Five Ukrainians and a Brazilian were arrested in the early hours of the morning of Saturday October 1 when they were nude. The police indeed raided the Gentlemen’s Club in Flic en Flac where they caught the women “red-handed” while they were performing pole dance numbers.
As for the owner of the club Popo Hazareesing, he will be heard by investigators tomorrow on Monday October 3. The followers of leafing will be deported next week since they have not met their conditions of stay, says a police source.
In fact, Krystyna Panuishkina, Elmyra Hasanova, Vika Lipinska, Alisa Tyvoniuk Anna Dubynka and Jessel Monique Loryano posed in scantily clad for a poster that invited customers to visit this event. They arrived in Mauritius two months ago with their pocket tourist visa. Their hosting letters indicate that these young women are aged between 18 and 25 years and they live in Floreal at the home of the owner of the club.
“Mais elles logeaient dans un appartement à Flic-en-Flac, non loin du club où elles ont été interpellées,” said one investigator. After the police raid, the “strippers” were interviewed. “Elles ont affirmé qu’elles n’ont pas été rémunérées pour ces numéros, mais nous avons des informations qui indiquent le contraire,” said a police source. The six “strippers” were then allowed to return to their apartment which was placed under surveillance.
As for Popo Hazareesing, he will go to the police station of Rose Hill accompanied by his lawyer Mr. Rouben Mooroongapillay tomorrow to complete his testimony that was partly made on Saturday morning.
Meanwhile, asked for a reaction yesterday, his lawyer said that “there is nothing illegal about this activity. That is why there has been no arrest. ” The police, he said, wanted to “clarify issues in relation to complaints.”
The legal representative of Popo Hazareesing further contends that these girls are tourists “who were only enjoying their holiday” and they will leave the country once they have completed their stay in Mauritius. “There is no issue of deportation. They will leave in a few days.”
