The State of Mauritius and another v The (Mauritius) CT Power Ltd and others (Mauritius)

Judicial review – Application for judicial review. The Supreme Court of Mauritius had been entitled to find that the decisions of the appellant Government Ministries had been open to challenge by way of judicial review, but had erred in finding that their decisions not to complete a contract with the respondent had been unreasonable. The Privy Council, allowing the Ministries' appeal held that they had been entitled to make a decision that the respondent had not complied with the pre-contract requirements for the provision of a comfort letter and that the respondent had had no legitimate expectation that, despite that non-compliance, its comfort letter would either be accepted or that further debate was an option.
