The Frenchman Mathieu Blondeau was sentenced last Thursday of 20 years of imprisonment for illicit importation of subutext (heroin substitute) to Mauritius.

His lawyer Zakir Mohamed has decided to fight in order to make his client return to France as quickly as possible to serve his prison sentence, as relates l’ "Even if there is no treaty (note: Between Mauritius and France), a French prisoner may request to return to his country. I will make this in six months with the embassy",
said Zakir Mohamed.

"The Beau-Bassin jail is hell ... I leave it to you to imagine what the21-years blue-eyed blonde living there"

"The Beau-Bassin jail is hell. The addicts, perverts, severe beatings ... Mathieu has countless of fractures and hospital stays. Few years ago, a prisoner, a tough guy that I visited, burst into tears like a child: "Sir Counsel, I beg you, let me out of this hell." He was a criminal, a Mauritian of fifty years. I let you imagine what the 21 years blue-eyed blond is living there", says Zakir Mohamed.
As a reminder, 9844 Subutex tablets were seized in the personal belongings of Mathieu Blondeau, in March 2011, upon his arrival at the international airport, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam of Plaisance by the customs authorities of Mauritius.
The resale of drugs in the local market is estimated at 15 million rupees or 394,000 euros.
Mathieu Blondeau had also testified in favor of his ex-girlfriend Katia Terminet who accompanied him on this trip to Mauritius and has regained freedom at the end of November 2012.
