In 2012, the mumbo jumbo of James Michel will be brought to task. After years of fielding and faking a democracy under France Albert Rene, and then James Michel, the SPPF PL will be brought to task to deliver democracy in Seychelles and make a full and effective transition as recommended by the Commonwealth Observer Report of the 2011 “Sham Presidential Elections”.
The cost of faking democracy for Eighteen (18) years will now begin to tally. Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP) is pressing all necessary buttons to do its part to expose this sham and educate our people and the international community of the realities of Seychelles.
Seychelles Under UN Commission Human Rights Sanction
In 2012, the Seychelles PL government remains under UN Commission Human Rights Sanction for failing to submit a single country report as required by international conventions Seychelles is a signing party to for Eighteen (18) years. The former party of SFP the MSR did much work to expose the lack of commitment of the SPPF PL to respect human rights in Seychelles in 2011. Three (3) of Five(5) sample cases were MSR cases filed with the Centre of Civil and Political Rights in Geneve, Switzerland in 2011.
There were no other Human Rights complaints filed for this period, though a high ranking SNP official sits on the LUNGOS Board and a human rights organization in Seychelles.
Not filing country human rights reports is part of the SPPF-PL strategy to not impose any checks and balances on human rights abuse in order that political cleansing of Seychelles can persist as it did from 1977.
If there are no reports, thugs, killers, feel they can still operate freely as we have exposed numerous times in 2010 and 2011 in detailed factual letter, yet State House replied to not one single complaint. They do not reply because they want to persist with their political cleansing of national opponents.
On Human Rights Reporting, the Emperor is exposed and naked in 2012!
Fallacy of Piracy Alerts
Late in 2011, James Michel sent out a worldwide press release, calling the entire world to lend a hand in the fight against piracy in the Indian Ocean.
By that untimely press release, the world had already responded to the piracy threat in Somalia and in fact between August and December 2011, successful hostage taken by Somalia pirates was down - 60% from last year.
The reduction according to experts on piracy is due to a systematic coordinated response by the international community over the threat. Even Filipino seamen must now receive training in piracy deterrence before accepting employment contract on merchant ships.
To date, James Michel has failed to arm or even train our Seychellois fishermen on how to deal with a pirate attack.
Instead, he has systematically used the Somalia piracy issue as a false pretext to open doors for Communist PRC by open invitation, to set up a military base in Seychelles, which we all know has been the PRC long term ambition for decades now. Michel has done this to try to get millions of dollars over and above the $10 Million PRC will fund his government this year. The hunger for hard cash has blinded Michel’s view of the need to maintain stability in the region.
The presence of PRC Communist troops in Seychelles is wholesaling of our patrimony by James Michel in my opinion and it violates the principles of “Sesel Pou Seselwa”.
All Seychellois who love their country must resist any attempt by James Michel to post foreign troops on Seychelles soil. Every voice will count.
Trying to milk PRC of money to prop himself and his failed regime, and selling Seychelles to another Communist country the Emperor is naked in 2012!
UAE Troops in Seychelles 2012
Michel has made a similar request to UAE for stationing of troops on Seychelles soil. UAE has funded a $15 Million military base. Again this was done under the pretext of fighting piracy, but it is in fact a source of troops to protect James Michel government from its own people and Khalifa interests in Seychelles which is expanding every year, through a systematic land grab effort, sanctioned by James Michel.
Khalifa’s troops are not welcome in Seychelles. All Seychellois must state this point and make it clear to defend the principle of “Sesel Pou Seselwa”.
This scared principle is the only principle that can successfully repel those who have illusions of grandeur to take over our country and keep Seychellois as 3rd class citizens husking coconuts for a living.
In national partnership with “all Freedom Loving Seychellois”, Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP) and myself stand ready to defend our territorial integrity and restore our national dignity, which James Michel ,in our opinion, has degraded, beyond the imagination of any respectable Seychellois, that loves Seychelles.
Trying to help Sheik Khalifa expand his sphere of influence into the Indian Ocean, and protect himself, selling our patrimony, sapping the dignity of each Seychellois, the Emperor is naked in 2012!
ICC Crimes Reported By SFP
At SFP we have noticed an abnormal amount of murders and disappearances-the victims are all from a common “political national grouping”.
We have been perplexed why no opposition party has ever taken action on this matter. Hence, to start off the year, we got the ball rolling late in 2011 to write to the ICC and make a preliminary list of those persons murdered, but the culprits have never been brought to justice. Silence has reigned for years, as we perked politicians with salary increases and excessive pensions for life.
In line with this, our research revealed that Seychelles is an assenting signing country to the UN Convention on Prevention and Punishment of Genocide (May 1992).
By definition, these murders, acts of torture, bodily dismemberment, gutting, fit squarely into the genocide definitions because they involved “the killing, torture, and victimization of a national group…that opposed the F.A. Rene one party state regime”.
In timely conjunction with these murders, during the Rene Era, there was open victimization of political groups that opposed his regime.
Many were jailed, and many more were exiled by force, or by sheer intimidation. These crimes against humanity and the Seychellois people have never been reconciled, or investigated. Not even an apology has ever been tendered.
This too forms part of the Genocide package of political cleansing that the SPPF implemented from 1977 onwards, and during 1993, onwards, the SPPF continued the practice of political cleansing of Seychelles through a systematic implementation of Security Clearance, cronyism, access to opportunities, while denying the opposing national groups the same, except for political figures, who were caressed into silence with perks, fat cat salaries, fat pensions for life, even tax free cars, in some cases free cars every Three (3) years.
The lack of solid opposition pressure, has given the SPPF PL a free ride. Hence why, since 1977, not a single case of corruption has ever been brought against a single SPPF crony. If any knows of one, please name him.
No country can progress without redeeming and absolving itself of its past bad deeds.
The Emperor has failed to bury the murdered in silence and 2012, he is exposed before the international community!
Now there will be nothing to buy in the opposition camp that can save you from Justice!
Round Table For Democratization of Seychelles
After the political impasse brought about by the BOYCOTT results of the National Assembly elections, many asked me: “what next?” I immediately, wrote in Seychelles Today, an article calling for a Round Table of all parties to discuss the process forward.
I am happy to report that my request was met by all parties, even by those that said they would not attend the meetings.
In January and February 2012, a national Round Table is due to take place on Electoral Reforms and democratization of Seychelles . It is unfortunate that the SNP NDP have decided to meet and form their own strategies without the SFP in dialogue, yet it was the SFP that pushed their hand into a Boycott.
Though we called for a united opposition for years now, and recently, a call for a Round Table of the opposition to form a common front line against the SPPFPL, they have chosen to face SPPFPL through private meetings, and apparently collusion, without the knowledge of the Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP). This is highly unfortunate for their supporters.
I ask these leaders to reconsider seriously what is at stake, and join with us in dialogue, to form a common strategy forward for Seychelles.
Seychelles needs us all to look beyond personal financial gain through politics at this time. Seychelles needs us all too truly serve her and her people selflessly as true patriots of our motherland.
By facing SPPF PL divided, you are only making them stronger and lending a hand at their effort to politically cleanse Seychelles of opponents in order to give them a free hand to set up Communist base in Seychelles, and give Sheik Khalifa what he wants in the Indian Ocean, now his extended sphere of influence thanks to Mr. James Michel, a sell out leader.
Impending Commonwealth Sanction
If Seychelles does not complete the task of full transition to democracy, which as we can see, we are far from achieving, we will face SUSPENSION from the Commonwealth group of nations in the near future. The warning signs have been posted. It will not be dissimilar to what Pakistan or Zimbabwe went through in the recent past.
Communist Lack of Sincerity
The SPPF was never sincere about democracy. Today we all see this. One photo recently taken by an SFP informant at a meeting at Iles Perservans, showed PL supports holding up a sign that says: “ Iles Perservans 100% PL!”
Well, if PL gives out houses only to itself and politically victimizes housing applicants in the opposition, then it is not committed to democracy clearly, it is only implementing another level of political cleansing, which is not dissimilar to ethnic cleansing as seen in Rwanda, only the means are different, the end is the same.
If Iles Perservans is 100% PL, then PL SPPF has succeeded in its effort at political cleansing.
The Emperor is naked in 2012 even at Iles Perservans!
Let us see what all the talk about sincerity is all about in 2012!
Sesel Pou Seselwa!
May God Bless All Freedom Loving Seychellois!
