Linux enthusiast detained by Cyber Crime Unit of Mauritius

Dunno the reason. It is Saturday night. I’m made aware of my friend Ish is currently being detained by Cyber Crime Unit of Mauritus. Why did they detain him at this hour?

Recently, Ian Murdock, founder of Debian was arrested by police and reports say he was brutalised too. He committed himself to fight against police brutality. He was later found dead. There was no “official” reason announced for the cause of his death.

Ish too is a Free and Open Source advocate, well loved by the Linux community of Mauritius. I do not want history to repeat itself. I hope Ish is being questioned by his lawyers by his side and the Policemen are polite and professional. Brutality, physical or mental torture will not be appreciated at all.

Be strong Ish.
