A Mauritius team official has been charged by Queensland State police for sexually assaulting one of the delegation’s athletes at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Mauritius official, Chef de mission Kaysee Teeroovengadum stepped down from his role at the Gold Coast Games, after police received a complaint that he had assaulted javelin thrower Jessika Selma Rosun, the Mauritius sports ministry told Reuters
“Police will charge the 52-year-old Mauritian man who assaulted a 26-year-old woman in Southport on March 29.
“The matter was reported to police who charged the man with one count of sexual assault today,” Police said in a statement on Friday.
The man is due to appear in the Southport Magistrates’ Court on April 17.
The Mauritius sports ministry said Teeroovengadum had departed the athletes’ village but remained in the Gold Coast because of the police investigation.
