• “Mo pe ramas kass pou enn kouzin so tifi malad”

Lallmatie police are investigating a case of illegal money collection. Sunday afternoon, during a patrol in this village located in the East, a 21-year-old young man, residing in Rivière-du-Rempart, was intercepted while he was collecting money.

The police recovered from his possession a sum of Rs 1,600, as well as a photocopied document bearing the signature of a senior officer of the Central Barracks authorizing the collection to raise funds intended to finance the medical care of a girl suffering from leukemia. However, the said document was not in the name of the young man, but that of a 22-year-old resident of Pointe-aux-Canonniers.

The police then asked him for a permit in his name, which he was unable to provide, admitting that he did not have one allowing him to collect this money. “Mo pena permi, mo pe rann enn servis. » Pressed with questions, the resident of Rivière-du-Rempart suggested that he was collecting money on behalf of a cousin: “Mo pe ramas kass pou enn kouzin so tifi malad. »

Taken to Lallmatie police station, the young man was informed that he was under investigation for illegally collecting money. In an entry to the station, a corporal claimed that on Sunday, at midday, while carrying out a mobile patrol, he spotted the suspect demanding money from passers-by on the main road of Lallmatie. After checking, the police officer explains that he saw a document with a Central Barracks seal.
