Sir Anerood Jugnauth Confirms That Some Telephone Lines Are Tapped

The Prime Minister, Sir Anerood Jugnauth confirmed in the National Assembly last Tuesday, April 18 that some telephone lines are tapped; responding to a question from Labour Party MP, Shakeel Mohamed.

Sir Anerood Jugnauth however says that the police must obtain an order from a judge of the Supreme Court in order to place a person on listening; a person who is a threat.

Sir Anerood Jugnauth said police may, on five circumstances, ask the order of a judge of the Supreme Court to intercept communications of a person: the targeted person has to be a threat, either for the national security or to the public safety or public order, public morality and public health.

Once the order of a judge from the Supreme Court is received, the request is sent to the service provider to intercept communications of the concerned person.

Shakeel Mohamed alleges that the police now uses hyper sophisticated equipment with which, from a specific place, they can intercept oral conversations of a person. According to the Labour MP, these “secret agents” are circulating on board of a van.

To another question, Sir Anerood Jugnauth also indicates that the anti-corruption commission [ICAC] is investigating into the appointment of a human resources manager at the Bank of Mauritius (BoM).


And responding to another question from Shakeel Mohamed, Sir Anerood Jugnauth said that since 2014, 13 foreigners has received the Mauritian citizenship, eight of which have invested heavily in various sectors of the Mauritian economy.

Prime Minister, Sir Anerood Jugnauth, answering to another question, reveals that the National Transport Authority (NTA) has suspended the license of 25 drivers for “inappropriate behavior.”
