Double Standards For Crooks And Murderers
I have worked in conjunction with the Leader of Seychelles Freedom Party, Mr Christopher Gill, to bring justice to all Seychellois who have suffered under the brutal regime of Rene and Michel.
I have written formal letters to the United Nations of Human rights, the International Courts of Justice in the Hague, the Commonwealth, the Governments of the United Kingdom and the United States.
Today, we witness the same Governments, the same organisations, the same political leaders that speak for justice and democracy around the world inviting the same people that break all international norms to their official residences. I am baffled by their actions.
Inviting Dictators to dinner is an insult to human dignity. How demoralising for true reformers and activists in their home countries and abroad to see tin-pot dictators and Human Rights abusers feted at the White House and at Downing Street.
David Cameron and Barack Obama should act in a way that agrees with the things they say or else they should put up or shut up.
