ATTN: President James Alix Michel
RE: Threats of Violence Intimidation, Bodily Harm of
Dear Mr. President:
I am writing to you concerning an ongoing situation involving the continuous threat of violence, intimidation and threat of bodily harm of Freedom Party staff by State House Agent, Mr. Jemmy Marengo as reported to me by my staff.
Briefly, as your intelligence will have reported to you, this matter is now getting out of hand and requires leadership on your part to put this to rest once and for all.
Neighbors today are not resident neighbors that can be silenced, but the world has become a neighborhood. We as a country cannot go back to the dark past of the one party state era and not hold in check this thug culture and violence. Victimization and intimidation must stop in
I am calling on you to take immediate steps to: 1. cause to be stopped these incidences, 2. renounce the use of intimidation, violence, bribery, to effect cohersion in
. This I suggest, can best be done by making a public statement on the matter, and secondly, reeling in these thugs, and terminating their services once and for all. If you have cases pending on them, they should be brought forward and prosecuted under the laws of Seychelles . Seychelles
I cite the incidences reported to me by my staff chronologically, starting from the most recent ending with the first contact:
1. Sunday 10: 48 am 02nd October, 2011 from No. 2722421 (State House assigned number) known to Freedom Party Administrator Miss Vanessa Gertrude to be Mr. Jemmy Marengo who said-
“I have not been calling you, because I was giving you
time to find some information for me. Not those ones
that I already have and know, but the ones of which I don’t
know and you will get your fat envelope each month.
Also I have a message for Jean Paul Isaac. Tell him that the
picture he has put on facebook, that I’m dancing with my
daughter, tell him I will dance with him anywhere I find him,
even in front of the Police Station. We will dance together with
his wife also. I will come to Docklands and we will dance
together. Don’t forget to pass him my message.”
2. Friday 10:30 am 09th, September 2011 from No 2722421 (State House assigned number) known to Freedom Party Administrator Miss Vanessa Gertrude to be Mr. Jemmy Marengo who said-
“ If you find anything in the office, then we will meet
and will arrange you with payment”.
3. Friday 5:30pm August 8th, 2011, from No 2722421 (State House assigned number) known to Freedom Party Administrator Miss Vanessa Gertrude to be Mr. Jemmy Marengo who said-
“ If you want to live a good life, then I want you
to act as a spy in that office and provide me
with any information with regards to the party
and you will get paid on the side”.
Having said that Mr. President, I believe in light of such a sensitive situation, wherein Freedom Party staff life is in danger, under constant threat and intimidation, it is imperative that you take steps to stop the victimization, threats of violence and intimidation.
I leave this matter to you. I have not kept any valuable information in our office, naturally, those are secured overseas, not accessible by any thug here in our beloved
I await your reply, and commitment to handle this matter as a matter of urgency, and due respect for the lives implicated. If you feel you would like to appoint a liason to deal with this matter, you may consider this at your leisure.
I am sure you too will say, “enough is enough”.
