Britain urged to probe former Mauritius PM

  • Britain's anti-corruption investigators have been urged to probe former Mauritian prime minister Navin Ramgoolam after four million pounds ($6.4 million) in cash was discovered at his home earlier this year, a media report said. Senior government officials from Mauritius have asked the British government to order a National Crime Agency (NCA) investigation into the alleged corruption by the 68-year-old Indian-origin leader who holds a British passport. Ramgoolam was arrested in February this year after the discovery of the cash in a safe, three months after his surprise loss in a general election. (Source: IANS)
