2 ASSISTANT COMMISSIONERS OF POLICE APPOINTED

Mr. Godfra Hermitte and Mr. Reginald Elizabeth have been appointed as Assistant Commissioners to the Deputy Commissioner.

The newly created posts are part restructuring programs in the Police Department. Following the new appointments, Assistant Commissioner Godfra Hermitte is now responsible for police support which includes human, physical and mechanical resources whereas Assistant Commissioner Reginald Elizabeth is in charge of all police operations.

In a Press Conference held on Monday 29th December the Minister responsible for Home Affairs, Joel Morgan denied rumours that the Commissioner of Police, Ernest Quatre was retiring. “Commissioner Quatre remains in post and will continue to serve in the police force.”

Speaking of the restructuring of the Police Department, Minister Morgan described it as another step forward in the evolution of the police force. “We are aiming to towards a more dynamic, a more professional and a more effective police force.” Minister Morgan went on to add that the changes are based on a new structure devised across the board in the police force to ensure rationalization of the resources and the functions.

The Police Department has announced that there will be further appointments to other ranks as part of the reorganization.                                                                

PROTEST MARCH AGAINST NEW TAXES

The Seychelles National Party says the new taxes announced in the 2015 budget will definitely raise the cost of living.

To protest against the taxes, the Seychelles National Party organised a march through Victoria on Monday 29th December. The leader of the party, Mr. Wavel Ramkalawan said the taxes on transport will automatically be passed on to the ordinary citizens.

Mr. Ramkalawan gave several scenarios through which the taxes will raise the cost of living saying, “the person who will take a taxi will have to pay more. The family that wants to buy a couple of bricks, some bags of cement, when they come to hire a pick up again they will suffer because the price will increase. Above all, the cost of living will go up because merchants in the various districts when they transport their goods, they will pass on the added costs onto the clients.”

The Seychelles National Party described the decision to increase taxes on transportation as bad and expressed satisfaction with the turnout at the protest march.
