Only Ashok Subron was heard in the 4 hours that Resistans ek Alternativ members remained at the Central Barracks and CCID premises on Thursday 12 May. Stephan Gua has been summoned by the Central Criminal Investigation Department on Friday 20 May. Resistans ek Alternativ promises great revelations!
They are accused of having organised an illegal demonstration against the current Prime Minister, Pravind Jugnauth in February 2017 during the handing over of power from the former Prime Minister, the late Sir Aneerood Jugnauth. At the time, Resistans ek Alternative had publicly denounced nepotism in the country through an operation called ‘Tappe Casseroles’, challenging the handover from father to son.
This investigation was reopened in 2019 but closed without follow-up. And this is precisely what Ashok Subron reproaches. “Why are they coming back to the charge 5 years later? The right to disagree is fundamental as is the right to demonstrate. We expect the CCID and the CP to bring out all the files on this matter.” Stephan Gua could not be heard due to lack of time and his session was therefore postponed to 20 May. Ashok Subron said during his press briefing in front of the Central Barracks, “that’s when we will have something to say. For now, we remain silent. I will only ask the public to think carefully about the why and draw their own conclusions”.
During their visit to the Central Barracks, the two members stopped at the office of the Police Commissioner to drop off a letter about the opening of an investigation they had requested following the handing over of the digital Kistnen Papers and an investigation into electoral fraud after the events in constituency 8.
