Horrific record of police violence in Mauritius

29.01.2018

The torture of Mr. David Daiqui, stripped naked, handcuffed and beaten up at Curepipe CID as witnessed and photographed by lawyer Anoup Goodary is a reminder of the horrific record of police violence in Mauritius.


Since 1979, at the time of the death in detention of Serge Victorine, LALIT has kept a register of deaths in police detention, based on deaths we hear about from families, from Press Reports and from National Human Rights Commission reports, when they were coming out.
