NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ALREADY HAD FINANCIAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE AUTONOMY 
 

The Speaker of the National Assembly, Patrick Pillay has said that the house already had administrative and financial autonomy.

This follows the cabinet’s decision to grant financial autonomy within an agreed framework to the judiciary, the National Assembly, other constitutional bodies and the Anti Corruption Commission.

Speaker Pillay however added that the announcement by the cabinet of ministers formalises the already existing framework and reinforce the statement to the public regarding the inherent separation of powers of the three arms of the government.  

“We run our own budget according to what we feel is right because we are answerable to the Ministry of Finance. They are the ones who keep the public purse or the country’s purse but we follow all regulations and rules that exist. We do justify if ever we’re asked to justify any action or any decision; financial or administrative that we take,” said Speaker Pillay.

The cabinet of ministers’ came to the decision to allow the bodies to run their affairs in an autonomous way during its last meeting on the 17th May.

KARUNAKARAN’S LAWYER CALLS FOR RECUSAL OF JUDGES ON TRIBUNAL OF INQUIRY

Lawyer Philippe Boullé representing Judge Duraikannu Karunankaran has submitted an application for the recusal of two judges from the tribunal of inquiry investigating his client’s ability to perform the functions of judge of the Supreme Court.

The tribunal was established as a result of a complaint received by the Constitutional Appointments Authority from the Chief Justice, Mathilda Twomey. It consists of former Chief Justice, Egonda Ntende and two judges of the Supreme Court Judge Samia Govinden and Judge Mohan Niranjit Burhan.

In the petition submitted during the tribunal’s meeting on 22nd May at the National House, Mr. Boullé stated that Judges Govinden and Burhan are not only colleagues of the complainant but also her subordinates. He said they work daily under her authority, control, supervision, influence, instruction and direction. He cited conflict of interest as both judges were implicated in the complaint and therefore witnesses.

The Tribunal will deliver its judgement on the application on 23rd May.

CAA CALLS FOR A REVIEW OF KARUNAKARAN’S CASE

The Constitutional Appointments Authority has called for a cessation of the inquiry process into suspended Supreme Court Judge Karunakaran’s conduct to allow a review of the complaint.

According to a press statement issued by the CAA, the judge may have been unfairly denied a proper hearing before his case was earmarked for a tribunal. There are apparently no evidence found in files from the previously constituted CAA to show it considered complaints against the Judge.

The members of the CAA have concurred not provide interviews on the matter in order to protect the process and not to try the matter in the media, and to avoid any politicization or sensationalism of the process.  

DENTAL CLINICS TO REOPEN NEXT MONTH

The Anse Royale and Les Mamelles dental clinics will re-open next month.

Both clinics have undergone renovation works. The Public Health Agency had previously announced that services at the two clinics would resume earlier in May.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Public Health Agency, Dr. Danny Louange said that the clinics will have modern equipment worth around Rs. 4 million which are expected to improve the services offered.

TOWARDS AN INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK FOR TEACHER EDUCATION, DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT IN SEYCHELLES

“One of the key points of reflection is whether we are producing the quality and the quantity of teachers needed for Seychelles to achieve the vision and goals of a knowledge-based economy and society,” said Minister Joel Morgan.

The Minister responsible for Education and Human Resource Development was speaking during the launching of one-day colloquium to reach consensus on a clearer direction on an integrated approach for teacher education in Seychelles held at SITE auditorium on 22nd May.

The purpose of the colloquium was to share the findings and recommendations of the Teacher Education Task Force.

In his address, Minister Morgan said providing excellence in education is what is required and needed for the future of our country. “Education systems in the 21st century demand that excellence and quality drive our thinking; our actions and all that we do. There is no time left for trial and error in what we do. It is time for action for definite and corrective action. There is also no place for complacency and mediocrity in the education system.”
