Sherry Singh case: A very short Act IV

The former CEO of Mauritius Telecom returned to the CCID on Wednesday afternoon with his lawyer, Mr Gavin Glover. The questioning was very short and without any confirmation of the next session.

It seems that the investigators are running out of questions to ask my client. This makes us even more serene in the turn of events,” delivered Mr. Gavin Glover, full of sarcasm. On Tuesday 19th July, the CCID presented Sherry Singh with two letters from the PMO, which were dated 21 October 2021 and 22 December 2021, as well as a Request for Information on Baie-du-Jacotet Landing Station. These are the same documents that Mr. Gavin Glover had delivered, “we were presented with some documents, and we were a little surprised that a citizen was allowed to use them. The police will decide what to do”.

The next session has not yet been officially announced. It is considered that Act V will take place next week.
