JUDICIARY LAUNCHES VIRTUAL LIBRARY SERVICE

The Seychelles Judiciary should be in a better position to deal with cases of maritime piracy following the launch of LexisNexis, one of the world’s largest databases of legal decisions. 

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime paid over US$30,000 for the first year subscription to LexisNexis.

A training session was recently held to acquaint judges, magistrates and other judiciary officials to the data base. The session was conducted by Mr. Donovan Burn, a representative of LexisNexis based in South Africa. He explained that the database contains the law reports for various jurisdictions and created software called legal site data which actually help person who is not in the UK jurisdiction actually see how the case was treated in the court.

For his part, before launching the LexisNexis service, the Acting Chief Justice, Judge Durai Karunakaran expressed his conviction that the cornucopia of legal information would be put to good use by all judicial officers to their best advantage.

HARMONIZING AGE OF CONSENT FOR SEX WITH AGE FOR ACCESS TO CONTRACEPTIVES

The National Assembly through the Ministry Of Health is calling on the government to harmonize the age of consent for sex with the age of adulthood.

Under the current regulations, the age for consensual sex is 15 years old in the Penal Code whilst the Civil Code deals with issues relating to an adolescent into turning into an adult at 18. Therefore, adolescents younger than 18 require their parents’ permission to have access to contraceptives.

When presenting the motion, the Member of the National Assembly for Pointe Larue, Ms. Jennifer Vel said the discrepancy in the 2 regulations is the main reason for increase in teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases among adolescents.

Whilst admitting that teenagers are involved in risky behaviours, some parliamentarians were of the opinion that several groups including adolescents are responsible for this situation. The other members stressed on the need to protect the health of the youngest members of society.

The members of the National Assembly who deliberated on the motion however did not specify whether the harmonization of the regulations should be at 15 or 18 years.
