Ameenah Gurib Fakim interpelle SAJ dans une lettre ouverte

Rédigé par E. Moris le Vendredi 15 Janvier 2021

L'ancienne présidente de la République a réagi sur les réseaux sociaux,  à la suite d'un entretien donné dans un organe de presse par l'ancien ministre mentor, Sir Anerood Jugnauth. 

Son attention a été interpellée, selon elle, sur une déclaration où SAJ déclare ′′ Il faut compter la conclusion d'une enquête avant de dire "dimounn la fout lekan ale".. AGF se demande où était cette morale en 2018 lors du Conseil des Ministres, où SAJ a approuvé la création d'un tribunal pour la virer du Château de Réduit. 

Open letter to the Past Minister Mentor, Past Prime Minister, Past President of the Republic - Sir Anerood Jugnauth

This morning I read with great interest the interview given by your good self in a daily newspaper.
My attention was drawn to one highlighted comment "Il faut attendre la conclusion d'une enquete avant de dire 'dimounn la fout lekan ale'.. in english it means 'one has to wait for the conclusion of the enquiry before one can ask someone to step down'..

Now Sir I have the following observations to make:

- Where was this high moral standing in 2018 when the Press had illegally leaked my bank details and you defended me on an evening of 3rd March 2018, to the press by saying that 'if she had used a credit card and has reimbursed.. where is the problem'.
- However, the week after, you were party to the Council of Ministers, chaired by then and present Prime Minister, approving the setting up of a tribunal to throw me out of Office and this is in spite of you knowing full well the entire story that I had shared with you, him and the Deputy PM telling you all that there was no issue as I had refunded everything ONE year before this illegal leak.
- Neither yourself nor the PM or DPM deemed it fit to inform the Police to do an inquiry into this leak.
- Where were you when after that Council of Minister you came to the State House and demanded my resignation and went the extra mile to tell me NOT to appear in front of the Tribunal on the basis that 'people will say all sorts of things on me in a Tribunal' so it is best that I 'go away quietly'...

As a seasoned lawyer, you knew full well that a Tribunal was the only legal recourse that there was to remove a sitting President - provided that there was substance to that removal. The entire population and the press was then having their own schadenfraude Sir and I was their target..

You were also party to that same team that drafted and approved the Terms of Reference for a Commission of Inquiry on me!!.. 

So I can safely say that you were then party to that same team that had pronounced me guilty until to be proven innocent... after the COI? may be?.. I have been waiting THREE years now Sir!.. 

As a lawyer, you will also appreciate that Justice delayed is Justice denied...
So please spare us the moral high ground when it comes to members of your son's team..
Respect is earned when the same principles are applied to EVERY citizen in the country.. NOONE is above the law..

Thank you.
Ameenah Gurib-Fakim
Past President of the Republic of Mauritius
