Opposition Raises Concerns Over Constitutionality of Financial Crimes Commission Bill

The Financial Crimes Commission Bill, set to be presented in the National Assembly by Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth, is stirring controversy among the opposition in Mauritius.

The bill, which establishes a Financial Crimes Commission to replace the Independent Commission Against Corruption, is being criticised for its potential unconstitutionality and its implications for the powers of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Opposition leaders argue that the bill threatens the independence of the DPP by placing the office outside the purview of investigations into financial crimes.

They also express concerns about the concentration of power in the hands of a political nominee appointed by the Prime Minister, arguing that it could be used against political opponents.

The opposition leaders assert that the legislation undermines the separation of powers and call for a united front against its passage.
