Former Bank of Mauritius Governor Rundheersing Bheenick is reportedly suing the State, the Police Commissioner and Heman Jangi, Head of the Central CID for Rs50million. The case was called on Monday before the Supreme Court but has been postponed for next year.

Rundheersing Bheenick acted as Governor of the BoM three times, from February 2007 to February 2010, from May 2010 to May 2013, and from May 2013 to December 2014. The new MSM-led government terminated its employment soon after the 2014 general elections.

He had alleged that Heman Jangi had pressured him to hire his daughter. She was eventually employed at the BoM after his departure.

Bheenick was also eventually arrested over allegations that he had “misappropriated files of the Bank.”

In 2015, CCID officers searched his residence and seized documents belonging to the bank as well as foreign currency.

He was provisionally charged for money laundering and possession of BoM documents.

In May 2016, the case was dismissed.
