Message of the Commissioners

Pursuant to Section 8 of the Commission oflnquiry Act, we are pleased to submit an interim report arising from the inquiry into the disposal of immovable assets of COSPROH. The reason for the interim report is mainly due to the nature of the findings and recommendations. In our view, more work needs to be done to clear certain doubts and draw final conclusions in view that the work of the Commission was severely constrained by the passage of time, unavailability of original records and reliable information as described in detail in this report.

The Commission remains firmly committed to examine further evidence and examine any person who could assist its work by providing relevant and reliable evidence on the findings and shortcomings discussed in this report. There are certain areas where the government of Seychelles has to take further steps based on our recommendations. The Commission is also conscious of the fact that Government will require some time to implement the recommendations made in this report. Once these steps are taken, and if further evidence is gathered through various processes, the Commission will be in a position to examine the same and produce a final report.

Where the Commission has expressed doubts on certain land issues and financial affairs of COSPROH, which is mainly due to the lack of evidence, the concerned authorities and persons should be forthcoming with relevant records, information and clarifications on a voluntary basis. lt is our considered view that the Commission has done an enormous amount of work within a short period despite severe constraints and against all odds. However, a little more work will give full fruition to the objective of the Commission.
