Political Analyst, Dr. Kirk Meighoo, is of the view that the current controversy surrounding former government minister, Devant Maharaj who publicly revealed the mobile numbers of both the Prime Minister and the National Security Minister, does not border on sedition.
Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. It often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent towards, or resistance against established authority.
Reflecting on the development on the State of the Nation Programme on Power 102.1FM on Monday afternoon, Dr. Meighoo admitted that while some persons may be against what Mr. Maharaj has done, he does not believes that the action falls under the category of sedition.
Dr. Meighoo said there are laws on the book that can address the situation once an offense is committed.
