Pryde: No charges against Member of Parliament

The Director of Public Prose­cutions, Christopher Pryde, (DPP) has decided that no charges will be laid against Member of Parliament, Parmod Chand.

Mr Chand was arrested by Police and interviewed under caution on December 8, 2017 on suspicion of having committed seditious of­fences contrary to the Crimes Act as a result of alleged comments he made at a shop in Delailabasa, La­basa, on August 14, 2017.

The DPP stated that “there is in­sufficient reliable evidence to sup­port any criminal charges against Mr Chand and therefore the dock­et has been returned to Police.”
