Court rejects case by Telecoms boss against lawyer

Published

on

The District Court of Rose Hill has annulled the provisional charge of ‘Breach of Information and Communications Technologies Act’ (ICTA) against lawyer Akil Bissessur after the office of the Director of Public Prosections (DPP) asserted that there was “no legal basis for a provisional charge to subsist.”

Bissessur had posted a video on Facebook entitled “Unexplained wealth – rags
to riches”
– hitting at Sherry Singh, CEO of Mauritius Telecom.

Sherry Singh had filed a complaint against Akil Bissessur for trying to discredit him on a professional and personal level.

The lawyer had questioned Singh’s rapid wealth, since the MSM party took power, arguing how the new CEO of MT moved from a low-cost apartment of the National Housing Development Company (NHDC) to a house valued at Rs 110 million in a posh residential area in Ebene.

“This is an investigation that concerns a political nominee, close to power and politicians. The police didn’t even take the time to verify whether Sherry Singh had legally acquired his properties. They simply proceeded to arrest our client without a full investigation,”  Bissessur’s lawyers claimed.
