Tension is said to be mounting in several quarters as police move to question politicians and social activists who participated in a peaceful demonstration in support to the Palestinian people last Sunday.

Defi Media reported that Opposition MP Eshan Juman (Labour) has been summoned to the Central Criminal Investigation Department this Monday to “explain his presence” at the demonstration, which according to the police was “illegal.”

Defi Media said social activist Bruneau Laurette will also be quizzed by CCID officers on Monday. So far, four people have been quizzed, namely lawyers Rama Valayden and Shahzad Mungroo, Noorani Aurdally, Juman’s constituency clerk, and Sheik Mucktar Hussenboccus, former Lord Mayor of Port Louis and currently the constituency clerk of another Labour MP Osman Mohamed.

On the other hand, Le Mauricien reported that police have also initiated an enquiry into another demonstration, a parade of around 100 cars and motorcycles in the streets of Port Louis on Tuesday evening – again in support to the Palestinian people.

No incidents were recorded, but the parade was again described as “illegal.” Police claimed the participants drove past the National Assembly while it was still in session.

During the week, police took to task several trade unionists protesting against Government’s “pro-Israeli stand“.

Foreign Affairs Minister Alan Ganoo said the Government did not intend to sever ties with Israel, despite calls from several civil rights NGOs.
