Mauritius attorneys call for probe into police handling of Michaela Harte murder case
Shock over the alleged incompetence of original investigation team cited
Lawyers in Mauritius have called for a new independent inquiry into the police handling of the investigation into the murder of young Irish honeymooner Michaela McAreavey.
According to the Irish Independent, a year after Sandip Mooneea and Avinash Treebhoowoon were found not guilty of murdering McAreavey, the defense counsel Rama Valayden has called for a 'full-on inquiry on the police handling of the murder investigation by an independent judge.'
Sanjeev Teeluckdharry, Ravi Rutnah and Valayden, defense counsels for the two men who stood trial on a murder charge, held a public meeting in Mauritius last week where they said the crime investigation team's 'incompetence' was one of the major reasons why the case was not solved.
The 27-year-old Irish teacher was found dead in January 2011 in her hotel room on the south sea island. The only daughter of well known Tyrone football manager Mickey Harte, Michaela returned to her room where she interrupted a robbery and was strangled.
The two hotel workers who were accused of her murder were declared not-guilty by the Supreme Court of Mauritius and were acquitted on 12 July 2012.
McAreavey, nee Harte, was a 27-year-old Irish language teacher. McAreavey's funeral was held at the same church where she was married less than one month before.
