President Wavel Ramkalawan, chaired a scheduled meeting of the Cabinet yesterday, Wednesday 2nd August in which a number of policy memoranda were approved.
Cabinet approved the Harvest Strategy Policy and the management standards for Seychelles’ fisheries. The Fisheries Harvest Strategy Policy and Management Standard will underpin objectives to ensure that individual fisheries in the Seychelles are able to be best managed according to their particular biological characteristics and the associated socio-economic objectives. It will provide a framework that guides the development and implementation of harvest strategies for all fisheries in the Seychelles. It also aims to provide standards to enable the Seychelles to meet best practices for implementing harvest strategies in fishery management planning. The Fisheries Department will hold a press conference on the subject.
Cabinet condemned and deplored the baseless suggestion in a local newspaper that Minister Sylvestre Radegonde might be linked to the death of Mr Gerard Hoareau. Cabinet confirmed the request from the Scotland Yard to interview some Seychellois citizens in relation to the death of Mr Gerard Hoareau, but that Minister Radegonde was not one of those citizens. Cabinet considers such baseless innuendo as a personal attack on the integrity of a member of Cabinet. Cabinet reiterated that the Seychelles Authorities will cooperate with Scotland Yard in the said investigation
