This question has already been answered in the comments section of this article.

I quote:

Where there's no embassy, you will need to send a filled and signed application to a family member or friend residing in Mauritius. You must also post all relevant documents and photos along with your NIC. The person representing you can then go to the Passport Office to renew your passport on your behalf (remember there's a fee to pay). He will then collect the passport when it's ready and can send it back to you abroad.

When you submit an application to an embassy abroad, they send it by post to the head office in Mauritius with all the original paperwork. They only act as an intermediary.

Well, I am not sure if you can give your papers to your friends unless she/he is a solicitor or something but why don't you try contacting the nearest embassy..not necessary France but from UK or Germany.
