This report follows on the report by IHRC observer Osama Daneshyar entitled, ‘Equal in the Eyes of the Law: Police Brutality and the Abuse of Human Rights in Mauritius.’ The original report was written subsequent to a visit by Daneshyar to Mauritius to report on the situation of prisoners in 2001. He returned on an observer mission for IHRC in 2002 accompanied by journalist Faisal Bodi. This is Daneshyar’s update with specific reference to Cehel Meeah, the Mauritian politician currently detained by the authorities.
Daneshyar has since been appointed as Cehel Meeah’s barrister.
