Robert Desvaux understood the reactions of the Irish after the murder of their compatriot Michaela Harte, murdered in Legends Hotel in Grand Gaube in January 2011. He argues, however, that despite the murder, the Irish have not stopped coming to Mauritius. Further arrangements had already been undertaken at the MTPA to lure Tourists from Ireland.
Irish MEP Sean Kelly, has asked his countrymen not to travel to Mauritius as long as justice is not done in the case Harte. “No justice for Michaela McAreavey in Mauritius. It is a massive indictment of Mauritius Authorities’ incompetence. No Irish should visit Mauritius Until justice is done yet, “he wrote on his Facebook page after the verdict at the Assizes, Thursday, July 12, paying Avinash Treebhoowon and Sandip Moneea. These, two former employees of the Legends Hotel, were charged with the murder of Michaela Harte. This teacher of 27 years was strangled in the bedroom she occupied at Legends January 10, 2011, according to the autopsy report.
