[Local News] Private Jet: HASSENJEE RUHOMALLY Lodges Complaint Against SHOWKUTALLY SOODHUN With ICAC

Hassenjee Ruhomally has decided to lodge a complaint against the Deputy Prime Minister to the Independent Commission Against Corruption [ICAC] on Thursday 4 August.

Hassenjee Ruhomally calls for an investigation as to whether Showkutally Soodhun paid the cost of his trip back after he went on a mission to Saudi Arabia Friday on 29 July. Showkutally Soodhun returned home on Wednesday 3 August aboard a private jet.

Hassenjee Ruhomally went at the headquarters of the ICAC at Ébène in the company of his lawyer Akil Bissessur Thursday afternoon August 4 at.

Akil Bissessur asked a series of questions in a statement to Radio Plus:

« Mon client [Hassenjee Ruhomally] a fait ressortir dans sa déposition à l’Icac que Showkutally Soodhun est parti en Arabie saoudite vendredi 29 juillet à bord d’un “commercial jet”. One can not enter Saudi Arabia with a single ticket. He should have had his return ticket. But he did not come home on a commercial flight.

« Est-ce que Showkutally Soodhun a payé son vol retour ? De plus, le vice-Premier ministre dit qu’il ne se sentait pas bien. Mon client se demande s’il y avait vraiment urgence. Pourquoi n’a-t-il pas utilisé les contacts qu’il dit avoir avec la famille royale pour se faire traiter en Arabie saoudite ? »

Showkutally Soodhun was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon 3 August following pain associated with sciatica. He justified his return to the country by private jet with his bad health. He said he felt pain in his mission to Saudi Arabia:

« Vu que les douleurs me tenaillaient de temps en temps, mon homologue saoudien avait insisté pour que je retourne directement à l’île Maurice au lieu de faire le transit à Dubaï sur Emirates » he said.

Showkutally Soodhun explains that a few hours after returning home he began to experience back pain that did not allow him to attend the proceedings of the National Assembly:

« Dans l’après-midi, c’était insoutenable. Je n’avais pas d’autre alternative que de me rendre à l’hôpital. Après diagnostic, le médecin m’a conseillé de rester en observation » says Showkutally Soodhun.
