The latest missive from Transparency International gives us the following facts:

"This week, the outgoing US President Donald Trump made history by becoming the first president to be impeached twice... the Estonian Prime Minister resigned over a corruption investigation involving his party. Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu is not faring much better. Israel has been rocked by protests – spurred by the government's mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis and Netanyahu’s indictment for corruption – with calls for the Prime Minister to resign.  

In Belarus, protests have been raging for six straight months against President Alexander Lukashenko after he was declared winner of the dubious and heavily fettered presidential election in 2020. 
Bulgaria has also seen daily anti-government protests for months against corruption and state capture during the reign of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. In fact, state capture is a deeply troubling trend observed also in Georgia as well as Western Balkans and Turkey.  

Just this week, two former prime ministers in Algeria went on trial for corruption; in Romania, former prime minister is being investigated for suspected bribe-taking; and South Korea upheld former president Park Geun-hye's 20-year prison sentence for bribery. In France, in a landmark trial for corruption, former president Nicolas Sarkozy might be facing a four-year prison sentence, including a two-year suspended sentence for corruption and bribery." 

The article ends on a note of despair when it declares that "in far too many places around the world, grand corruption – abuse of high-level power to benefit the few at the expense of the many – goes unpunished...."

You would have to be either completely stupid or quite brainwashed from eating the left overs in la cuisine to not understand that Mauritius, our so called etat de droit, falls squarely into that category of countries where abuse of high level power to benefit the few at the expense of the many goes unpunished. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the state of Rule of Law in Mauritius is now in a state of emergency, where the police pick and choose which complaint to pursue diligently (and often with excessive power), and which ones to ignore completely...or to pretend to be 'etidier ban dossiers la."

You only have to look at the aggressive and way over the top attitude of the police towards the supporters of Madam Kistnen, and the red carpet they laid out for some vicious thugs to show their 'support' for a corrupt minister. If you or I kidnap a drunk idiot, undress him in a sugar cane field, beat him up, piss on him, threaten to chop off his arms, his legs, and his dick, force him to make insulting remarks about his own religion, you can bet your bottom dollar that Jangi and his merry men would have arrested us a long time ago, charged us, and asked the magistrates to refuse us release on bail. But as they are 'nou bann' and eat in the same la cuisine as Jangi, Servandersing, and the other useless senior police officers, you can rest assured that those gruesome bastards will be allowed to continue to pollute our atmosphere with their satanic breaths.. 

No sane person could possibly deny that since 2014, there has been a significant deterioration of respect for the principles of rule of law, democracy and fundamental rights, including the independence of the judiciary, separation of powers, the fight against corruption and freedom of the media. The State, i.e. the government, has captured ALL our institutions, and nominated zombies and yes men/women to take charge of them. These are people with no personality, no integrity, no code of conduct or ethics, no morality, often with mediocre qualifications, and who know only one thing: How much illegal money can they make during the next few years...

The mighty have fallen in many countries. In Mauritius, the mighty are programmed to say, in the highly unlikely event they are arrested, " Je suis serein! Zis Bon Dier koner ki mo inosan! Mo ene croyant, moi! Mo ene patriote!" Or in the case of the man at the top of the rotten pyramid, the PM, he would say, " Mo pou poursuiv zot! Mo amene zot la cour!" And the next step in his hysterical and melodramatic excess is wearing his kurta, making sure a socio kultchurel arse licker would drape yet another ludicrous rido over his shoulders, and saying" Zot pou koner ar moi! Zot pou bizin repon dan la cour!"...without mentioning the obvious thing that he too will bizin reponne dan la cour...

The mighty will never fall in Mauritius as long as we have a disgustingly incompetent idiot in charge of ICAC, and the police force is led by pathetic individuals who love to boir the dilo dire oui from la cuisine...
