Mauritian Linux Professional Granted Permission To Be An Expert Witness In Court

The young Mauritian Linux enthusiast and blogger who discovered vulnerability on the MNIC website, Ish Sookun, was granted the permission by Judge Eddy Balancy to do a presentation as a witness. The State who was represented by Rabindra Namdarkhan, argued that Mr Sookun cannot give his expert knowledge because he has no academic degree.
Mr Sookun stated that he is a Linux Certified Professional and has aquired knowlegde in the field through practical experience. The judge was satisfied with the explanation and agreed that Ish does the presentation on the next hearing, 5th September 2014.

On the other side, a message relating to the last date for registration of the new ID card was posted on the official page of No to biometric data on ID card. The messages go as follows:
"MNIIC is now giving the 30TH OF SEPTEMBER as the last date for registration when being asked today. That date was already stated in court before the Supreme Court went on holiday in August. MNIC seized the opportunity to give false date to pressurize people. We are sorry for those who went to do the card in fear. Follow the news and our group closely because this date can be postponed at any time. All we are asking now is to be patient.

MNIIC nous a informé de la prolongation de la date limite pour le renouvellement de vos cartes; soit jusqu'au 30 septembre 2014. Cette date avait déjà été annoncée lors de l'audience en Cour Suprême en Août avant que celle-ci ne soit en vacances. MNIC a depuis manqué d'informer la population de cette prolongation laissant planer le climat de pression à l'arrivée de la précédente date butoir. Nous sommes désolés pour ceux qui pris de peur sont allés faire leur carte. Nous vous invitons à consulter régulièrement notre page afin de recevoir les dernières informations. Il se pourrait que cette date soit à nouveau revue. Il nous faudra être patient et nous comptons sur vous.
