He emphasizes that consumers should demand the'' Auction Sheet Certificate 'in that it is imports of second hand cars from Japan."For 95% of second hand cars from Japan are from the 'auction markets'," he says.
"In addition, Ameer Zaid argues, we must make checks-cons regarding the" mileage "of vehicles. Because there are doubts about a Mauritian branch of an international company which carries out inspections for vehicles that come from Europe and Asia. There are bad precedents vehicles imported from Singapore. Despite this, the authorities allow the company to operate in Mauritius.
