Debates On Bruneau Laurette’s Parole Motion Resume Monday

Must Read

Bruneau Laurette’s request for bail will be debated this Monday and Tuesday, January 16th and 17th. Recall that on Monday, January 9, the activist Bruneau Laurette, had appeared before the court in Moka. The magistrate had announced that the hearing was only going to be pro forma, but that January 16 and 17 will be devoted to the application for parole of their client. It was also indicated that the police have already begun the procedure of checking the phones, computers, and bank accounts of the activist.

It should be recalled that this motion had been frozen on December 12 at the request of Bruneau Laurette himself. This decision was motivated by certain factors, including that of allowing the police the necessary time to continue their investigation and make the necessary verifications. As a reminder, Bruneau Laurette had initially refused to have his cell phones examined.

Pailleurs, the ‘ruling’ regarding his request to have the provisional charges dropped will be made public on January 20th.

It should be noted that Bruneau Laurette was arrested on November 4, 2022 and is in police custody. His house in Petit-Verger, Saint-Pierre, was searched by the Special Striking Team. More than 40 kilos of hashish were found in his BMW.

Bruneau Laurette and his son claim Rs 20 M from ASP Jagai

Two months after having served a formal notice, they return with a complaint in claim. Bruneau Laurette and his son, Jean Luca Ryan, have, on Thursday January 12, 2023, filed a complaint before the Supreme Court. They claim Rs 20 M of damages to the assistant superintendent of police Ashik Jagai and the Woman Police Inspector Sheila Narainen. This is because their lawyer could not meet them, as he was denied access. On November 4, 2022, Mr. Sanjeev Teeluckdharry, who had gone to the Central Barracks to represent Bruneau Laurette, had not been able to meet him. ASP Ashik Jagai reportedly forbade the lawyer to meet his clients, saying that he would also be questioned in the case.

In their complaint, father and son lament the fact that they did not have access to their respective lawyers after their arrest on November 4, 2022 and after their court appearance on November 5, 2022. They say they were upset and depressed when they learned that they would not be able to consult the lawyer of their choice, as he had been denied access.
