AUTHORITIES INVESTIGATING CAUSE OF FIRE ON LANDFILL

The authorities have started an investigation to determine the cause of a fire that started at the Providence Landfill on Wednesday 30th July.

The Fire and Rescue services were alerted of the fire at around 11 in the morning and deployed 2 fire engines and over a dozen men on site to contain the situation and prevent the fire from spreading to surrounding areas. They were assisted by officials from the Division of Risk and Disaster Management, the Civil Aviation Authority and the police.

The Director of the Division of Risk and Disaster Management, Mr. Paul Labaleine say they used resources that were at their disposal such as coral and they managed to contain the fire within 2 hours and put it off completely in the next 2 hours.

CENTRAL BANK CONDUCTING ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE SURVEY

The Central Bank is encouraging members of the public to participate actively in an Economic Performance Survey that will go on till the end of August.

The survey is aimed at providing the Central Bank of Seychelles and the government with a better perspective of the economic progress in the country especially its impact on the population.

The Head of Research and the Statistics Division in the Central Bank, Mr. Brian Commettant says that the survey will help the government to draft a better economic policy. “The objective of the survey is to get these information so it will improve the quality of discussion and analysis that the central bank does with the hope that when we implement those policies, the Central Bank is better informed.”

In the past, when implementing policies, the Central Bank gathered information from several sources but did not use information gathered from the public or businesses in their decision making and policy analysis.

FINANCIAL SERVICES AUTHORITY DENIES MONEY LAUNDERING ALLEGATIONS

The Financial Services Authority has denied allegations that Seychelles has been helping Sri Lanka to transfer public money to Swiss bank accounts.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Authority, Mrs. Wendy Pierre says that international business registered in Seychelles are free to put their money wherever they want as long as it is done in accordance with the laws in place. She puts more emphasis when clarifying that Financial Services Authority acts only as regulator in the financial services sector.

The allegations that Seychelles is aiding Sri Lanka to transfer money to Swiss bank accounts were published in Sri Lankan articles over the internet. According to these articles, the Sri Lankan government took money allocated to development projects in the country placed them in Seychelles and then transferred the money to Swiss Bank accounts using Seychelles addresses.

Mrs. Pierre said the Financial Services Authority we will not tolerate any act that can be illegal or which can negatively expose the Seychelles. She added that indeed the Financial Services Authority licenses and registers companies which do not carry on business in Seychelles as long as they are in compliance with the international standards.

The allegations were firstly denied by the Minister for Foreign affairs recently in the National Assembly following an urgent question on the matter put forward by the Leader of The Opposition in the National Assembly.
