GIS - 08 December, 2015: The implementation of the twenty-three recommendations of the report on the Commission of Enquiry on Horse Racing submitted to the Government of Mauritius in March this year was at the fore of discussions today at the Treasury Building.
The two Commissioners appointed to draft the report, namely Mr Benn Gunn and Mr Paul Scotney, met the Prime Minister, Sir Anerood Jugnauth, with whom they elaborated on the way forward to put in place the priority recommendations of the report.
In a statement, Mr Benn Gunn announced that as from January 2016 and for the next six months they will be in Mauritius to assist the Government on how to proceed in the drafting of an implementation plan as well as identifying the key areas so as to bring the Mauritian horse racing back on the right track.
For his part, Mr Paul Scotney, emphasised that the report has been drafted in a way to ensure that both the expectations of the public and the Government are met. He added that it is important for the Commission to know what the public wants from the horse racing industry in Mauritius.
It will be recalled that the Commission of Inquiry on Horse Racing in Mauritius was set up under the Chairmanship of Mr. Richard Parry and his assessors Messrs Dennis Gunn and Paul Scotney, in the wake of allegations of corruption in horse racing in Mauritius.
