assembly of the International Federation in Sydney in November, is also highly critical in terms of "ethics."

For its part, Oormeela Jawaheer totally rejects all accusations and argues that the International Committee of the Red Cross is fully "satisfied with the work done by the Mauritian branch."
