Systematic Grant of Privileges to Sheik Khalifa Undermine The IMF Marco Economic Program in Seychelles (Part II)Vienna Convention Does Not Apply
I have clearly established in past articles, that the granting of diplomatic immunity to Sheik Khalifa, and offering him tax free entry of goods status into Seychelles, under the Vienna Convention is illegal and Secretary Barry Faure’s statement that it was normal practice, is absolutely absurd, and nothing but a cover up misrepresentation and likely even a fraudulent act upon the population of Seychelles.
Sugar Daddy Tries The Groove Thing
With that established, what laws of Seychelles has James Michel used to stroke Sheik Khalifa, and offer him sweet daddy deals?
Customs Management Decree, Section 126.1: The Minister may waive , reduce or rebate any duty payable on any goods, where considered in the national interest to do so.
This law, would have to be implemented by Minister Danny Faure, to provide tax free status to Sheik Khalifa on the goods he imported to build his villas. It is estimated that $280 Million has gone uncollected. But Danny Faures’, brother, Barry Faure, Secretary of State, said that the Vienna Convention had been applied to Sheik Khalifa. Since the Vienna Convention cannot be applied to Sheik Khalifa because he is a principal to diplomats and no embassy exist in Seychelles, only Danny Faure could approve such exemptions for the tribal king.
Even if Danny Faure, as Minister of Finance had implemented this section, he would have to establish that the goods for Sheik Khalifa are in fact, being brought to Seychelles in the national interest. PP would have a difficult time establishing that Sheik Khalifa’s over bearing presence in Seychelles is in the national interest. If this cannot be done, Sheik Khalifa would still be liable for the $280 Million in taxes unpaid. This tidy sum could cut our external commercial debt by more than half, and set Seychelles on the course of real economic recovery.
If anything, Sheik Khalifa’s La Misere residents has not been in the national interest, but contrary to the national interest, as the incident and chaos brewing at La Misere, has shown us and the World, clearly and without doubt.
Since this project has begun, 1200 residents men, women, children have fallen sick due to contaminated water supplies from sewage contamination of Sheik Khalifa’s construction workers working under the name ASCON, an unregistered construction company in Seychelles. Clearly, there is no national interest to give the man tax free status, on everything he has brought into Seychelles, which now exceeds 400 containers of goods. About Four (4) months of container traffic in Seychelles, these days. The exemptions have been granted from the clouds in the air, because James Michel has developed a close friend ship with Sheik Khalifa. Unconfirmed reports are coming in that suggest Sheik Khalifa, gifted a villa in the UAE to James Michel. If anyone in the UAE can confirm this report, please send information to firstname.lastname@example.org to shed light on this material matter of public interest.
Under the Trades Tax Act, Section 4:1, 4.2 ...the Minister may by regulation, exempt goods and services from the payment of trades tax.
Clearly, no regulation has been put in place to this day. Hence, the Trades Tax Act, would not allow the Minister of Finance Mr. Danny Faure to grant Sheik Khalifa, tax free status on the importation of Sheik Khalifa’s goods into Seychelles.
Over 400 Containers Tax Free Are a Systematic Undermining of National Revenue Base
Each container entering Seychelles, and taxes not paid for Sheik Khalifa is a single fraudulent component of a larger systematic program in place, by the government of the day, to undermine the receivables of the Government of Seychelles and to shift the burden of Sheik Khalifa’s unpaid tax bill upon the People of Seychelles.
This systematic and fraudulent undermining of our receivables balance sheet, has a detrimental impact on the bottom line of the Seychelles undergoing marco economic reform. Roads break, water pipes burst, electricity is used, hospital services overloaded with Sheik Khalifa’s workers on so on.
Furthermore, by the PP Government of Seychelles, placing 4% economic activity around Sheik Khalifa’s projects for residences and hotels, and marinas, we are registering growth rates that are not based on our main industries, and input spread over different players, to reduce risk of fallout.
In fact, the Government of Seychelles, has placed its economic viability in the hands of a single man’s whims. This is highly risky for the future development of the Republic of Seychelles, as an independent, viable, state.
Why? Because Seychelles is a proud Christian based society, that will be very unhappy having Sheik Khalifa, a tribal king from UAE running our proud country from his Blackberry. That’s why... if you don’t like that, we pay taxes, so there is no reason why you should not, after all you use the water and the roads for your Seventeen (17) tax free BMW X5 series.
Pay as you Go Sheik, not as you wish! Or else..... we will not rest!
Sesel Pou Seselwa, PP, bunch of sell outs!
May God Bless All Freedom Loving Seychellois!
