PM says 'NO' to Commission of Inquiry on cops' torture videos

Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth has refused to set up a Full Fledged Commission of Inquiry into the torture by police officers against crime suspects.

“It is neither justified nor necessary” he told Parliament in response to the Private Notice Question (PNQ) of the leader of the opposition, Xavier-Luc Duval.

Jugnauth said the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) set up in 2017 by his government has already initiated an investigation.

As a result, a Commission of Inquiry “will lead to duplication” and “will be time-consuming.”

The PM pointed out that he has been informed by the Commissioner of Police, Anil Kumar Dip, that five cases of torture have been reported to the police, and all have referred to the IPCC.

So far, six police officers were arrested and suspended. One of them was released on bail on Thursday.
