Claudine Razaimamonjy, the businesswoman under warrant of arrest and prosecuted, inter alia, for embezzlement of public funds and money laundering, was able to obtain a transfer to a hospital in Mauritius.
She was given a medical evacuation permit after a discomfort that led her to the emergency room of the Antananarivo hospital.
An authorization signed by the Department of Justice and the Ministry of Health. A departure described as “escape” by many Malagasy.
Faced with this new case of corruption, it is a feeling of disgust that animates the movements of civil society and Malagasy citizens.
Sentiment of impunity, justice at two speeds … This is the impression of many Malagasy people after the departure of Claudine Razaimamonjy for the clinic Fortis Darné, in Mauritius Monday morning April 10 in the morning.
For Andry, this double standard can no longer last. ” Here, then, if we are rich, we can flout the Constitution in Madagascar, but we populations in conditions of survival, we can not afford to do this! “He indignantly.
Jean, however, is not surprised by the turn of the matter. ” This is not the first time that a ” big fish ” like this comes out of his trap , he said. This story has been repeated for generations in Madagascar. ”
“Citizens no longer trust in justice”
One more issue that has consequences on Madagascar society’s attitude towards justice, says Ketakandriana Rafitoson, one of the leaders of the Wake up Madagascar citizen movement : ” Public opinion was really expecting a lot from this Business.
Citizens no longer have confidence in justice, and this is one of the reasons for the increase in popular vindictiveness. Because people say “if we translate this person into justice we know the result, it will always escape because it has the arm long, so we prefer to do justice ourselves.” ”
The collective also recalls that Claudine Razaimamonjy is the subject of two bans of exit Madagascar.
