Canadian Navy Lieutenant In Arabian Gulf In Mystery Death

MAHE, SEYCHELLES // The crew of a Canadian warship are resuming their duties in waters off the UAE and Oman while coming to terms with the death of one of their comrades in mysterious circumstances.

Lieutenant Andrew Webster, 33, was serving on the frigate HMCS Toronto, which since last February has been taking part in antipiracy and counter-terrorism operations in the Arabian Sea.
She docked at Abu Dhabi last February and visited Dubai in April and November.
Lt Webster was found dead in his hotel room while on shore leave on Mahe, the main island of the Seychelles, after the vessel docked there.
The circumstances of his death remain unclear. A post-mortem examination was carried out and a Seychelles official said he died of asphyxia.
However, Sadie Toulany, a public affairs officer with the Royal Canadian Navy, said: “The exact circumstances remain under investigation by the Seychelles authorities and the Canadian Forces Military Police.
“We are aware that a spokesperson from the Seychelles Police authority has indicated a cause of death.
“However, we are not in a position to confirm any additional information as the military police investigation into this incident is still ongoing.”
Lt Webster, from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, was found dead on January 2. His remains were flown home to Canada on Monday and a private military funeral is to be held at Dartmouth on Saturday.
HMCS Toronto left Mahe’s Port Victoria on Monday to return to the Arabian Sea.
Lt Webster, who was married, had served in the navy for nearly 15 years and took part in two major operations in the region. He joined the Toronto last July and was the ship’s combat officer.
The vessel’s commander, Matthew Bowen, said: “It’s a difficult time for the entire ship’s company. Andrew was an outstanding naval officer. His forthright and outgoing nature inspired those around him.”
Friends and relatives have been posting tributes online. One said: “I have never met another human being that smiled as much as Andrew.”
Another wrote: “I am truly very thankful for the great times that I had with Andrew. We shared many laughs.”
The Toronto will remain in the Gulf until she is relieved by another warship, HMCS Regina.
The Toronto has intercepted and destroyed seven drug shipments weighing a total of 7.8 tonnes during her deployment in the region.

  1. It is a misery because it seems there are lots of mystereis behind his death which forced PP not ot even made public the information to Seychellois.It is become more misterious knowing how far those Arab tyrrants could go when dealing with overs which also explain why Seychellois never love them and do not want their present in our land.
    DId an Arba pricnelless felt in love with him and for that he must be elliminate becuase Khalfia brother did not like that?Did he came across something secret that would put those Arab tyrrants in problem such as big drugs cargo etc... that he must be elliminated .All these are speculation that need to be taken into consdieration knowing the criminal implusion that throws in the blood viens of those primitive Arab tyrannt.

    I am sure the CANADINA would find out to some exrend what went wrong--FOrensic experts would surely make the corps speaks out and we will know if the soldier was murder or not.Whatever the end result everything seem to show that he was murder so how.

  3. You know when pp stays silence and hide facts there is alwys something more serious behide it.And i am convinced the Candain forensic experts will make the corps speaks out.Pp thought it ETOPSIE would be accepted by the CANADIAN authority thus the real cause washed away.But The Canadian knows that pp donkeys are uncapble.incompetent, in anything they do and what pp is attempting to Sell them is trash.I am Sure FAURE is having sleepness nights for he knows the Canadian would prove PP wrong which would be another scam by pp that would tarnished once again our cvountry image abroad as in Sex salve traffic,Drug traffic,illegal arm sell,its participation in Rwnada genocide .Money laundering etc.etc.et..

  4. I cannot agree more with the previous comment posted earlier, so let me reiterate what was said by Anonymous of 8 January 2014 17:40
    "If it is asphyxiation without natural causes, it is murder! Morgan and his Police Commissioner Quatre should know that!
    Everyone knows why Quatre stayed with the Police force for 47 years! He is a 'do nothing' idiot who does not ruffle feathers, and Morgan loves those kind of 'see nothing' 'say nothing' and 'hear nothing'. A medal for being a supporter of PP would be more appropriate, don't you think so Joel?"
    How can someone worked for 47 years! almost half a century! must be another first for Seychelles and the world!

    1. Wow! half a century! and he is not talking about retiring soon! This guy must be having it good where he is. He must be stealing or something fishy going on like building a mansion on top of a mountain as everyone does in Seychelles with fraudulent resources.

  5. Arab terorists Michel had brought are committed crime in Seychelles.US,Canada,Britain,France have to watch out their marine when staying in Seychelles in the future.Terorists are not using bomb,but using other tactic to kill foreign soldiers on our soil.

  10. In Nation yesterday Mr. Faure was preaching about VALER POUR MWAN VALER POUR NOU TOU. This can be translated as FAMILY VALUES or almost. Someone touches on this subject not too long ago and we all know who doesn't follow what they preached. YES, its them the SPUP/SPPF/PP regime. Example JAM has no respect for the high office in Seychelles. I will not go in details cause WE all know the SHAME he did! Actually SPUP started this VALUE in NYS after the famous 77 coup. They were teaching the pti trezor of what FAURE was preaching yesterday! SESEL SA. We need changes badly in this country of ours. Give your support to SFP for real values of the Seychellois born, breed in the Seychelles and don't let arabs change our culture and the natural beauty.

  11. After 20 long years away, I was in Seychelles this Christmas. Its all changed. I felt like a foreigner in my own country. The natural beauty of Beau Vallon is no longer. The amount of houses springing up the mountainside without much concern from anyone is a shame, especially the one at La Misere. Sesel nepli pou Seselwa.

  12. Communist indoctrination canot be considered as value.Values are fundamental beliefs,They are the principles we used to define waht which is rights.Dictatorship which is nothing than State terrorism can in anyway be consider as values.Values provide guidance as we determine the right verse the wrong.Do not tell us doubling your salary and gifting yourself pension for life has something to do with values.Enslavement of others is a criminal act which might holds criminal values but not ethic and moral values FAURE.

    It that what you have learned in Cuba about vlaues Faure?

  13. LAER POU MWAN VALER POU NOU TOU----is called democracy,respectng human Rights with all that it entails from Freedom of expression,freedom to choice our leader in free and fair election etc.etc..etc..

    For instance,those who have strong family values beleive that families shoulkd eat meals together or those of us who have strong Christian values find it import to attend church each Sunday and so on.

    Even Communssit political theory on values "theorically advocates ,equality ,a classless, society,than FAURE ,FAR,Michel rapped our democracy and forcefully create a Dictatorship that destroyed all moral.ethic values by creating a CLAN system.The values that FAURE refers too,are in fact upotain and asectic values.

    As MArtin L King put it"If we are to go forward,we must go back a rediscover those precious values--that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control"In other words,Should FAURE rediscover real moral,ethic values he should have GOD in the picture and to gain the spritual control he must convert himself from Atheist to Christinity or else then only maybe with the help of almight God he could regain his moral and spiritual values not by reading Stalin,MOA,communist principles that are aim to destory humanity.A system of morality that is based on relative emotional value ,FAURE,is a mere illusion,a thoroughly vulgar conception which have nothing sound in it and nothing true in it.

  14. The PL are fundamental a communist organization clothed in cronyism.
    This means much like the PRC Communist Party in China, they make grand announcements to preoccupy the thoughts of the masses, better values, kindness, hard work, sacrifice and so on.
    This grand announcements do not apply to the cronies in their Party who are getting richer and richer everyday. The announcements do not apply to the clicks in their organizations or their leaders, only to the fools, foolish enough to listen to them.
    Can PL speak about moral values?
    Can PL speak about family values?
    No they cannot.

  15. He cannot even difine the communist vlaues that he supposed to believe in----which are often conveye through fables,stories,propaganda.lies......

    The other problem in FAURE words on Values--He started by himslef-----In other words what FAURE is trying to tell us is"He value(communist values should be or Seychellois should accept them as their values too".WellFAURE i guess Seychellois demonstrates the values they beleive in the first election when the elected MANCHAM8Democratic aprty)and not SPPF (Communist party).Their values are that of freedom,Human rights,Equality,etc....and i would say that the values we must follow are that of the majority of Seychelles namely Freedom,liberty as they did expressed when they freely elected Mancham from the deomocratic party to lead then.

  16. What Pp preaches is pure communism.And stooges like ram WOULD always walk the crooked road with the crooks,beleiving the crooked toads.

    Communsists will always bombard you will lies,bla-blah,absurditiy and would make you beleive they know everything better than toher including experts.Look At FAURE under-educated ,he cannot tell us what is degree,you see him preaching about Economy with having no knowledge about economic which explain why he and Michel bankrupted us,he talk about democracy beleiving communsim is democracy,he talk about sovereignty but sell out our patrimony to foreigners while our young soldiers atz sea fight pirates to rpotect our sovereignty etc.etc..etc Communists are liar and criminals as history show from Stalin,Lenin,PolPOT,KIm,Castro,Mugabe,and pp.

    Seychellois have long discovered their lies but those donkey in oblivion have convinced themselves that Seychellois listen to their pieces of trash becuase they are psychopath.

  17. PP every time their open their mouths big than their ass saying crimes have drop,pp may be crimes like stealing tourists,breaking house have drop by 1%,but crime of the first degree are increasing two women murder and a foreigner in just a coupel of 3 months on this small island.

    Than mean under this regime things are getting worst day by day in our society,its must be fix and social voilence are increases,but for those problems to be fix we have to get pp out.

  18. Crimes has dropped according to PP fabricated statistic ,but over-crowed numbers of inmate and its increase at Montagne Posse prison betrays PP figures.When crimes have been reduce PP,how come the number of inmate increase at Montagen Posse^?When When Drug Barons like Houreau is not jailed and set free by his friend Govinden and their crimes not recorded as crimes then it might be one of the means that allow PP to get the articial drop in crimes delict.

    When party members crimes are considered legitimate,lawful like LUCAS then crimes turn into legal activities therefore ,for PP is not recorded as a crime.etc..etc..etc...

    In a wors crimes have decrease not becuase Chief-of .Police QARTER ha a strategy in palce that is effective but simply becuase many criminals often Pp party members,follows,collaborators involve in gross crimes are not sentneced for the crooked acts.And since most criminals are Pp party members and are not jailed then you automatically get a fictive decrease in crimes rate,which is a farce,and another joke from PP thugs.

  19. Pp talks about social voilence--But what the prposed solution to deal with this old flao Pp?Well .one possibility is passing laws that deters especailly men from abusing their wives rights.That means,for instance,any husbands who slap,beat thier wife should be charge and face justice,and the punishment should ne harshed.Govt.can start by fianancial sanctions ,if voilence is repeated jailed sentence should be considered.

    Secondly,behavoir starts at home as child ,then continues at school and so on.Govt should have education progrramme for school children of such issue,and parents should take the parental responsibility to educate their children about values,equality,rights etc....there must be a change in behavoir,mentality that can only be achieved by having responsible parents,education etc....

    Men in Seychelles must stop is bad habit ,which invlvoe beleiving that men have rights above women.And the jealousy which is a result of the misunderstanding that both men and women are equal is a cause of voilent.A bit like Arab ,Seychellois men got the feeling that they posses more rights than women.For instance,in Seychelles ,when a woamn deicied to leave it husband,the husband become voilent,becuase he thinks the wife has an oblgation to stay with him regardless what,and should take in the abuse as if they are a semi-animal.under human etc...

    On the contary though ,when Husbands get involve in adultry for instance,they donot even care about the fact that the same way that a man feels when the wife left him is the same fell to for the woman when the husband shit her.We are equal under the law and as Huamn being ,so men should stop this archaic mentality of veleiving that they can do what they want,and women should abid by a patriacal dictation.

    Mentality must change, and to do that education at early stage ,school,other educative programme of Tv tc.. must be conducted and that serious not for show.

    Maybe by starting with education of universal rights,etc....

  20. You right Johnny,should we want to get problems fix we should dealt with firstly the cuases of these problems.and the root of this môuntain of problem is PP thugtocracy teemed with thieves,criminals etc....

    With PP is the main source of those problems ,in order to fix those problem we must have in place effective instituions,independent bodies,and proffesional that aibide by the rules without concession..Then we laso have to have real solutions to tackle those problems,and as to SFP it has Solutions of which many is just a question of abding by Constituions,rules of law,indenedency of governemnt bodies,and the willingness to tackle them.Mayn problems for instance dealing with money Laundering can be fixed fast just ba having the geniune and conpetet instituions and ensuring that it delivers,other problems would take a while becuase the daamge done by PP is so immense that wahtever good solutions a new good will bring mit would simply need time to fix,So, in a owrd,many problem due to its originality and could and would be solved rapidly and many on the long terms.But the good thing is that there are solutions to fix Pp's mess.

  21. Carrot,sticks and broken windows approaches do not decrease crimes.Attacking the causes of crimes aonly can help,The problem of most crimes committed in Seychelles today is due to unemployement,Hard drug addicts,poverty and other societal problems.Should those problem be tackled the decrease in crimes would remaind a myth.

    Keepping Pp esocbars,criminals away from justice,jail,and protected by their Chief Govinden cannot and will not decrease crimes.
    Nor would manipualted figures given to us by Pp without any means for the popualtion to scrutinize PP figures being thrown to us.

  22. Chinese celelbration must be done in CHina ,the same for Indain Youth Celebration must be done in india,not Seychelles ,we are niether Chinese nor Indian.

    The only acceptable foreign celebration that Seychelois could Celebrate would be the FRENCH CELBRATION and that becuase at least Seychellois share many things in common with theFrench,From our language derived from French,mentality,culture,tradtion and maybe the British becuase for centuries Seychelles was its colony and we donot sahre many things we inherited from the Brit culture,like tea time etc.. not wirth Chinese and little from Indian than Curry nothing more.

    Stop shitting Seychellois partilepep.and start doing what Seychellois want,wish,and not those dictation by ministers who should be the servants not masters of Seychellois.

  23. Main causes of voilence in Seychelles are.

    Hard drug consumption
    -dead-end jobs(unemployment)
    -economic inequality
    -poor housing
    -voilence in media
    -
    -or in a word ,it is due to economic and social problem,not psychological.or boilogical factors though it could be to.

    When you compare crimes today from the last past ten years --it is clear the increase are due to specific social and economic conditions in the country.We have more crimies today than ten years ago though the standard of living was not that better asc today.
