Human Trafficking, Modern-day Slavery And the Arab Sheikhs!


Cape Town - The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) has appointed a curator to take control of the assets of swimwear model Candice-Jean van der Merwe, including bank accounts which contain portions of a $15 million (about R188 million) gift she claimed to have received from an Arab admirer she met at a Seychelles resort for the uber-wealthy.
As a result of the court’s order, Van der Merwe has to provide an account of her assets to the curator, Cloete Murray of Sechaba Trust Business Rescue and Insolvency Practitioners, and divulge how she acquired them.
Murray is the only person authorised to have any dealings with the assets, the court ruled.
Van der Merwe is the daughter of businessman Gary van der Merwe, who is best known for running the Huey Extreme Club which offered joyrides in a Vietnam-era Bell UH-1 chopper.
The South African Revenue Service (Sars), which targeted the model in court, has claimed that her father has dodged the taxman for years. Sars argued that she was being used as a conduit, and that she could not have sustained her luxurious lifestyle with the money she earned.
But Van der Merwe countered that she does not in fact fund her lifestyle.
 
According to her, Lady Luck smiled on her in May 2013 when she received a generous $15.3m gift from an Arab man, identified as Muhamad Muhamad Nazih Rawas, who she met at the private Plantation Club resort on Mahé Island, while working in the Seychelles.
“This type of resort is the playground of the super wealthy where they can relax in total privacy away from the intrusions that normally accompany their lifestyles, such as paparazzi and constant security threats due to their extreme wealth and status. Privacy and more importantly security is paramount to these persons. For this reason only people who have been vetted and security checked are allowed at the resort. It often poses a security risk should it be public knowledge that a high-profile individual is at a specific location.
“It is the norm for lavish parties and events to be held at the resort. Such parties and events will often feature celebrity entertainers or disc jockeys with international acclaim.
“Models from only the trusted agencies are routinely flown in from all over the world to lend a sense of glamour and exclusivity to these events and, by definition, the resort,” she explained in an affidavit.
She said Rawas paid her the money after she saw a property in Fresnaye which she liked, and which was on sale for R110m.

With the help of her father, she bought the property.
Van der Merwe also told the court she got her Audi R8 Spyder and Range Rover Evoque vehicles, valued at more than R2.5m, as gifts after she wrote off her car in an accident.
In addition to these, an iPhone 5 and Z10 Blackberry were sent to her, fully paid for. One had been activated with international roaming.
In February last year, the Western Cape High Court confirmed a provisional preservation order Sars had obtained against the model.


Van der Merwe wanted to appeal the order to the SCA, but did not take the necessary steps within the prescribed time period.
As a result, she applied for condonation.
At the same time, Sars cross-appealed on the basis of the High Court’s failure to appoint a curator.
In a judgment handed down a week ago, the SCA commented that Van der Merwe’s father had a strong presence in her affairs.
“At the very least,” she allowed him to use her bank accounts, “or cannot prevent him from doing so.”
The court found that Van der Merwe and her father’s close relationship, coupled with the “extraordinary wealth” she suddenly acquired, required investigation.
“It thus seems imperative that a curator investigate how and on what basis those funds were effectively placed at the disposal of (her father), and whether and how he has disposed of the funds,” the court found.

  1. JAM this is one of the corruption that Monsieur Affif was talking about.

    In the SPL CONGRESS i notice it was the same amount of people that parti Lepep can get to fill this place. SAME SHIT,SAME PROMISE,MAY I MIGHT SAY SAME LAKARLANG BUT DIFFERENT LI-KEY.

  2. Interestingly, the Big Golan (FAR) was not present at this years congress. Is the big Golan backing Ton Pat ? Do we have 2 Parti Le Pep. One headed by JAM and the other headed by Ton Pat ? FAR is a cunning operator, he can see the writing on the wall. So if you cannot beat Ton Pat, then join him. This is what FAR did in the 70ies. Could not beat JRM so he joined JRM and then we had 5th June 1977. Upon returning, JRM could not do anything to help the situation of ordinary Seselwa. So he became the roving ambassador to SPPF whilst filling up his pockets from taxpayers money. I say if Seselwa are serious to get out of this mess, we should make a unanimous call on Bishop French Chang Him to lead us out of this mess for the next 5 years at least. This is in my humble opinion is the best way forward.....

    1. Bishop French Chang Him will be the ideal candidate and no one, I repeat, no one will beat him at the poll! He will be the right person to bring unity, reconciliation, peace and dignity to Seychelles. Father French could be the right Figure head for Seychelles as Bishop Tutu is for South Africa. Let Father French lead Seychellois out of wilderness and make the country once again a blessed Christian paradise. If someone is brave enough to put this suggestion to the people, the result will surprise the whole nation. Go for it Seychellois, God has given you one last choice and a way out of this mess!

    2. Seychelles should start by appointing Bishop Chang Him to lead the 'Truth and Reconciliation Commission' He would be the right person because his own brother was shot, killed and buried like an animal by the henchmen of Albert Rene and James Michel.
      Secondly, organize a straw poll before the general election, it will surely surprise many, bring a new political mindset and an end to corruption.

  3. Like in Seychelles under pl.....You know when ask Seychellois about Rconciliation ,they say it is needed but do not thing Pl would ever wlakinto this shoes.understandably for they are addicted to power and as all dictators even when theyx about to fall, psychopath......so since Seychellois is agsint Pl and pl refuse to apolgise then Seychellois must have to change the system by mobilizing themselves in 2106 behind Oppostion candidate...then those who refuse to apoligise can face justice and be punished for their crimes...

  7. = Pl says Car hires not taxi--which is right and action taken aginst those who break this law....but this should not belimited to Carhire only-----hotels should not have own busses to transport workers or guests to....it has the same destructing effect as when carhire is used as taxi...... ditto to boatcharters ...many unregistered individuals are operating illegally as boat cahrters when they not ..this must stop Pl......

  8. Did you read Today and Nation dated June 10th. Did you see corruption at work ? It was only last week JAM told us Sesel is free of corruption. Its only a perception. JAM you cannot fool all the people all the time. No pe tat ou delo ?

    We see how a serious Seselwa entrepreneur is facing unnecessary difficulties to operate a successful business. This is the norm for a lot of Seselwa business people. I will ask JAM to pay a visit to Providence Industrial Estate and count for himself how many Chinese and Indian business have been allocated land/warehouses to operate simple businesses that should be carried out by bonafide Seselwa. First of all you sell these Chinese a Seychelles passport. You ask them to make a contribution to JJ Spirit foundation, you allocate them land and they start competing head on against Seselwa businesses. These Chinese are not running sophisticated business, they are just traders in hardware, windows, building materials etc. Whichever way you disguise it, this is corruption in my eyes.

    Now to top it all you ask your minister Benstrong to ensure Mr Houareau is looked after. Your cavalier attitude will not make Seselwa change their minds. You are not doing a favour to Mr Houareau. You have altready delayed his progress by 5 years. On the other hand you have promoted the Chinese businesses on Providence at the expense of Seselwa. We Seselwa do not want the land for free, we do not need any special favours as extended to the Chinese. All Seselwa (including Mr Houareau) are asking for, is a level playing field, irrespective of our political colour, racial background or religious beliefs.

    You now want to show Seselwa that you can magic a property for Swimblue. I hope Mr Houareau will see through your shallow attitude. He deserves to have access to land on Providence or other industrial allocated land, but he should not fall for your shallowness and he should not vote for you.

    Which ever way you manipulate this situation, it re affirms corruption is alive and promoted by non other than JAM.

    To end, I will say don’t worry ‘Seselwa pou tat ou delo’

    A RAZE

  10. I can't believe that there are still a bundle of KOUYON clapping hands while listening to the real traitor that overthrew a legitimate government in 1977. Most of what he was preaching belong to him and Albert. Like voras pouvwar! Who was voras pouvwar....C'est lui meme. ....Most of them attending the circus were still small to remember ...so PL call them pti trezor. 2016 PL will be going down!

  20. At Pl convention..Michel arrived with a convoy of dozens of limousine all teemd with heavily armed bulldogs..When Michel entered the Convention hall, he was accompanied by around a dozens armed men :even inside,in a all pl sttoges convention Michel did not feel secure among his own supporters that armed men must follow all his steps in this building.This show you how afraid this guy is,,,he does not even trust his own supportors ,probably not even his shadow.

    The convention hall was teemd with around hundred persons .mostly public servants ,forced to come in order to keep their jobs .The covnetion was done in a public Building called Maison du peueple ,confiscated by Pl,and it is believed some innocent Seychellois who desapeared in 1977 were secretly buried under the building..We could check this allegation after Pl is ousted.today there are high tech that allow to see deep underground without damaging the building.etc....

    Psychopath Michel called on Pillay to tell the truth.....Well Pillay is telling the truth ,and these truth s are well-known to seychellis and it is Not Michel absurdity which is going to change this known fact.....Are you not corrupt Michel/pl..hacve you not robbed 2,4 billion and palced in swiss bank..we all know that,is that not a truth Michel,,Have you not illegally gifted our birth rights and patrimony to foreigners Michel..Have you allow foreigner to colonize Seychelles economy in order to keep seychelleois hungry and dependent on foreigners and Pl..?Have you not killed innocent Seychellois in 1977 Michel?have you not abuse power Michel?Are you not an idiot Michel?Are you not an arab lover ,because you think you are to inferior donkey?well the truth you going to have more once pl ius ousted in 2016.

  21. Michel at African Union...African Union is a failure,incompetent, and a waste of public money.....African Union has never solve alone a single conflict for instance in Africa..In recent conflicts in Amli,Cnetral Africa ,and as always ,foreigner forces (frnch)must come to do the job for African because the alter are incompetent,tto many genral with lots of stars on their shoulders while hving little military knowledge and high standard military know-how....Look in Nigeria,a little group of thugs, is putting Nigeria,under constant pressure,and nothing ,no solutions from both Nigeria and African Union so ffar.Why they are incompetent,and do thing totaaly differently from modernized countires.......African leaders like Zuma,as well as his predecessor ,,believe Aid illness is not sexual,and you can have sex with a HIV victim....what kind of primitive leaders are these monkeys..Most often Africans are lead by the most educated in their society,something unique around the world..In congo a little under educated donkey named Kabilla.S Africa Zuma..in seychellesMichel,in Migeria,genrals that cannot even speak proper English ,that when making interview on BBC ,CNN,what the are saying 8supposedly in English)must be subtitled ,or written in English in order for the rest of th world to understand,and you know hwat,since they do not have a brain,they donot even feel ashame of how under educated they are.....Africa the onctinent with the most natural resources ,from gold ,diamnet, oil,etc,etc,,etc ,but stil lthe poorerset on earth...why ?it is not because of their colonial past,nor because foreign companies come and take everything ,but because Africa is ruled ba monkeys...under educated monkey who do not understand economy,fiannce.and unlike other nations ,do not have the enterpreurnership mentality and hard work ..all the do is gifted away their natural resources t oforeign firms ....while the former amakes multi billions by robbing and explointing African resources ,African leaders are happy to pocket some millions ,peanut ,and that fair enough for them it seems .because they donot understand economy, they donot have netepreunership mentality but always depending on others to do things for them like ,Michel is selling all our economy to foreigners .

  22. Lousteau-Lalande of the Seychelles Foreign Ministry and Govinden the Attorney General, both fucked up when they said the same-sex marriage took place on British soil. The ceremony took place on the lawn of the private house of Lindsay Skoll. The offices of the British Embassy at the Temooljee's building in Victoria is the Official British Ambassadorial premises, not the other private houses rented by the members of the embassy staff. The Seychelles Government condoned that same-sex wedding ceremony on Seychelles soil which is against the civil laws of the land, against the faith and morality of religions of the region. Shame on the Seychelles Government, time for the people of Seychelles to sack Michel and his cronies before more dishonors are brought to the Presidency and Country.
