Vivekanand Alleear, former Chief Justice of Seychelles, is suspected by the Americans to have received land on Mahe. And funding studies of his son in England. (Photo: The Supreme Court of the archipelago).
He is suspected of having received favors from the ruling party in the Seychelles. The Mauritian Alleear Vivekanand, former chief judge of the archipelago, was blacklisted in a note from the U.S. Embassy in Mauritius that he got first choice of land for development projects of the regime of Albert René. And funding studies of his son in England. This is shown by a note signed by Cesar Cabrera November 7, 2008, and posted by Wikileaks this August 30, 2011. In this document entitled "Paradise Lost: How corruption bankrupted Seychelles," the U.S. ambassador made an inventory of the darkest of the archipelago plagued by defaults, lack of foreign currency as well as institutionalized corruption by the sole ruling party, the Seychelles People's Progressive Front (SPPF).
Having put forward the "circumstantial evidence" by which is none other than the power that people fill their pockets, Cesar Cabrera cite cases where justice would have been complicit in their actions.
For example, he says, August 5, 2008, the second largest hotel in Seychelles, The Plantation Club, was put into liquidation at the request of Mahé although it has only 8% of assets in the establishment. The next day, Judge Andrew Ranjan Perera, who issued that order, was appointed Chief Justice to replace the Mauritian Vivekanand Alleear supposed to have been forced to resign in January 2008.
According to information of Americans, foreigners continue to be placed at the head of the judicial institutions of the islands as they are more "malleable". In addition to huge salaries, a system of "patronage" is believed to have been set up to have some influence on them, said Cesar Cabrera.
Cases of favoritism and patronage are listed in bulk, such as the Mahé decision to sell island $ 75 million was injected for a proposed shrimp farm. The lucky buyer is the Indian Chinnakannan Sivasankaran that President James Michel has appointed "Ambassador-at-Large." Mahe, however, preferred to withdraw its diplomatic visa for the latter to the U.S. embassy when it wanted to know it would be its exact function.
Corruption is as Vocere Ralph, who is the editor of a local newspaper, was forced to print his future articles in Mauritius, his printing was closed. Best of all, he was arrested by the Mauritian authorities to her off the plane in October 2008 based on information provided by the Seychelles authorities that he had heroin in his luggage ...
So Albert Rene is cited as one who really runs the Seychelles, the Americans call Francis Chang Leng, the former governor of the Central Bank of Seychelles as a symbol of corruption. He had spent eight million Seychelles rupees for a small group of employees who were with him in his travels abroad.
In his comments, Cesar Cabrera says it is very difficult to obtain evidence of such corruption, justice itself is not considered impartial. "The plethora of circumstantial evidence, however, There Is That Does support significant corruption in the system," he writes.
A late last night, Vivekanand Alleear was unavailable for comment. It is not listed in the directory. Even his lawyer friends can get in touch with him.
