Is Seychelles Judiciary Delivering Blind Justice?

Today Ralph Volcere Editor in Chief of the Seychelles Weekly paper was in court to face down an order that he be remanded to prison for commenting on the case of PDM VS Election Commission. The Supreme Court of Seychelles was surrounded early in the morning with armed state police numbering 30 to 35 in total.  The Public was prevented and obstructed by armed men from entering the Supreme Court of Seychelles grounds and premises, to view the case in the court room and many were barred from entering court premises by armed state police and armed military personnel. 

Apparently the order to place these military personnel on court grounds was an order issued by State House, Executive Branch of Government. It appears to the Public that the military personnel are in direct command by James Michel. It also appears that the Commissioner of Police has not been requested to place police officers at the Court house by any judge, and in fact, this is an order from State House, which has overtly usurped the independence of the Judiciary. Thus, the veracity of the claims against Mr. Ralph Volcere, cannot be tested. For justice must not only be seen to be done, but it must be served. 

Judge Duncan Gaswaga in full court called upon SP Cecile of the Seychelles Police force and asked him to clear the court grounds and allow the public to take part in the proceedings to be witnesses to justice being served. This is standard in any democratic society. The Court reserved judgment and will deliver a decision at a later date.

With such gross and obvious interference by the Executive Branch of government in this judicial affair, and the overt use of state police, to intimidate the public and the accused in the case, which has subjugated the Judiciary as an inferior branch of government to the Executive Branch, the only proper course of action by any court, facing a similar standoff, by the Executive Branch of government, is to dismiss the vexatious case. 

To make matters worse and add salt to the wound of Seychelles fake democracy, the Attorney General pleaded to add a Fourth more charge against Mr. Volcere.

Who will sue the Executive Branch run by James Michel for interfering in the work of the Judiciary in Seychelles? Who will demand now, that the Commissioner of Police, resign for abdication of his constitutional role and his independence from State House?

Given a free hand, dictators always trample on the Judiciary, not to mention the Free Press and of course, the editors of the same. The Commissioner of Police gets the same treatment as the Judges from dictators.

Pathetic.

Gaswaga is a smart cookie. He knows his judiciary is under attack as much as Ralph Volcere(who symbolises the fight for freedom). But will Gaswaga have the guts to do what is right and lock up Govinden for wasting court time. Govinden operates on the basis that the courts will do whatever Parti Lepep wants. Just like Govinden does, despite holding a constitutional office that should be independent of James Miche.

Parti Lepep and James Michel have always had problems with the constitutional democracy palaver and have always remained in their one-party state mode. Michel does not realise that constitutional office holders like judges, attorney general, police commissioner, CAA etc do not take orders from him.

I think Volcere symbolizes the fight of stupidity to get out of a mess.

However, he does not deserve such a brash handling, in spite of his stupidity.

There is no democracy in Seychelles Palaver.

What the fuck are you mumbling.

Not only must Justice be done; it must also be seen to be done.

Under Parti Lepep, justice is only seen to be done.

We never had justice under Pp communists, for Pp is the LAW.As the old adage goes"ignorance of the law is no excuse.It could be said equally that arrogance execuses ignorance of the law.

PP arbitary justice against Volcere is politcally motivated and it seems PP does not even sure of whether it has a case at all,for PP kangaroon justice has added more charges to Voclere case.

Pp tells us its act against Volcere is lawful.But what about Michel's sell out of our patrimony to Khalifa?What about Discrimation being perpetuated by PP in regards to housing?What about all these money disappeared from our coffers?Waht about Human rights voilation?etc..etc ..etc are these lawful PP?Whn would justice investigate all those unconstituional acts being perpetuated by the butcher and his gang of crooks?

Time to get rid of those monkeys.

What seems to be a new development in our jusdiciary is the fact or at least i have the impression that some Seychellois judges have decided not to let thmeselves belittel by an idiot to the likes of Michel.It seems they want to do their jobs professionally and according to rule of law and the constitution.I will hope that Seychellois like Dodin and others continue on this path of indepency of the judiciary and resist any crooked attempt from PP to deliverd according the regime will.

Is that a change of in our judiciray being undertaken by our Seychellois judges who want to see justice deliver by the book or just attempts to give us the impression that our justice system somehow has its independency?

Judges like Mr.DoBIN should continue doing what thy are doing now namely respecting the law repgardless of what pressure Pp thugs might put on them and they must know should pp challenge them or intimidate them,we the peole will be there ready to defence them.So no panic ,no fear of any Pp intimidations that might come up,just inform SFP which will then inform the mass in order that they give you the support you might need.

The Judges must decide who makes rulings: State House or the Bench.

Simple.

People of Seychelles have been patient. But patience is now running short.

I urge all Seychellois to pray for due diligence of our leadership to deliver true democracy to Seychelles.

I urge all Seychellois to expose all those who sell Seychelles patrimony and in that way deny us the right to our motherland.

Mr Volcère is accused under section 114 of the Penal Code of attempting to prejudice Court of Appeal judge Matilda Twomey, calculating to lower her authority, showing intentional disrespect to the judicial proceedings in which the Court of Appeal was hearing the Popular Democratic Movement’s petition against a ruling of the Constitutional Court, and contempt of court under common law as contained in the English Law.

Mr Volcère allegedly committed the offence on December 9 when he published an article referring to the judge and other members of the Court of Appeal panel under the heading: Dirty tactics to get David Pierre into the Assembly. Seychelles Nation

Does it not look like Govinden is frabricating charges and is having great difficulty doing so ? He is basically saying that there is a "law" that says Irish bummer Twomey can't be criticised.

In taking such ridiculous charges to a court is showing total contempt for the courts, as contemptible Govinden is behaving as is he knows for certain that judges will do Parti Lepep's bidding even where no laws of Seychelles have been broken.

Pathetic !

Talk and bog educates our people.

Taking to the streets is only one tactic. There are many. It must be calculated, with a clear strategy.

The first step is unity of opposition to face Communist.

I have written to all leaders in opposition to call on them to put their differences aside and cooperate to see full DEMOCRATIZATION of Seychelles.

Nor do Christain take order from terrorists.And Seycheelois will ever let imported and an arcahic fate dictate to us wwhat we must,should do in our Christian land,They can do it in UAE,Saudi ARABIA,IRAN,Afghanitan,Pakistan,Somali,Sudan,Nigeria,Yemen but not here in our Christain land else we will do what we think we should to defence our Christian land form islamic crusade.Those Kamels abuse Democracy like we see inEurope not promote their archaic fate and even want to impose to sovereign governemnt like CANADA to introduce SHIRA law in their constitution as if CANDA is an isalmic state or Canadian should abide by their Dictation becuase Muhammed says so.Thses kalems do not believe in democracy but the abuse refugees and statelss conventions to illegallly enter western world thus christian countires just to after force their fate on others in their own country.In French Marsailles-the French have let themdevelop for years now that now they even illegally blocked roads in Mrsailles during prayers as if the French are muslim as France a muslim SDtae.In Canade the governemnt even gave up from their fanatism by allowing to introduce SHAIRA law in their constitution which is now provokating mass protests from the Canadians.We should do like the Frech,Denaish,and overEuropean countires are doing to protect their society send those criminals back to their arcaic home and cultre then allowing them to abuse democratic practices which they donot bleieve in for the Koran is the only book they follow ,for them all the rest are anti-Allah or none bleivers that shoudl be illiminated as Muhammed has dictated to them.

We will fight all attempt by foreigners to impose their ill fate on us.

You suffering for the exposure like all pp crooks.

The fact of the matter is that SFP hurt the butcher in the most vulnerable part of his psyche,his fragile ego.it is too muchto bear for a man who perceives himself to be a demigod.He cannot jack up SFP on crimes or any charges.He can not confront and challenge SFP articles and findings factually and analytically in a free and open forum.The only thing he can do is to intimidate his opponents like you are trying to do,but you know this generation is not afraid of a frail old donkey who does not know even his name nor from cronies who thought their Dear leader would rule ofr iternity,you feeling the heat and be sure it will be hotter and hotter as the months pass by.

In the old western times, the worse and lowest thing a man could do is wear a dead man's shoe.

The next worse thing a man could do is use another man's name.

After that, is use or fabricate a man's words.

The person using Jean Paul Issac's name is a pathetic loser.

Ignore him.

As for attributing comments to me, all I can say, is expect weird things to come from the intellectually bankrupt.

The petty is always also the lowly loser engrossed in frustration and energy that goes no where.

Gill, you saw yesterday that James Michel was elected, in a fashion, by Parti Lepep congress as President. As he can't seem to manage without Lise Bastienne by his side, she too was elected to the Central Committee.

Ramkalawan was democratically re-elected leader of SNP last year, without a whiff of a sex scandal in the air.

When will you and David Pierre hold a congress so that you can be democratically elected as leader of your fringe parties ?

There is not enough SFP communist thugs to call for a conference. Dictator Gill has already appointed himself as the self styled president in waiting and Jean Paul Isaac as the vice president.
History will repeat itself when another Mancham....errr part of...is ousted by his vice president!

Attention civilised Seychellois brothers and sisters: be there on February 4 to support the Muslims protest. Come down all they need our support. Bring bacon, ham and roast pork for all of them. They need to eat it to have strength to continue in their march for freedom to terrorise.

Yesterday Michel elected himself:In communsit one is not elected by democrtic norms but chosen by hand-picked at the Polit buro level.TO prove that you will see next year that the butcher will handed over power to Faure beucase the latter was hand-picked long by RENE to follow Michel inorder to ensure that no one who is not hardcore communists get to power by being freely chosen and no other candidates will dare presenting his candidacy with the risk of being sacked for the party for not following what has benne dicated by the polite buro ,for there is a risk that they change and thus pose a threat to Rene and Michel namley facing justice fir their crimes.

Christopher Gill is the venerable leader of the Seychelles Fake Party (SFP) and self proclaimed saviour and liberator of the people of Seychelles. He occasional have lunch and dinner with GOD always coming back to complain about the cooking of GOD’s other half! If you gaze up in the heavens on a good day and you see a white cloud with a rainbow, that is Christopher’s fart! His quest for this fake liberation started when as a young boy growing up under the coconut trees of Guam dreamt of a great man by the name of France Albert Rene who despite all odds started a quest to liberate his people from the evil clutches of Christopher’ Uncle shouting the battle cry “Sesel Pou Seselwa!”
Alas this slogan has now been high jacked by Christopher Gill and his man Friday Popol.
Popol’s biography would be of great interest to you. He is currently at war with Islam.
He wants to go down in history as the man who started the tenth crusade and the battleground being Seychelles. Please don’t mistake the war with the Somalian pirates as this crusade despite the Somaliens being Muslims and Popol uncannily resembling a Somalien himself which won’t be strange considering that most of us comes from the many different tribes of mainland Africa, me being from the Bantu tribe of course.
Popol’s grudge with the Muslim population of Seychelles is because when he went to convert to Islam they chopped of his lapo kok and when he decided that Islam was not for him and he wanted to convert to Jehovah’s Witness the local Imam couldn’t replace his foreskin and Popol hasn’t been happy with his bald headed dick since!
Popol and Gill want to write their own story from a stolen script but unfortunately they are suffering from writer’s block considering they are two block heads themselves!
