The Full Bench of the Supreme Court sitting on appeal two weeks ago has set aside the appeal lodged by drugs trafficker, L.D.L. Fangamar, who is presently serving a 26-year penal servitude after he was found guilty by the Assises Court of traffic of 3617 grams of cannabis under the Dangerous Drugs Act 2000 (DDA).
One week after the Presiding Judge of the Assises Court, Benjamin Marie Joseph, has set aside the motion of “no case to answer of counsel for the defense, Mr Siv Potayya, the accused, Avinash Ramgotee, a former student of the University of Mauritius, has been found guilty by a majority of the jury of 8 to 1, guilty of the double assassination of the two sisters-in-law, Indira and Asah Jhurry, at Basruth Lane, Lallmatie on 5 January 2006 and convicted accordingly to 37 years penal servitude under each of the two counts of information. However the culprit will serve concurrently the two terms of imprisonment. The 30 days accused passed on remand and the 30 days in police cell will be deducted from the sentence.
In a well motivated judgment delivered last week the Appeal Court, having on the bench Justices Nalini Matadeen and Saheed Bhaukaurally, has quashed the sentence passed by the Intermediate Court convicting Gopalen Pillay Curpen to a fine of Rs 1,000 and remitted the case back to the Magistrate, who presided over the criminal case, to determine the matter and this taking into account all the sentencing options available under the law. Based on this conclusion, the bench made no order as to costs.
