The Seychelles Freedom Party Exposes the Case of Le Mariniere Tenant versus The Marine port Authority.
After a very extensive investigation in the case of John Desaubin against Andre Ciseau of the marine port authority, the Seychelles freedom party has this to unveil. According to unconfirmed news just prior not to renew the license of tenant John Desaubin at Le Marinier it is allege that a meeting was held at the office of France Bonte companied by Mr. Desaubin famous business man Joe Albert and his right hand man Cyril Bonnelame.
Unconfirmed news of the meeting has it that Joe Albert had approached Mr. Desaubin to come to an agreement on handing over the lease of his business to him for an agreed sum so that they can have the place ready before the new and biggest Cat Coco ferry’s arrival. The meeting according to source though unconfirmed was to assure MR. Desaubin that if he agrees to go ahead with the submission of the business lease no one would attempt to neither stop the transaction from undertaking nor pose to obstruct its intent. A little similar to the hostile takeover of the Plantation club through government implications
Allegedly this meeting was to confirm that the government support would be all for the deal with MR. Desaubin.
Further to our investigations we found out that when MR. Cyril Bonnelame approached the port authority to conclude the transaction John Desaubin never heard from them again. Only a few months later MR. John Desaubin received a document from Andre Ciseau under his orders notifying him of the ports intention not to renew his lease for any longer term as Ciseau’s predecessor had promised.
Some would call this an Alcapone move, State of the Art Straight Through the heart!
Unconfirmed as may be the meeting between Cyril Bonnelame and Ciseau must have triggered a new deal from the eyes of the people of Seychelles following the case closely as has been the case in many other take over’s through power, greed and disrespect. Sought for clarification is still on the way and we welcome the entities involved to correct us on the issue. Some Seychellois even went as far as to suggest that John Desaubin was being removed from Le Marinier with malicious intent in view of the state of the transaction such as to facilitate a new arrangement for Le Mariniere.
All this born from his plaint on abuse of Human Rights featured in the Seychelles NGO Report submitted to UNHCR criticized by the Seychelles minister for foreign affairs, whom currently is under scrutiny for allowing a sentenced in absentia for crimes against the People of Tunisia Sakhr El Materi request for political asylum shelter in paradise. All this in Seychelles where he minister Jean-Paul Adam Proclaims we are in a Democracy; yet harboring a criminal and a dictatorship.
The SFP request that the FIU assist to rule out any transaction if ever done on state owned property to stifle rights and freedom by abuse of government authority power.
Notice of malice is present says a young lawyer from the court on this case and the lawyer went even as far as to propose that the legal counsel for John Desaubin should seek redress for defamation when on national media Mr.Ciseau as well as the head of the Seychelles licensing authority claimed John Desaubin was operating le Mariniere bar and restaurant with take away illegally. “The argument is as follows: Why did the licensing authority not petition the court to execute an injunction against the day to day functions of le Mariniere when the license expired? Why the state attorney representing port authority did did not do the same as well if they were fully aware of the license state of le Mariniere?”
The inspection visits conducted by health, tourism, fire brigade and licensing not notify the owner that the license for operations was not in order?
The Seychelles Freedom Party will disclose more in the matter as soon as we get in contact with parties involved in the case.
