The Supreme Court has decided to temporarily freeze the private prosecution entered against the Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth by the former Labour candidate Suren Dayal.

The latter has accused Jugnauth of perjury – for swearing a false affidavit on the expenses incurred during the 2019 general elections.

Supreme Court’s Chief Judge, Asraf Caunhye was quoted by Defi Media as stating that the private prosecution was being frozen until the court ruled on the Prime Minister’s motion to annul the private prosecution lodged by Dayal.

The plaintiff’s lawyers Antoine Domaingue and Roshi Bhadain reportedly did not object to the court’s decision. Debates on the Prime Minister’s motion will be heard next week.
