“La Police mwa!” 2 believe or not?

The world is becoming dangerous place to live in, including in mauritius where we have lots of abuse of power in the different sectors, especially when it concerns high status government officials or like here, in the Police Force…

We live in a country where most of us do not know our own rights… & those so called awareness programs do not really make us learn useful things that may save our skin in front of a government servant of any kind! Nevertheless till now, nothing concrete is done despite the different measures and legal “Standing orders” of the police force which stipulates that

  • Every police officer without any exception, should carry their warrant card
  • The Complete Uniform should be worn, else its a violation of law…

Recent happenings will and is surely going to raise a lot of questions of some practices in the Police Force, some of which include some incidents narrated in the newspapers the last weekend:

  • A young man approached by a “ADSU member” and was asked to hand over his belongings
  • a clash between a Juge, a deputy and a police officer….again here, we cant say who is to be blamed, as all of them are officers of the governement, hence, abuse their power!!!

Another useful thing…

You can at anytime ask the identity of any police officer to report him, if his name is not to be seen on his uniform, or if he declares to be one…

ASK HIM HIS WARRANT CARD!!!

Bribes…

Bribing is illegal, in any form, to anyone… If ever any Government Servant asks u a bribe in any way, u have the right to report him or produce strong evidence against him…

The next time, anyone stops u and claims to be a police officer, DO NOT BELIEVE THEM until they produce their warrant card and insist to be brought to a Police Station for any further inquiry, or search…

NO WARRANT CARD, NO POLICE OFFICER, even wiz their uniform

L’habit ne fait pas le moine !!!

Get them sacked for any power abuse !!

  • quid custodiet ipsos custodes ?
    This is the question that arise at the beginning of the democracy. Indeed, those who invented philosophy couldn’t have been so wrong in saying those words.

    For those who are too tired to google it.. quid custodiet ipsos custodes means, who will guard the guardians.
    Who will keep an eye on the policemen in Mauritius ?
    Who has the power to stop them ?
    Who has a hand on politicians ?

    Some might answer THE LAW.. very stupid answer..
    The law is the people not for the guardians. This is Mauritius. Paradise, mon cul !
