Police were victim of a hoax on Thursday, June 23. After receiving a phone call indicating that an individual committed suicide at Corps De Garde mountain, the Camp-Levieux police went to the scene.
Elements of the Emergency Response Service in the Divisional Unit Supporting Western and Mauritian police intervention Grouping were called to the rescue. The police helicopter was also requested. But police later learned that the person they were looking for was walking in the Stanley area.
The man, already worried about a case of sex with a minor, went to a resident of Corps de Garde and told him that his friend threw himself from the mountain. He borrowed his mobile phone, claiming he was short of credit on his own. He called the police and gave his identity and that of his friend who committed suicide. He is wanted and risk an indictment in court.
