Labour MP storms at government’s inaction over ‘Pandora Papers’

Published

on

Labour Party MP Arvin Boolell has severely condemned government for “sitting idle” in wake of the revelations of the Pandora Papers published by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) last week pinning down prominent Mauritian personalities allegedly involved in large financial frauds.

“The silence and opacity of the government on the revelations of the ICIJ Pandora Papers, in a way, condemns the Mauritian global business jurisdiction and the government itself,” he was quoted as saying in the local media.

“Stupidity”, “Irresponsible” and “hiding the truth” were the words used by Dr Boolell to describe the government’s “lethargic and apathic posture”.

He called for the setting up of a High- Level Committee to investigate the allegations.
The Minister of Financial Services and Good Governance, Mahen Seeruttun, said that a “lack of information” is preventing the authorities to start an investigation.

“So far, we have heard the names of only two personalities who might have been involved in suspicious financial transactions. There is very little information available. We do not even know what kind of information are there in the Pandora Papers,” he added.

He claimed the government will not hesitate to launch an enquiry, “if the need is felt.”
