Court order for TRNUC not to investigate disappearance of 2 SPDF soldiers
The judicial review proceedings before the Supreme Court of Seychelles in the matter of Seychelles People’s Defence Forces v The Truth, Reconciliation and National Unity Commission continued this week.
The Supreme Court has now set Friday 10th July 2020 at 10:00 hrs for the oral arguments by the lawyers on the preliminary objections raised by the Commission.
The Commission consented Court order for TRNUC not to investigate disappearance of 2 SPDF soldiers to an Order of the Court preventing the Commission from making further decisions, findings or to further investigate the disappearance of Private Alberto Antat and Private Rodney Payet during the course of the judicial review proceedings. This Order has the same effect as an interim injunction. If any of the Commissioners or any staff of the Commission breaches this Order, SPDF can seek to enforce the Order by way of contempt of Court proceedings or other avenue after receiving legal advice.
Further, the Attorney-at-Law representing SPDF gave an undertaking to the Court to enter into dis-cussions with the Commission about the speedy return of several physical and only-copy of files be-longing to SPDF that the Commission is still refusing to return to SPDF.
SPDF says it hopes that the matter relating to the files can be quickly settled since it needs these files for urgent legal and administrative purposes.
