NEW EGYPTIAN AMBASSADOR ACCREDITED TO SEYCHELLES

“President James Michel and the government of Seychelles have done their best in the negotiations with the Egyptian authorities to get the death penalty to be reduced to life imprisonment for the 3 Seychellois who have been sentenced in Egypt.”

The declaration was made by the new Egyptian Ambassador to Seychelles, Mr. Mahmoud Ali Talaat after presenting his credentials to President James Michel at State House on Tuesday 21st October.

Mr. Talaat said normally the Egyptian government does not get involved with decisions made by the court; he however said he will convey President Michel’s message to the Egyptian president as soon as he gets to his office in Nairobi where he is be based.

Seychelles has submitted many appeals for clemency to have the death sentences of the 3 Seychellois drug trafficking convicts reduced to life imprisonment.

For his part, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Jean-Paul Adam has confirmed that special envoy ambassador Barry Faure is in Egypt where he is continuing negotiations on behalf of the government of Seychelles. “I think the ambassador’s presence there indicates how seriously Egypt takes this issue and that they are listening to us but of course they cannot change their laws just to accommodate us.”

Both Ambassador Talaat and Minister Adam are confident that the Egyptian government will do its utmost to make sure at least the appeals by the government of Seychelles are heard.

SCHEMES OF SERVICE FOR POLICE OFFICERS AND RESCUE OFFICERS BEING REVISED

The Police Department and the Fire and Rescue Services Agency are revising the schemes of service of their employees to reflect new developments in the country.

The Minister for Transport and Home Affairs, Joel Morgan said in the National Assembly on Tuesday 21st October that the revision also reflects the change in the nature of the work of the officers during question time.

The new schemes of service for the two departments are part of efforts to create a more professional and efficient police force. Minister Morgan said the new schemes of service are aimed at attracting competent people and retaining current staff in their jobs.

Minister Morgan added that if everything goes well the new schemes of service will come into effect in January next year after consideration by the department of public administration before submitting it to the ministry responsible for finance.
