The Financial Crime Commission Bill, presented for its first reading this Tuesday in the National Assembly, was brought up by the Prime Minister on Monday afternoon during the inauguration of a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) in Sainte-Croix.
He stated that this bill should not intimidate those with “clean hands.”
“We are introducing a law and some say they are the target,” said the Prime Minister. Pravind Jugnauth added that no one should fear this law if they within the legal parameters.
The Prime Minister also responded to opposition criticism regarding the MUGA project, which has been referred to as a “white elephant.”
He expressed his pride that his government is investing in the future of the youth and encouraged the population to engage in regular physical activities for good health.
Regarding the re-registration of SIM cards, Pravind Jugnauth assured that it is not a surveillance measure, but rather a recommendation from the report of the Commission of Inquiry on drugs chaired by former judge Paul Lam Shang Leen. He labeled the opposition as “bad losers.”
