After Pressure From MSR-SFP Citizenship Bill Surfaces
Minister Joel Morgan was on SBC in Extra, Extra, to reveal to the Public what his intentions are behind the Bill which falls under the purview of his ministry.
A MSR-SFP Partial Victory
Clearly, the PL have succumb to the pressures of the MSR and SFP who have single handedly exposed the bogus practice of: 1. Selling passports, 2. Allowing GOP workers to become Citizens, 3. Not making it easier for a person married Bona Fide to a Seychellois(e) to become a citizen, 4. Not provinding for a permanent resident status for non citizens. All these points, MSR and SFP have fought hard to expose the PL and the weakness in the process of attaining citizenship in Seychelles.
The PL being obsessed with the keeping of power, have provided that if any citizens get out of hand, they will cancel their citizenship.
This is another gross violation of human rights, not matter what a citizen has done. If a citizen commits a crime, he must do the time. To revoke citizenship will lead the citizen without a country. He will become a ward of the United Nations and international litigation will follow when such drastic measures are taken over a citizen. The provision renders the Constitution of Seychelles nothing more than toilet paper.
The Economic Development Act (EDA) that had so much heat from OECD and tarnished Seychelles reputation so badly in 1994, is back in the form of the Citizenship Bill/Act. Under these provisions, a person can be granted citizenship by depositing investing $ 1 Million in Seychelles. Today, we know that is not more than a little house at Eden Island, or a single barefoot charter catamaran. Who are you kidding PL?
In no time like in 1994, the Sunday Times will be down to invest $ 1 Million to be granted citizenship. Ironically, the PL has never prosecuted and jailed anyone in Seychelles for money laundering, corruption charges. misuse of public funds.
What does that say about our Citizenship under PL?
Sesel Pou Seselwa!
May God Bless All Real Freedom Loving Seychellois!
