Time to hurt Mauritius right back where it hurts, it’s tourism!! Irish to ban it as a holiday destination..
Disgraceful,poor family have gone through enough.Shame on Maruitius!
How much more pain and heartache do the Harte & Mc Areavey families have to go through after todays publication.The editor of the “Sunday Times” in Mauritius should be ashamed of himself for allowing such pictures to be published.Whoever gave the photographs to the paper should be prosecuted. The paper should put up a substantial award for the culprits to be brought to justice. Shame Shame.
There’s one apprporiate response for all right thinking Irish people to this: avoid Mauritius like the plague. That will hit them where it hurts, their main source of income;tourism.
Absolutely disgusting. I went to mauritius about 10 years ago and have always wanted to go back but i wouldn’t set foot there again after this. I’m not irish but i think ireland and the uk should refuse to go to mauritius.
All travel agents in Ireland should remove mauritius as a travel destination and all direct flights to this country should cease immediatelt that would hit them where it hurts and that seems to be the only way we shall get justice
Its a real shame having this kind of judicial system here!!! personally, me and my family are outraged by this judgement!!! Where the heck are we going in this country?! I’m a mauritian but HUMANITY COMES FIRST! still… i would say the government is to be blamed! and yeh, as far as the photographs are concerned, i strongly agree that those retards should be prosecuted!!! :@
Horrible horrible incident but why punish the majority for the actions of a few?
It disgusts our family that Mauritius newspaper are so insensitive by publishing these photos of a very special lady. Michaela can not rest in the peace she deserves while our country stands by and not defend her and also find justice for her. All of her family are in our prayers.
unlike alot of people i wasn’t angry that the 2 men were set free as i think the evidence against them was dodgy at best and i’d rather the real culprits were punished.
However this action by one of their newspapers is an utter disgrace, it shows the complete lack of respect they have for us as a people, it could also effect any future prosecution, i hope the Irish boycott Mauritius and i hope that we are not alone in doing so.
Of course what has happened in Mauritius is disgraceful. Are people really going to boycott a whole country because of the disgusting actions of some terrible individuals? Surely the Mauritians are as outraged as ourselves? There are bad people in every country, including our own. The Irish authorities are guilty of botching the murder investigation of french holiday maker Sophie Toscan du Plantier in exactly the same way as the Mauritian authorities. Thankfully the world didn’t boycott us…this would hurt the little man with a family to feed just as much in their country as in ours. Accountability and punishment should be dished out to the individuals responsible, not as a blanket punishment to an entire country, it’s simply illogical.
it’s not the judgement of their court or the actions of 1 or 2 evil people, it’s that their national newspaper can publish these pictures i have an issue with.
Until such time as the newspaper prints an apology and donates the proceeds from sales of that issue to charity i beleive a boycott is justified.
Perhaps if it’s the newspaper you have a problem with, you could just stop buying that particular paper, instead of boycotting the entire country?
thank god someone sees sense
i was about to jokingly suggest boycotting the restaurant “sultan” for the LULZ ,its run by people from mauritius.
and its got the finest pizza’s one could ever hope for
Well said boycott. There are bad individuals in every country, so why blame the whole country?? The irish legal system and gardai, have messed up very badly in plenty of cases in the past. This country would be finished altogether but for tourism, so anyone from ireland who mentions to boycott mauritius, is talking nonsense.
