Ireland South MEP Sean Kelly this morning called for a boycott on travel to Mauritius in the wake of the judgement on the McAreavey trial. Posting on Facebook, Mr Kelly stated:

‘’ No justice for Michaela McAreavey in Mauritius. It is a massive indictment of Mauritius authorities’ incompetence. No Irish should visit Mauritius yet until justice is done.’’

Kelly, who was President of the GAA while McAreavey’s father Mickey Harte managed the Tyrone senior football team, made the comments after two men suspected of McAreavey’s murder were acquitted in a Mauritius court yesterday.

The validity of the trial has been questioned due to accusations of harassment from police seeking witness evidence. After a trial of seven weeks the jury declared that Avinash Treebhoowoon and Sandip Moneea were not guilty.

An Taoiseach Enda Kenny commented on the ‘’unsatisfactory’’ outcome of the trial, and said that Ireland will consider using its diplomatic ties to try and have the case reexamined, but clarified that the government does not interfere with the legal systems of other states.
