Mauritius PM before Supreme Court to refute allegation of perjury

Published

on

PM Pravind Jugnauth, who has been accused for perjury – ‘swearing a false affidavit’ – will face the full bench of the supreme Court on November 11 where his motion to dismiss the private prosecution lodged against him will be debated.

The private prosecution against the PM and leader of the MSM-ruling party has been lodged Suren Dayal, a Labour Party candidate at the 2019 general elections.

Dayal has accused Jugnauth of lying on his electoral expenses.

According to Dayal, who was running for elections in the same constituency, Jugnauth declared that he only spent Rs 124,333 for the elections.

However, records of all expenses incurred by Jugnauth’s MSM party were allegedly recorded in the personal diary of late Soopramanien Kistnen, the main political activist of the party who was found murdered last year.

According to the said records, the MSM allegedly spent more than Rs 4 million for the election campaign in Jugnauth’s constituency in 2019.
