Bye ,Bye Zomn Lib!

Image
The ruling communist party PL in Seychelles, has declared, that their” party” Central Committee has agreed to remove Zomn Lib- from Public place, and take him away to a private place. They seemed a little confused about where to take the metal statute built by Father Wavel Ramkalawan’s Father while at PWD. The PL seemed embarrassed about removing Zomn Lib from its position of prominence on Revolution Avenue. What revolution?
The Moment of Great Shame and Emptiness in the Metal Man
The PL seemed extremely  embarrassed this week, of historical proportions, they placed a green roofing barricade up around the infamous monument. Indian workers under GOP, behind the green barricade, chipped away slowly by hand at the marble tiles, than prisoners of the Communist system pulled the plants and shrubs out one by one unceremoniously , to carefully not disturb any bodies that may have been buried in the area, which has now turned into fertilizer.

A pick up truck was on stand by to take the dead …

UN rights council approves inquiry into alleged abuses in Sri Lanka war

Image
27 March 2014 – The United Nations Human Rights Council today voted to open an international inquiry into alleged war crimes committed by both the Sri Lankan Government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in the final stages of a decades-long conflict that ended in 2009.
Adopted by a vote of 23 in favour to 12 against with 12 abstentions, the Geneva-based Council requested the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to undertake a “comprehensive investigation” into alleged serious violations and abuses of human rights and related crimes by both parties, and to establish the facts and circumstances of such alleged violations “with a view to avoiding impunity and ensuring accountability.”
The Sri Lankan Government declared victory over the rebel LTTE in May 2009, after a conflict that had raged on and off for nearly three decades and killed thousands of people. The final months of the conflict had generated concerns about alleged viol…

Qatar Airways snubbed Etihad targets, claims CEO

Image
Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker says the airline is again pursuing acquisitions after revealing it rejected stakes in Olympic Airlines, Air Seychelles, Air Serbia and Alitalia – the latter three of which are now linked to rival carrier Etihad, it was reported.
The second-biggest Gulf airline is “actively discussing opportunities” with other passenger carriers, Al Baker said in an interview with Bloomberg.
“I would not like to pre-empt our decision,” he was quoted as saying. “We would rather keep it to ourself for the time being, of where we want to invest. When we see that there are strong synergies between the two carriers we are open to investment.”
However, Al Baker said Qatar Airways was “offered” unprofitable Greek carrier Olympic Airlines, Air Seychelles and “even Air Serbia,” while Alitalia, which has suffered years of losses, has indicated its availability “several times over the past five years,” Al Baker told Bloomberg, adding that none of the deals came thr…

Seychelles Extends Asylum for Relatives of Tunisia Ex-Dictator

Image
Authorities in the Seychelles said Tuesday it was allowing the son-in-law of Tunisia's deposed dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to continue his asylum on the islands for another 12 months. Sakhr El Materi, who was convicted in absentia of corruption by a Tunisian court, appealed for asylum in the Indian Ocean archipelago in February 2013. The Seychelles foreign ministry said Materi had been "granted an extension of an additional twelve months on his residence permit along with his wife, their three children and entourage." It said it had been told by his lawyers that he was "still at risk of persecution and would not be granted due process of the law by the Tunisian authorities if he were forcibly returned to the Tunisian Republic." The foreign ministry statement said Materi's lawyers had also argued that "there have been several instances of politically exposed persons being targeted by assassinations" in Tunisia. "The Republic o…

Jean-Paul David says he was hit in the face with a baton during a late-night raid.
A young man was hospitalized on Monday evening after sustaining serious injuries from what he says was a police beating. Jean-Paul David, 25, who lost teeth and hurt his right leg in the incident, now says he is planning to lodge a court case against the authorities. The police have launched an investigation in the allegation of police brutality, confirmed Police Public Relations Officer, Jean Toussaint.


TODAY visited Mr David in the D’Offay Ward yesterday afternoon. Speaking through his friend, on account of the heavy swelling around his mouth, he said the incident unfolded at 8:00 pm in Roche Bois, Belonie. A group of 15 people were hanging around the area, when he says a small pickup and a Terios pulled up. Without identifying themselves, police then shot a canister of teargas at them, sending the group running in every direction, he recounts.
Along with everyone else, he set off, stra…

Breaking News

Victoria- Seychelles Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) met with members of the one party state National Assemblyand Vice President Danny Faure and gave the SPPF PL regime a serious no nonsense dressing down on their lack of due diligence to see through Human Rights international obligations which Seychelles bound to implement under the United Nation Charter and other relevant treaties it has signed. The room was still, straight faced and silence reigned. For years now the Seychelles regime has made steady progress towards Authoritarianism and disregarding human rights as a serious topic. For years now, the regime has trampled on Individual Human Rights provisions enshrined in the Constitution of Seychelles, that this very regime signed and passed by referendum in 1993. Since 1993, the degradation has been most prominent in the last Five (5) years when Seychelles got a new National Assembly, funding for Police force from EU and yet, all this assistance seems…

              of the Day. Violations in Seychelles Are Getting Worse Each Day.

Come To Seychelles, Have A Cocktail at Sundown
This week, after the USA Human Rights Country Report-Seychelles came out on Republic of Seychelles, which exposed many State sponsored ongoing malpractice and numerous malfeasance on part of the PL government of Seychelles, Minister Jean Paul Adam quickly went into cover up mode, calling the report” sensational”, and invited anyone in the USA to come to Seychelles and see for themselves the situation.
I almost threw up when he said that.
Invite Them To Seychelles


Every time Minister Adam gets a damning Human Rights Report, or abrasive reaction from the international community on SPPF PL conduct, he cunningly invites them to Seychelles as if he has nothing to hide. The recent invitation of UN to see for themselves , the issue of HUMAN TRAFFICKING back fired on Adam last month, only…
