Mauritius Global Diaspora denounces IBA amendments to 30 int’l organizations

Published

The Mauritius Global Diaspora (MGD), based in the UK, has reportedly sent a letter to 30 international organizations to denounce the amendments made to the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) Act.

According to Defi Media, the recipients of the letter include Amnesty International, Reporters Sans Frontieres, International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and the Human Rights Foundation.

“We write to you today to denounce the assault on the Mauritian Constitution (Section 12. Freedom of Expression), and our people for which it is a matter of life or death to be able to access transparent information during this global pandemic,” MGD President Covilen Narsinghen was cited as writing.

In his letter, he argued that “there is an evident pattern here where we observe attempts by the state to control information and engage in repression (instead of debate) against those who disagree, or professionals whose role is to investigate issues for the truth to emerge.”
