Two journalists from a local privately owned radio station were sentenced yesterday for illegally entering a protected area adjacent to the property of the Mauritian Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam.
 
The two journalists must pay a bail of 5,000 rupees (131 euro) and are placed on conditional release for one year. In case of non-payment of the amount within 21 days, they incur one week in prison.
 
The journalists were investigating in June 2009 on the Kalimaye (Editor's note: Hindu Temple) of St. Paul, at the back of the property of the Mauritian Prime Minister, who, after a "noise pollution" denounced by the neighborhood had closed its doors, before reopening two weeks later.
