MP Chand cleared of any criminal charges

Thursday, February 08, 2018

Update: 1:20PM OPPOSITION Member of Parliament Parmod Chand will not be charged for an alleged case of sedition.

A statement issued by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution said DPP Christopher Pryde had decided that no charges would be laid against Mr Chand.

�There is insufficient reliable evidence to support any criminal charges against Mr Chand and, therefore, the docket has been returned to Police,� Mr Pryde said.

Mr Chand was arrested by Police and interviewed under caution on December 8 last year on suspicion of committing seditious offences.

He is alleged to have made seditious comments at a shop in Delailabasa on August 14 last year.
