Precisely, according to My.T terms & conditions *they* shall examine and
disclose to third parties. As per ICTA website, the filtering happens at
ICTA and not ISP's. Technically, it is not the ISPs who are filtering
the traffic.

I do not have a clear answer on what happens when an IP address is
flagged in that system. So far, to all those whom I've asked the
question it seems like they are either scared to talk on this subject or
they totally ignore what it is.

If ICTA is applying the law as per the ICT Act, then they should be
clear about their mandate and not be reluctant in answering.

Thanks. I shall question and re-question, then re-question.

The ICT Authority of Mauritius will say there is no censorship.
