Hausse de 10 % du prix du gaz ménager

La décision a été prise par le Conseil des ministres ce vendredi 2 mars. Le prix du gaz ménager accuse une hausse de 10 % avec effet immédiat.  Ainsi, le prix de la bonbonne de 12 kg passe de Rs 300 à Rs 330.

Le Conseil des ministres explique dans son communiqué que cette majoration est inévitable car le prix du gaz ménager a considérablement augmenté sur le marché international. « La dernière fois que le prix du gaz ménager a été revisé, c’était en 2008. A l’époque, ce produit coûtait US$ 450 la tonne alors que le mois dernier, il coûtait US$ 1, 187 la tonne », indique le communiqué.

C’est décidé ! L’Association des consommateurs de l’île Maurice (l’Acim) contestera en Cour suprême la taxe de Re 1.50 imposée sur chaque litre de boisson non alcoolisée. L’annonce a été faite ce vendredi 2 mars par le secrétaire général de l’Acim, Jayen Chellum, lors d’une conférence de presse.

Cette taxe est entrée en vigueur le 28 décembre dernier. Il s’agit d’une des mesures du Budget présenté par le ministre des Finances, Xavier-Luc Duval, en novembre dernier. « Cette taxe est entrée en vigueur en catimini et nos hommes de loi nous ont fait savoir que nous avons de bonnes raisons de la contester en justice. Le ministère a agi de façon ultra vires (au-delà des pouvoirs) », explique Jayen Chellum.

He fears for the welfare of the population, for the security of the state, that justice is weakening, fears that politics remain the same and… for his own life. “As a citizen I throw a critical eye on Mauritius and observe that things are not at tune with peace, justice and harmony,” he told a press conference at his house in Belle Terre on Wednesday. “It is a year since an act of arson was committed in the yard of my house. On 1st of March 2011, my car, my nephew’s vehicle and partly my own house were put on fire by arsonists.
