Human Right Letter by ambassador Tall


Mrs Navanethem Pillay,

Office Of The United Nations Commissioner For Human Rights,

Palais Wilson,

52 Rue Des Paquis,

CH 1201 Geneva,

Switzerland.

Sunday 15th January 2012.



Dear Madam,



I would like to direct your attention to an ongoing and persistent pattern of politically motivated harassment, detention and torture of Government opponents in the Seychelles. Mr. Jean Paul Isaac, the General Secretary of the Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP), was wrongfully arrested on January 5th 2012 following written comments on Facebook regarding drug trafficking in the Seychelles. He was taken by four Police Officers from his Office in Victoria and unlawfully detained without charge for several hours at the Central Police Station. This was an alarming development considering that on a previous occasion, Mr. Isaac had suffered severe beatings and injuries while held in police custody.



Mr. Jean Paul Isaac’s latest experience follows a long and well established pattern of political oppression that began on the 5th of June 1977 when an illegal Government was forcefully imposed on the people of Seychelles following a coup d’etat led by France Albert Rene. All members of the opposition that disagreed and opposed the one party Government of the Seychelles were imprisoned, murdered or forced into exile. Albert Rene hired assassins who tracked down and brutally murdered opposition leader Mr. Gerard Hoarau in the UK. Those who dared remain in Seychelles were imprisoned, tortured and murdered by goon squads loyal to Rene. Some political opponents vanished without trace in a reign of terror that had never before been witnessed in the history of the Seychelles.



By the time any kind of political movement was again tolerated in the Seychelles, Rene and his supporters had fully consolidated their grip on the reins of power. Opposition parties were nothing more than a political cosmetic for legitimizing Rene’s Government in the eyes of the world. It was no surprise when Mr. James Alix Michel, the longest serving member of Rene’s cabinet, replaced Rene as the President of Seychelles to the edge of economic and political bankruptcy. Under the smokescreen of a “Somali Piracy” threat, he has invited foreign troops to protect his regime against growing internal political opposition in the Seychelles and the Seychellois community living overseas. Seychelles is now host to Gurkha troops from Nepal, soldiers from UAE and has even invited the Chinese to build a Naval Base in the Seychelles.



Not trusting the loyalties of his own countryman, Michel hired Irish Mercenaries as Police Officers posting them in key positions even giving them three times the wages paid to Local Police Officers. The foreign and Ex- Irish Mercenaries did not waste any time in demonstrating a profound brutality towards ordinary Seychellois citizens while maintaining fierce loyalty to their boss James Michel. Yet he was not content with harassing and humiliating the Seychellois people with his “Paramilitary Troop”. Using the “drug problem” as an excuse he created the National Drug Enforcement Agency (NDEA) which has quickly evolved into the de facto KGB of the Seychelles. Under the pretence of “drug investigations” the NDEA has been granted the mandate to breach the Human rights Charter even to place each and every Seychellois citizen under physical and electronic surveillance, including monitoring the messages that Mr. Jean Paul Isaac posted on his Facebook Wall even if they have to violate the terms and privacy policy of the user from the (ISP) Internet Service Provider source.



It culminated in the recent boycott of National Assembly elections in the Seychelles by two third of eligible voters. The most that the people of Seychelles could muster ion the way of a public protest without risking their lives in a direct confrontation with the foreign troops that Michel has stationed in the Seychelles to perpetuate his regime. We now live under the heel of a brutal and reckless regime which has never been asked to account for its oppression against the people of Seychelles.



I would appreciate you sending a representative to investigate and report on this matter that is of great importance to the Seychelles and its place in the world community. Thank You.



Yours Sincerely

Gary E Tall. (SEYCHELLES FREEDOM PARTY REPRESENTATIVE UNITED KINGDOM)

International judges sentenced former Liberian President Charles Taylor to 50 years in prison Wednesday, saying he was responsible for “some of the most heinous and brutal crimes recorded in human history” by arming and supporting Sierra Leone rebels in return for “blood diamonds.”

The 64-year-old warlord-turned-president is the first former head of state convicted by an international war crimes court since World War II and judges said they had no precedent when deciding his sentence.

The Special Court for Sierra Leone convicted Taylor last month on 11 charges of aiding and abetting the rebels who went on a brutal rampage during that country’s decade-long war that ended in 2002 with more than 50,000 dead.

Taylor showed no emotion as he stood while Lussick handed down what was effectively a life sentence.

Prosecutors had asked for an 80-year sentence; Taylor’s lawyers urged judges to hand down a sentence that offered him some hope of release before he dies.

Hollis said the sentence would only provide a measure of closure for victims of one of Africa’s most savage conflicts.

“The sentence that was imposed today does not replace amputated limbs. It does not bring back those who were murdered,” she said. “It does not heal the wounds of those who were victims of sexual violence and does not remove the permanent emotional and psychological and physical scars of those enslaved or recruited as child soldiers.”

But the judge added that Taylor was “in a class of his own” compared to others convicted by the United Nations-backed court.

“The special status of Mr. Taylor as a head of state puts him in a different category of offenders for the purpose of sentencing,” Lussick said.

Taylor’s lead attorney, Courtenay Griffiths, warned that the court’s refusal to take into account Taylor’s decision to step down from power following his indictment in 2003 when setting his sentence sent a worrying message against the backdrop of ongoing atrocities allegedly being committed by Syrian government forces.

“What lesson does that send to President Assad?” Griffiths said. “Maybe the lesson is: If you are a sitting leader and the international community wants to get rid of you either you get murdered like Col. Gadhafi, or you hang on until the bitter end. I’m not so sure that’s the signal this court ought to be transmitting at this particular historical juncture.”

At a sentencing hearing earlier this month, Taylor expressed “deepest sympathy” for the suffering of victims of atrocities in Sierra Leone, but insisted he had acted to help stabilize the West Africa region and claimed he never knowingly assisted in the commission of crimes.

“What I did...was done with honor,” he said. “I was convinced that unless there was peace in Sierra Leone, Liberia would not be able to move forward.”

Judges rejected that argument, saying that while he posed as a peacemaker he was covertly funning the flames of conflict by arming rebels in full knowledge they would likely use weapons to commit terrible crimes.

Prosecutors said there was no reason for leniency, given the extreme nature of the crimes, Taylor’s “greed” and misuse of his position of power.

“The purposely cruel and savage crimes committed included public executions and amputations of civilians, the display of decapitated heads at checkpoints, the killing and public disembowelment of a civilian whose intestines were then stretched across the road to make a check point, public rapes of women and girls, and people burned alive in their homes,” prosecutor Brenda Hollis wrote in a brief appealing for the 80-year sentence.

Taylor stepped down and fled into exile in Nigeria after being indicted by the court in 2003. He was finally arrested and sent to the Netherlands in 2006.

While the Sierra Leone court is based in that country’s capital, Freetown, Taylor’s trial is being staged in Leidschendam, a suburb of The Hague, for fear holding it in West Africa could destabilize the region.

%th June was a day of sorrow for seychellois.When we were grsnted indenependence most Seychellois thought at last the colinial master had packed his package and was gone for good.The euphria of indepedence lasted up one little year.For then a gang of criminal raped their independence and forcibly opposed on them the worst form of system one can imagine namely Dictatorship.The consequences of dictatorship has ruine our ceconomyand country.We are poorer than before independence.

PP told us 5 th June is a day to celebrate oand praise those who liberate us.Well the fact is Seychellois liberated themslves and if there is a horo it is the people of Seychelles themselves.And secondly,Zonm lIBRE is the symbol of tyranny and it does not represent any ophysical hero for there was none in the gan of crooks who raped our democracy in 1977.Zonmlibre is just a piece of cast iron and no seychellois is that fool to believe that a piece of cast iron which represent more the AK รง/ pp used to raped our democracy than any Human being such as seychelles real Heros CASTOR; GERALD HOUREAU,.

Heros PP are people who hve done great things for the people and country,not a piece of cast iron called Zonmlibre donkeys.

The dealine for PP thugs is 2016,by now i expect them to condcut genuine refroms that might save their ass.Another 25 years,this could be ther minimum prison sentence for those crooks.

On zonmlibre.We saw Pp disllusion on the 5th June,only a handful of ilks dreesed in communist red T-shirts were present,no even the butcher ,the mastermind of the gang.The butcher who usually take all opportunity to preach ,did not even give us a five- second monolog,which often last hours like Catros monolog.

What has ahppen to all those crooks we saw in the past adoring PP's symbol of tyranny?They no longer beleive in there demi-god?
