Published

on

The upsurge of the coronavirus has seriously disrupted the calendar of judicial institutions.

Technically, court activities should not have been affected with recent restrictions.

However, Le Mauricien newspaper reported that a significant number of defendants, lawyers, clerks, witnesses and others were tested positive for COVID-19 and are in self-isolation.

So far, over 20 cases have been postponed for next year, including the hearings into three electoral petitions contesting the 2019 general elections results in constituencies 1, 15 and 19.
