Malagasy Prostitutes Expelled From Mauritius
Panafrican News Agency April 7, 2000

Port-Louis, Mauritius (PANA) - Nine Malagasy women found to be involved in
prostitution in Port Louis and at Grand Bay, a resort village in the north
of the island, were expelled Wednesday by police.

The police are presently looking for other women from Madagascar who have
not left the country after their visas expired.

Meanwhile, officers of the Passport and Immigration Office and the
Anti-Drug and Smuggling Unit are searching guest houses and other small
hotels in a bid to identify foreigners involved in prostitution or working
illegally in the country.
