FOLLOWING THE ACQUITTAL of two men who were on trial for the murder of Michaela McAreavey and the printing of graphic photographs of her body in a Mauritian newspaper there have been calls for a boycott of the country.
A travel agent in Donegal has dropped the Indian Ocean island from its list of holiday destinations with the owner of Liberty Travel in Donegal, Carolyn Davis, saying that she would not have “the stomach” to offer it as a holiday destination. Last week Fine Gael MEP Seán Kelly called for a boycott of the island before rowing back on those comments amid claims authorities were to reopen an investigation.
But the publication of the images of Michaela’s body in the ‘Sunday Times’ newspaper has caused outrage and although the paper has apologised, there are calls from some for the country to be boycotted until there is an outcome to the case.
So today we’d like to know do you support a boycott of Mauritius?
