She called the police on the evening of Wednesday, March 15 to report her partner, who was looking for trouble with her. She says she stayed outside the house to avoid him. But she was reluctant at first to open the door of her house. When police officers gained access inside, they saw a woman with a bloodstained face lying on a couch in the living room. The floor and the wall of this area were covered with blood. When questioned, the 36 year old victim had to declare that it was the singer, Marjorie Seevraz, who hit her. The latter, aged 46, who became known in the musical field with the song, “Ton Philippe”, rejected this accusation saying, “li ki finn tapp mwa”.
It was around 11:00 p.m. that police officers from the police station of Casernes Centrales went to the street Mgr Leen, Port-Louis following a request made by Marjorie Seevraz. The fifty-year-old woman had to confide in the police officers that her partner, who lives in the same area, was looking for trouble with her and to avoid the situation getting out of hand, she preferred to stay outside. The police officers then asked her to open the door of the house so that they could access it. If Marjorie Seevraz was reluctant at first, she, however, opened the door of the house.
The police were to find her partner lying on a couch with her face stained with blood. The wall and the floor of the living room were covered with blood. When questioned, the victim had to tell the police with great difficulty that it was Marjorie Seevraz who hit him. An ambulance of the Service d’Aide Médicale d’Urgence was requested to transport her to the Dr. A.G. Jeetoo Hospital, Port-Louis, because she was in a bad condition.
The police officers found that both women were stinking of alcohol. Although Marjorie Seevraz did not have any injuries, both her hands had traces of blood on them. A policewoman was called to the address to inform the alleged aggressor of her rights and the charge against her, at which time she stated, “li ki finn tapp mwa”.
The police seized two pieces of wood measuring 20 and 24 centimeters respectively as evidence. Marjorie Seevraz was brought before the Port-Louis court this Thursday morning, March 16, where she was charged with one count of aggravated assault. She was then taken to the police station in Pailles.
