Drink and heroin killed sailor in Seychelles - but was alcohol spiked?

ROYAL Navy engineer Charlie Warrender, who was found dead while on active service in the Seychelles islands, had traces of heroin in his system, it has been confirmed.
But it is understood investigators are looking into the possibility that his drink may have been spiked as he and fellow crew members of HMS Richmond visited the island from their ship in May.
An inquest opening has heard the 22-year-old former Grimsby student from North Thoresby died from the combined effects of alcohol and heroin intoxication with positional asphyxia.
He was found dead at 6.30am near the docks in the main port of Victoria.
Seychelles Police said the death was suspicious because the serviceman had a head injury.
Toxicology tests later confirmed traces of heroin in his system.
Several crew members were out with the engineer technician on the evening before his body was found.
The coroner for Grimsby and North Lincolnshire, Paul Kelly, is awaiting a reports from the island police and the Royal Navy who have interviewed crew members.
A Royal Navy spokeswoman said Seychelles Police have primacy in the investigation.
She said: "The Royal Navy undertook an Immediate Ship's Investigation (ISI) into the circumstances surrounding this incident.
"The purpose of the ISI was to review the ship's leave and security policy at the time of the incident.
"This was not an investigation into ET Warrender's death, for which the Seychelles Police have primacy. Therefore, the ISI did not inquire into, assess or analyse any matters or material which may prejudice the findings of the Seychelles Police investigation.
"A review of the ISI is now being carried out to determine if there are any immediate lessons that should be identified."
The former Louth King Edward VI Grammar School pupil was serving on Portsmouth-based ship HMS Richmond, which was part of Operation Kipion in the Indian Ocean at the time.
At the time of the tragedy his family issued a statement describing Charlie as "a charismatic and loving young man, who made everyone who met him smile."
The family statement said: "He was extremely proud to serve in the Royal Navy and was thoroughly enjoying travelling the world, progressing his career as a Marine Engineer."

While on board HMS Richmond he played an active part in operations supporting UK Sovereign Territories in the South Atlantic, Defence Engagement with Chilean forces, counter narcotics duties in the North Atlantic and service in the Indian ocean.
Charlie was a former Franklin College student, who spent time with Humberside Engineering Training Association (HETA) in Stallingborough.
A guard of honour was held by The Royal Navy at his funeral in June at Grimsby crematorium.



  1. Can someone in the Pl or Pierre himself .explains to the Seychellois people ,how come that he is earning the same slalry as a minsirer and more than members of the Assembly?Is it Consitituional or crooked pl practices?

  2. Crimianl Michel does not stop insulting Seychellois .There he goes ,charing a body to look at (RECONCILIATION AND UNITY) --A reconciliation body can only be mamange and lead by neutral individuals ,,not the chief -criminal himself........

    before there is any RECONCICLIAITION ....the normal process must be ------that culprits like Michel,come forward and explain the why of their crimes.....ask for forgiveness from vicitms or victim family members,,,,,,
    But as Michel thinks he is god...he has given himself the authority to named himself as chariman of a FAKE RECONCILIATION BODyx that has no legitimacy....

    A criminal ,Michel cannot be the juge of his own crimes---------

    Reconcilaition Michel happens only between victims and culrpits ,not finger picked Pl thugs on a fake body labeled RECONCILAITION AN DUNITY.........If you still primitive Michel ,note that Seychellois are not donkey...

  3. What for a crook..:Michel set up a so called CONSLUTIVE RECONCILATION ANDUNTIY body ,chaired by Chief Crimianl Michel himself and mebmers by a handful of Pl thugs ,and that behind closed door at Statehouse.

    First Michel,,a RECONCILAITION BODY can and must Only be chaired by a NUETRAL perons as well as the body Memebers .suc has ASpirirtual leaders ;NGOS and and it must be public.

    REconcialition COmmiittee must be set up,,,,,,,,and criminals Like u Michel must come forward ,voluntarily IN PUBLIC(ON SBC LIVE)and explain first the reasons of your cirmes ....then aslk for forgiveness and pardon .......

    But it seems Michel has decided as a dictator would do ,,to be his own juge for his own crimes ..and has the feel that he can dictate the way a RCOCNICLAITION would go on....

    Civivl society Michle ,,are the ones to membered a reconcialition body ..not the criminal themselves......

    There is no where on earth that crimianls become their own juges

    YOur so called consultative RCONCIALTION AND UNIT discussion Michel ,is VOID ,,it has no legitiamcy and it would never have......

  4. Everything is wrong with the so called 'Reconciliation and unity' committee. In the first place the title should have been 'Truth and Reconciliation'. The chairman should have been someone like Bishop French, not Michel. He would be one of the main individuals to come before the committee to beg forgiveness for the murderous acts committed during and after the Coup d'Etat. Michel is still trying to suppress the truth with a fake Committee to fool the Seychellois and the world, he should borrow a page from South African Bishop Tutu.
    Michel thinks that all Seychellois are buffoons like him, his latest slogan "Valer pour moi - valer pour ou - valer pour nou tous". Has been replied by an appropriate slogan, "Vote for Michel is Maler pour moi - maler pour ou - maler pour nous tous"
    Alley - Seychelles sa!

  5. Well if voters can read this (08:41) and stick those issues in their koksis HE should voted out in 2016.
    But IF voters get BRAINWASHED just before election with gifts and construction materials we get back to square one!
    It happened in the past hope HISTORY will not repeat itself.
    Mon Sesel Sa!

  6. Wow! the photo in today's Nation newspaper shows the event at the 'Wall of Fame', and amazingly the lady in red is showing a sudden 'popped-out' tummy. Well done St. Anne, you are really working very hard to increase the arrivals!

  7. In a speech on the occasion of Indain Indepdecne day..Meriton the idiot said this"Indains were among the first slettelrs of Seychelles in 1970"...this donkey either want to fake history or has no knowledge of Seychelles history...I would remind Donkey Meriton...that the first settlers in Seychelles shores were Fench and your grand grand Afrcian parents ..donkey ...Indinas and CHines came after the French handed over Seychelles to the birts......the latter started to import Indains to Seychelles for your grand pa Meriton refused to work for the Brits.

    Nad you know why Indains and Chinese were not the first settlers donkey...this for a simple reasons...namely Indain and china was not a French colony..so for this reason it could not be that Indain were among the first settlers donkey ..else we would probably not sepak creole but a mixture of hindi and French ....

    Go back to school donkey meriton...

  8. A new Seychelles government of Seychelles must revsiti the indain artificial influence in our affaires ....For instance,in 2103 ,Indain special forces commader said"Indain special forces must be able to intervene internal or EXTERNAl (in Mauritius, Madldives or Seychelles )9vbecause the indain think Seychelles is aprt of the toerritiory and they can intervene when the want on our shores...as the do in Maldivies ,lNepal ......we donot have anything in common with Indain.....and we should stop them from their belif that they can come and operate on our shores as in Nepal ,Bhutan countires which they share community as Language ,culture ,tradition...Pl has made the Indain believe they can rape our soveiregnty ..Pl has imported Indians to colonize seychlles in order to modify our nation --------This must stop and expats should be reduce on our shores just as the illegal Hidnu Religious procession that Pl has allowed indain to perfom on our streets as if we hindu and part of India......


  9. Fake opposition leader ,stooge Pierre,is pocketing a salry equal to that of a minister ,more than a member of Assembly ...can Pl tell us why?

  10. In a monologue in front of three fenchmen from Normandie .Idiot Meriton said"UN RENCONTE INTERANTIONALE"Donkey frenhc and Seychellois share 90 percent culture,tradition ,language etc.. it is more than UN RENCONTRE INTERANTIONALE ,,but rather UN RENCONTE ANCESAOTRY between frnehc and Seychellois ..where most of our ancestors came from...If your grnadparents came from Afircan Meriuton ,you must not try to falsified others decendent.

  11. The historical fact .shows thatr in 1770 Only 5 indains were brought from Mauritius to Seychelles .but2 years later they were sent back to Mauritius........that is the fact Meriton........and then we found indains again in seychelles during brit colony Meriton.......

  12. Michel is a donkey from birth ,so he will die as a donkey.........
    Reconcilaition chaired by Michel and membered by a handful of his gang members is an insult to victims.....
    But there is one thing about Michel attempt to reconcilait himself with himself...that is by calling a fake RECONCILAITION at State ...Michel is in a way accepting the fact ,that he has committed crimes on Seychellois ..something he has so far laways denied---If you^didi not commited crimes on Seychellois Michel.. why then a RECONCILAITION ...? to reconciliate what then ?
    No one will vote for Michel.. in fact ,no seychllois ever voted any Pl to power ,,they confiscated power in 1977 .for the simple fact ,that they knew seychellos would never elected them on power..........
    What we discovered recently .is that ovewr 1000 under age Seychellois were illegally recored on voters liste and that cover up by GAPPY .That there was a SOFT copy of voters registration ,,Concoted by Pl and Gappy to fake lection result ....
    Not only Pl must be investigated by GAPPY and gang too........

  13. Pl send Seychellois in African Universities.African universities are the worse in the world.....The first African Unvisersity is in South African ,classed literally last on the world classification list ..one can understand why education in Seychelles is dowen under pl........

  14. Among the world Top 500 universitites ----only one in Egypt and 4 in South Africa is listed on the list...but all are at the bottom of the list......Apaprt from that no all African unviersitites are Last of thr list ..in fact ..they last ,but in realitiy they should not even be on the list......Beofre independence Seychellois highly educated attented Western unviversitites ,under pl Most Seychellois are sned to African universitites which give us a taste of how our education system and standard has collapse under pl.........

    otday Seychellois are send to learn English (Not in South Africa maybe)but in Botswana a bad English speaking country(ex german colony9to study advance English...is not that a shame...? the contradiction in all that ,is that pl want to import foreigners to study at Seychelles University but send Seychellois study in the world worse ,under grade universities in Africa.
