The claim, l’Express reported, is directed against President Prithvirajsing Roopun and the chair of the commission of inquiry, Judge Carol Green-Jokhoo and her assessors, Dr Pushpawant Boodhun and Kodados Mosafeer.

The State Trading Corporation and the Government of Mauritius compensated Betamax almost Rs6billion on June 22, 2021 after a favourable verdict from the Privy Council.
