Supreme Court Puisne Judge Mrs Carol Green-Jokhoo (photo) has been named as Chairperson a Commission of Inquiry into the Betamax Affair.

The Commission was appointed by the President of the Republic to inquire and report on the circumstances in which the contract for transport of petroleum products to Mauritius (Contract of Affreightment) was awarded to Betamax Ltd and the circumstances which subsequently led to the termination of the said contract.

Mauritius was forced to pay some Rs5.7billion to Betamax owner Vikram Bhunjun after the Privy Council upheld an earlier verdict of the Singapore Arbitration Court finding the government-owned State Trading Corporation guilty of breach of contract.

Dr Pushpawant Boodhun, former Permanent Secretary and Mr Kodados Mosafeer, former Director, Procurement and Supply, have been appointed as Commissioners.
