SFP Leadership Sign's Letter For The Chinese Ambassador To Seychelles Before Departing on Holiday trip what was the other opposition party doing for Seychellois???

RE: PRC Military Base and Presence in Seychelles

Dear Mr. Ambassador Jhu:

I am writing to you concerning the recent public announcement of the People’s Republic China (PRC)  and Government of Seychelles intention to establish a military base and satellite base operation in the Seychelles Islands and the Indian Ocean.

Most recently you led a delegation of over Forty (40) top military officials to meet with Seychelles sitting President Mr. James Alix Michel and made the announcement of the bilateral intention to set up a military base in Seychelles.

I advise you, that under the Constitution of Seychelles 3rd Republic,  we are a sovereign nation. This being the case, all defense matters are constitutionally assigned to the Seychelles Defense Forces, which are soldiered by our own people, the Seselwa Rasin people.

It is Seychelles Freedom Party’s (SFP) position, that the presence of a PRC military installation in the region will destabilize the existing relations of peace and cooperation the entire region enjoys with the United States, India, the European Union, and other African states, that consider the Indian Ocean


their respective sphere of influence.

If the Indian Navy set up a base next to Taiwan, how would the PRC react to that act of consolidation? 

Given the seriousness of your government’s intentions, I must make our position clear and simple: given the PRC over involvement in Seychelles over the past years, to the point that your government has buttressed a dictatorship whose expiry date has been long past, a regime that has no regard for democratic practice or rule of law, I must advise you that your presence in Seychelles is not welcome.

Given that your presence has extended beyond mere country to country cooperation, for which I can site numerous examples like the funding of our National Assembly, when your country does not respect the democratic process, the funding of our Judiciary when justice is not done towards Tibet and other minorities, we cannot consider your funding to be legitimate for these institutions of democracy.

Nor can we consider your military presence in Seychelles condusive to fostering peace or progress in the Indian Ocean region, particularly the Republic of Seychelles.

With that said, Mr. Ambassador, I want to set the record on the matter at hand, that your further enhanced military presence in Seychelles is not welcome.

We the members of Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP) consider the presence of PRC military to be illegitimate and an unwarranted, interference into our internal affairs to prop up a dictatorship that has not respected democratic norms for Eighteen (18) years since moving from Seventeen (17) years of one party state dictatorship to a multi party set up, which we now all know has been a political farce all along.

If there is any foreign military presence in the Seychelles, it is our position, that because this involves the compromising of our sovereignty , that such presence must be put to REFERENDUM to be voted for by the rightful People of Seychelles, the Seselwa Rasin.


Unless this issue is put to Referendum, such presence is illegal and contrary to our laws and international law.

Most recently, I have watched carefully as the PRC has extended a hand to develop a large deep water port in Pakistan that cost your government a tidy sum of $ 1.2 Billion.

The recent effort to lure Pakistan into Seychelles diplomatic circles, and expand their sphere of influence in the Indian Ocean region is a highly charged and volatile move between your government and the Republic of Seychelles.

This is another example of your interference in our internal affairs. We do not approve of this reckless diplomatic move on your behalf.

I ask you and your country, to take note, that you are not welcome in Seychelles if your objective is to expand your sphere of influence into the Indian Ocean, and using our tiny island nation as a geo political football at the expense of the well being of the People of Seychelles.

Your country has done all that it can do in recent years to prop up a dictatorship. On one occasion, you even invited the Leader of the Opposition  to Beijing to soften him up to accept your meddling in Seychelles internal affairs. The VIP trip worked, and he was practically silenced on your involvement in Seychelles. You will be happy to know, that in SFP of the Six (6) executive committee members, Three (3) have already studied in PRC.

In the most firm diplomatic language, that can be used, I ask you to cease this conduct and this course of action that will only bring about greater instability to the Indian Ocean region.

Sincerely,



Christopher Gill
Leader
Seychelles Freedom Party

Why don't somebody from SFP stop JD from discrediting the party with all her personal views. Perhaps she should get better acquainted to the NWO before she starts tellings us which country to align ourself with.

A FREEDOM LOVING SESELWA

I am not telling anybody who we should align but as i beleive in democracy i beleive also that it is a legitimate right i have to express myself and that whether you agree with it or not,it call freedom of expression,and freedom of speech. A Communist state like China who protects dictatorship like Mynnar,N.korea;syria,Cuba,Zimbabwe and often uses it veto to save the ass of those rogue states and dictastors by using the pretext of not interfering in internal affairs of other countries have no place here.See for instance the massacre being committed by syrian dictator Assad each time the world wants to sanction him China veto,same to Mynaar ,in fact allowing any chinses present on our shores would automatic keep Pp on power forever for they would probably do anything and everything for Pp autocratic system for it would be the only system who can asure Chinese present of our shores .

Great move, Gill. What is the next step?

I think it's a good move but what I don't agree with is the critism of the SNP. I don't see the need for SFP to always appear to be competing with SNP, you will not rally support to your cause by doing this and it gives the sppf an excuse to manipulate the electorate by exploiting the division in the opposition. The SFP should do everything in its power to unite the opposition. I think this is the way forward.

The reality is that we donot not what RAM is after as we donot know what he has done for the last eighteen years playing Pp stooge party.He was called to joined a round table in order to pave the way forward instead is still visiting statehouse to make some secret deals with Pp.SNP supporters are complaining about RAM too,proof they did boycott RAm's meeting in Sulivan's garden,I think RAm instead of complaining about crtitism darted at him should conclude that he is the problem not the others.

The letter does not mention Ramkalawan except that he was ushered around in PRC by the Communist in an official visit while Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly.

This is factual. It is disgraceful as well.

SFP deals in facts and we do not play charades to make people in any party look good.

Facts are facts.

We need to learn to live with that.

Jeanne D'arc mentioned the lack of presence of Ramkalawan in Opposition Round Table meetings, and his under mining of those meetings to suit his own political survival agenda.

This is also factual.

Nothing to hide.

SFP considers SNP a weak opposition without backbone at this juncture.There is no difference between them or PDM in our minds.

If they want to unite the opposition, they can start by joining SFP, what is left of SNP.

We are the People of Seychelles without blood of our brothers on our hands, who have not sold our patrimony to foreigners.

Can SNP leadership say this , really?

We defend our patrimony and uplift her dignity and make all Seychellois proud of who they are.

We do not encourage Seychellois to live a life that is disgraceful.

Happy New Year!

Seselwa Unite!

There's Chinese education for you ! PRC will not be pleased with the result.

Anonymous said...

Pp will not be pleased because Pp expected all those who educated in China should have been automatically communists for Pp think if you studied in China you cann only be communists the same to those pp send to Cuba.

But those who studied in China then refuse to be Communist indoctrine are real Seychellois with their own brains and refuse to have a dear leader decide fro them.

Mr.Gill you are not as pure as the driven snow, don't forget you helped to consolidate the grip on power by the sppf when you crossed the floor in 1993/4, I'm not saying that the SNP does not have its faults, but the attitude of the SFP is not conducive to unity in the opposition camp and there's nothing that the sppf likes more. Put your big egos aside and do it for sake of the people you are suppose to represent and serve.

Is SFP a party for the rich? Are we fighting to for the 1% of Seychellois?

Anonymous said...

SFP is a party for the voiceless which are in the majority proof ônly a handful of gangsters are serving themselves in the people's coffers while our people are becoming poorer and slave in their own land.

Post 7.50 -If you a half -brained donkey i will remind you it is RAm who has been in the oppostion for eighteen years not SFP -SFp exists only a few months.What was RAm doing secretly in China?What was he negociating in China that he never told his supporters?

Reply to 1993/4-

I do not have a big ego.

I pushed for a round table of the opposition and for a united opposition for years.

Ramkalawan and SNP played games with this, and ended up in a Round Table with PL SPPF , with a divided opposition. This is where we are today.

Now who is walking in town with the big ego?

Talk sense, or take your nonsense somewhere else.

In 1993-94 onwards to 1998 it was James Mancham that aided SPPF to consolidate its power. Not me.

I suggest you check your historical bearings before making more senseless comments.

SFP does not have time for the low level comments. You know which rag you can put that type of rubbish in.

Please refrain.

Your ego is already over-deflated -that due to the exposure,pressure SFP are excercing on Pp thus no need to excert extra- pressure on you ,it might tear your apart.

Gill has done a brave and courageous move.

No one in the opposition had the balls to do it that is a fact.

Thank you Gill and SFP for standing up for Sesel and Sesel Pou Seselwa.

No one else is doing it, they are all working to fill their pockets.

Why did Ramkalawan not tell Seselwa about his trip to Communist China
?

Because it is an invention by Christopher Gill.

You might well ask why did the chicken cross the road ? And why should a chicken not cross the road ?

Gill can no longer tell facts from fiction. He is a joke.

As funny as it may sound as as ridiculous as this chicken comment may be, this one which you are trying to call the chicken is actually the man who gave you a boycott, the man who gave you a round table and at the same time he is the man who gave you a purpose and hope where the sell outs failed.

So tell me what happens to the three little pigs if Christopher gill did not turn up whit his big axe to chop the wolfs tail??

Simple pork chops and dinner for one!

Anonymous said...

Three little pigs hahah let me tell the story

"Three little pigs Wavel, Volcere and Boulle built their houses boulle out of straw, Volcere wood and ramkalawan bricks, unlike the before stories this one in order to buy the materials the three little pigs got the straw wood and bricks from the wolf who is parti lepep the main donor.

Little as they knew when the wolf gets hungry he calls in his debts, so came the time for the wolf to collect but luckily christopher gill the man who left the forest after seeing the wolf had friends like the jackals who said they protected him had purchased an axe.

Upon hearing that the wolf was calling in the debts Christopher rushed to the rescue and chopped off the wolfs tail.

As funny as it sound the three little pigs as one could say pork chops did not see gill as a savior but they were only seeing the axe that cut make fresh cuts into their meat.

Little did they know....

To be continued.....
