This is what barrister Jacques Panglose says. He represents Adrien Duval. Mr Panglose specified that his client did not submit a blood sample last night. The former MP’s vehicle collided with another car early yesterday evening. The driver of the other car was transported to Wellkin Hospital with injuries to her foot.
In addition, videos in circulation show the former blue MP in a state of inebriation. The occupants of the car, including Adrien Duval, were taken to the Rose-Hill police station. He told the police that his driver was driving his car, but the latter was nowhere to be found. He spent the night in detention, said Jacques Panglose. Adrien Duval recorded his statement this Thursday morning.
Former PMSD deputy Adrien Charles Duval, who turned 32 on Wednesday, September 21, is still admitted to the Wellkin Clinic in Moka following an accident in which his car was involved on the same day. It was on the Ebene highway after the Mattar bridge in the direction of Bagatelle that this accident occurred. His white Mercedes collided with a Suzuki car driven by a 56-year-old woman from Valentina, Phoenix. The woman suffered minor injuries. The impact of the collision was so severe that the car was thrown onto a construction site with all four wheels in the air after rolling several times. An individual who was leaning against the Mercedes was questioned if he was the one driving, but he remained silent. At the Rose-Hill Police Station, he was given a breathalyzer test which came back positive. He had sixty-four micrograms of alcohol in his breath, and Adrien Duval refused to submit to the test. If this man spent the night in a drunk tank, the former deputy opted to be admitted in a clinic where he was placed under police surveillance.
Shortly before 7:00 p.m., police officers from the Rose Hill Police Station arrived at the scene of the accident. The grey Suzuki with the four wheels in the air was found on a construction site. About fifty meters from this location on the highway, Adrian Duval’s Mercedes was parked on the side of the road. Luciano Arnaud William Martin, 32 years old, an independent consultant and resident of Pereybère, was leaning against the car. When asked if he was behind the wheel of the vehicle, he remained silent. Adrien Duval was also present at this place.
Luciano Martin was taken to the police station. He was joined shortly thereafter by his lawmen, Mes Kushal Lobine and Alexandre Leblanc. Adrien Duval arrived at the police station accompanied by Me Jacques Panglose and Ashley Ramdass. Adrien Duval and Luciano Martin exercised their right to silence.
Adrien Duval was ticketed for refusing to take a breathalyzer test, refusing to give a blood sample or two urine samples and driving with an alcohol concentration over the prescribed limit. Luciano Martin tested positive on the breathalyzer. He had sixty-four micrograms of alcohol in his breath. He was charged with driving over the legal limit. He was placed in a sobering cell at the Rose Hill Police Station. Adrien Duval, who was also to be admitted to the drunk tank, was admitted to the Wellkin Clinic.
