Linion Pep Morisien (LPM) organized a peaceful demonstration in the streets of the Capital yesterday, Saturday 18 March. Linion Pep Morisien held a demonstration around the theme, “No to the mafia in the institutions” in the streets of Port-Louis this Saturday.
Indeed, one of its leaders, Dev Sunnasy, was arrested because some of the posters displayed throughout the country did not mention the name of the printer. As a result, the platform’s offices in Port Louis and Rose Hill were searched.
Two weeks earlier, the police had arrested several members of the LPM following their demonstration in front of the Central Barracks. All of this had created tremendous publicity for Sunnasy’s group.
A letter was dropped off at the Prime Minister’s office to draw his attention to the drug trade. As for Dev Sunnasy, he was more vocal in his speech.
One of the members of the LPM was arrested by plainclothes police officers during the peaceful demonstration in Port-Louis on Saturday, March 18. One of the police officers had to argue that the demonstrator was under the influence of alcohol, and he was taken away by one of the police officers, who was following the procession closely. His arrest angered other members of the LPM.
Dev Sunnassy later asked lawyer and LPM member José Moirt to go to the Central Barracks to get more information about the situation.
Neena Ramdenee, for her part, denounced what she called “the PM’s inaction since 2015 to put the mafia out of business.”
