Oceans Edge, Man To Man et Blood Buccaneer sont les chevaux que nous avions repérés la dernière fois. Longtemps aperçu en avant-dernière position, Oceans Edge avait été gêné à 300 mètres du but, mettant son jockey en déséquilibre.

For the first time in the history of Mauritius, a political party led by a woman is born. This woman is no less than Professor Sheila Bunwaree – a source of inspiration, a monument of knowledge, a lover of peace and stability, a woman with great ideals, a visionary but with a large dose of pragmatism. She has trained generations of students and scholars in the field of economics and sociology.

She has often encouraged us to have critical appreciation her own work and that of others.

“I could hardly believe  my ears when, at 10.32 a.m. on Friday 16 July, only a few minutes after he had finished his arguments as to why Mrs. Jogee should not be deported until the determination of the case which she intended to lodge before the Supreme Court, Mr. Hawaldar, who had been appointed at public expense, burst into my Chambers to say that he had just been informed that his client had been deported the night before”, such was the opening paragraph in the judgment of  Jogee & Medagama  v Government of  Mauritius, Prime Minister and Passport and Immigration 1993 MR 133 delivered by  Robert Ahnee  Justice as he  unfurled his furore against the Respondents for what he described as contemptuous behaviour  vis –a-vis the court, a usurpation of the powers of the Judge in Chambers and a violation of  the independence  of the judiciary.  Soon after delivering judgment, he submitted his resignation.

Mauritius stands at a very challenging phase of its economic history as it has to forge its future on a new paradigm.  For almost two centuries our trade relations as well as the framework of our economic development have been based on a North-South axis.  This model is no longer relevant in the new global economic environment which keeps on evolving rapidly.

La dernière édition de MCB Focus, publié à la mi-journée par le MCB Group, met l’accent sur les facteurs susceptibles de porter Maurice dans la voie de la High Income Economy. En même temps, l’analyse de la MCB fait preuve de scepticisme quant à la possibilité que cet objectif pourra être atteint d’ici 2020, ambition caressée par le gouvernement et définie dans le discours du Budget 2014.

May 1814, Reverend Jean Lebrun arrived in Mauritius at the age of twenty-five after completing his three-year training as a missionary at the London Missionary Society (LMS) Training Academy of Gosport, in the South of England. He had courses in theology and pedagogy, as the main motto of all missionary societies was “Preach and Teach “. He was lectured by Dr Bogue, an Edinburgh trained linguist, in Malagasy and was able to perfect his French. All missionary societies preferred the use of the mother tongue for evangelization work. Initially it seems that the LMS wanted Lebrun to practice in Madagascar.

24th June: my sister’s birthday. It’s four o’clock in the afternoon, Dad is getting back home from work and decides to draw some additional funds from the ATM close to Victoria bus station at Port Louis, to buy her a gift. He stows the money in his purse, which he zips into his shoulder bag before making his way to the bus station where he boards a vehicle going to Rose Hill.

On the 12th May 2014, the Parliament of the Republic of Mauritius lived its 20th prorogation since independence. Much has been said lately about prorogation. This term is not a common one. Therefore it is understandable that the lay man finds it unintelligible and nebulous.

In fact ‘prorogation’, which is simply a parliamentary mechanism, terminates all business pending before the House until Parliament is summoned again. To fully understand the term prorogation, it is important to undertake a brief incursion in our parliamentary system.

La présentation de  The Constitution (Declaration of Community) (Temporary Provisions) Bill, vendredi, à l’Assemblée nationale, est considérée comme étant décisive dans l’élimination de l’obligation de la déclaration communale des candidats à des élections générales. Ce résultat est la conséquence de la lutte menée en grande partie par Rezistans ek Alternativ que ce soit devant les instances compétentes à Maurice ou à l’étranger au cours de ces dernières années.

Toutefois, avant d’atteindre cette étape, la lutte contre la classification communale des candidats s’est étalée sur plusieurs phases, au fil des années.

Mauritius, along with 14 other developing nations, according to a World Bank study on 215 countries carried out by research analyst Ehiwario Efeyini of the US Trust Bank of America Wealth Management, has the potential to graduate to the elite club of high-income economies. Indeed Mauritius, on the basis of its present model of development and policies, can easily increase its wealth in the years ahead but it is also likely that it may not make the transition and get trapped into the so-called “middle income trap” as pointed out by Efeyini. South Africa and Brazil, for example, have been languishing for decades within the middle-income range. Countries trapped at middle-income level usually have declining investment ratios, slow manufacturing growth, limited industrial and export diversification, and poor labour market conditions. Our research analyst did suggest that though the 14 countries have the potential to make it to the high-income status, they must however create the conditions for a more competitive, entrepreneurial and productive economy.

Once America has embarked on any enterprise the whole World follows blindly without analysing the facts and measuring the consequences whether intended or not.... Same for the issue of drugs.

Once America has embarked on any enterprise the whole World follows blindly without analysing the facts and measuring the consequences whether intended or not.... Same for the issue of drugs.
In 1971 President Nixon declared war (World!) on drugs. The World followed...Conventions, Laws, Regulations, Budgets, Treaties between countries and so many other legal instruments have been voted and are voted to try to win a war which does more harm than save the World.
What have been the effects of that deleterious war?

The number plate was a recent legacy from Brazilian security which in the wake of the World Cup had been honed by the C.I.A. (to the extent that Brazilians allow themselves to be honed).

In the evening of Thursday 12 June 2014, the MBCTV showed images of our Prime Minister attending a ceremony during which he laid the first stone for a new university campus at Pamplemousses. As soon as the Prime Minister stepped out of his car, an old man was made to offer him a garland of flowers after which the same man bent down and touched the Prime Minister's feet. Another elderly gentleman clad in a red coat went down on his knees and also touched the Prime Minister's feet while the Prime Minister was entering the hall where the ceremony was being held. Following on the example set by the new Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi; Dr Navin Ramgoolam should ban such gestures because these smack of sycophancy (lèche-bottes or roder bout in Mauritian language).

Hills Of Rome, Strum, Black Gambit, Mighty Mars, Dust In The Wind, Kimberly Al et Streetbouncersont les chevaux que nous avions repérés. Hills Of Romeavait suivi plus en retrait que prévu à sa rentrée et avait encore perdu sa position en début de descente suite à une bousculade. Il avait été contraint d’attendre la fin du dernier tournant pour se mettre en évidence à la corde. Strumparaîssait moins enrobé à l’heure des présentations. Il avait dû faire un effort afin de ne pas se laisser prendre de vitesse par l’accélération du leader à 600m de l’arrivée, mais s’était montré accrocheur pour la troisième place. Black Gambitavait réalisé une fin de course honorable pour échouer à moins de deux longueurs du gagnant bien qu’il évoluât en épaisseur. Mighty Marsavait suivi à un peu plus de 2L du meneur qui était parti sur des bases élevées. Il avait fait impression à l’entrée de la ligne droite, mais n’avait pas prolongé son effort. Dust In The Windavait pris un départ quelconque pour se retrouver en avant-dernière position. Avait été lancé dans la ligne droite finale, mais avait été gêné par Brandewynà 200 mètres de l’arrivée. Puis 150 mètres plus loin il avait dû être dirigé à l’intérieur afin d’éviter Power Divequi l’avait incommodé sur la fin. Kimberly Al avait été sévèrement bousculé au 1000m pour se retrouver en sixième épaisseur avant d’être encore incommodé au bas de la descente. Il avait néanmoins terminé plaisamment pour accrocher la deuxième place.Streetbounceravait pris un départ quelconque pour se retrouver plus en retrait que prévu. Il avait bien terminé, mais s’était contenté de la quatrième place.

 Deferred Prosecution Agreements were introduced in the United Kingdom by Schedule 17 of the  Crime and Courts Act 2013.  The introduction of DPAs in the UK is one of the most significant steps taken in recent  years to track serious economic crime.  The UK Director of Public Prosecutions and the Director of the Serious Fraud  Office have recently published a joint code of practice on the use of DPAs which are set to become part of the prosecutorial toolkit, which supplements the recently published sentencing Council’s “Definitive Guideline” o
