PRESIDENT MEETS LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION

President James Michel has once again met with the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Mr. David Pierre to discuss various issues affecting the country.

During the meeting, the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Mr. David Pierre noted that several issues raised during previous meetings held with the President have materialized. One such issue include how the government spends public money raised by the Finance and Public Accounts Committee. Other areas discussed include education; discipline in schools, health, tourism, the economy, the Finance and Public Accounts Committee’s report and the Electoral Reform.

In an interview following the meeting, Mr. Pierre said he is happy that they have had some important debates on a number of subjects and I am happy that the President is taking those issues seriously.

PUBLIC HEALTH AUTHORITY ISSUES STRICT TRAVEL MEASURES TO PREVENT EBOLA

The Public Health Authority has taken strict measures to deter members of the public from traveling to countries currently battling the Ebola epidemic.

The Commissioner for Public Health, Dr. Jude Gedeon says the stricter preventive measures follow a declaration made by the World Health Organisation that the Ebola epidemic is out of control in the West African region. Dr. Gedeon added that members of the public in Seychelles are currently not adhering to advice not to travel to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.

With immediate effect, Seychellois will not be allowed to travel to the countries listed as having active transmission without permission from the Public Health Authority. Permission will only be granted only if it is a matter of life and death.

Secondly, if citizens of those countries having active transmission or other countries added to the list hereafter decide to travel to their homeland for any reason; they will not be allowed to re-enter Seychelles until such time that the outbreak has been declared over by World Health Organisation. As an additional preventive measure, the Public Health Authority in collaboration with other ministries and other agencies are introducing a VISA for citizens of countries affected by the Ebola outbreak and neighbouring countries in order to be able to enter Seychelles.

Surveillance at the ports of entry have also been intensified requiring passengers and crew members to fill in a form containing information about Ebola and the countries the person has visited in the last 28 days.

COURT OF APPEAL GIVES RULING IN CRIMINAL CASES

At the end of its second session this year, the Court of Appeal has overturned the ruling of the Supreme Court and has granted bail to the 2 accused in the ‘Charita case’.

Charita, a fishing vessel was seized for being involved in the importation of illegal drugs into the country in 2013. 5 accused have been remanded without bail since their arrests awaiting trial. The Court of Appeal has overturned the ruling of the Supreme Court and has granted bail to 2 of the 5 accused. The 2 accused were released subject to certain conditions and their 3 co-accused will be released on bail at a later date once they fulfill certain conditions as well.

One of the Defence Attorneys, Alexia Amesbury said the decision means a lot for the democracy of Seychelles because the Court of Appeal has held that the issue of bail is not a criminal matter, the issue of bail is a constitutional matter.

Among the other criminal cases, the Court of Appeal has reduced the life sentence for murder in the case of Raheim Jumaye. Jumaye’s lawyer, Nichol Gabriel said his defence was along the line, that it was not his client’s intention to kill but the victim was fatally wounded during a struggle. Mr. Gabriel said that the alternative verdict of manslaughter was never mentioned to the jury and has resulted in a miscarriage of justice. The Court of Appeal has quashed Jumaye’s conviction for murder and substituted it with manslaughter with 15years. Jumaye was 18 when he caused the death of a man of Chinese origin at La Promenade on the 31st of December 2010.

WOMEN IN POLICE FORCE COMPLETE TRAINING PROGRAM

Women in the police force in Mauritius, Australia, South Africa and Seychelles are getting the recognition they deserve after successfully completing a training program.

They received their certificates during a recent ceremony in the presence of the Australian High Commissioner, Susan Cole and the Minister for Internal Affairs, Mr. Joel Morgan.

During a short speech, Minister Morgan encouraged more women to join the police force and support women’s rights saying that no police force can be successful if it does not take on board to fully integrate not only able bodied men into its ranks but also women.

Minister Morgan said, “The Seychelles Police Force having existed well over 200 years now was for many of those years a male only dominion however today we acknowledge the important role that women within the police ranks have played at all levels within the last 35 years especially from the junior ranks to our senior officer cadres. They are without a doubt a very important and vital element and key to the department’s overall success. Gender equality is without a doubt a corner stone in Seychelles Government’s policy since our independence. It is being what we are about, that is empowering the people at all levels to be part of society and to contribute equally and positively.”
