International Jurists Award 2010 awarded to Seychelles Former President Mancham

International Jurists Award 2010 awarded to Seychelles Former President Mancham ( Seychelles Former President James R. Mancham left Seychelles on Tuesday, December 7 on the way to India where he has been selected to receive the prestigious “International Jurists Award 2010” for his “unique contribution in the field of World Peace.”

The Award will be presented by Hon. M. Hamid Ansari, Vice President of India, at Plenary Hall of Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on December 11, 2010 at 11:00 am. The International Council of Jurists is a body of jurists working towards the promotion of the administration of justice and healthy development of law, suitable for social and economic needs of the people of the world. It has its registered office in Buckingham Gate London SWI.

Earlier recipients of the award include the Chief Justice of England and Wales, Chief Justice of Canada, the Vice President of the International Court of Justice, the Chief Justice of Singapore, and the President of the law society of England and Wales.

The presentation ceremony will mark the opening of an international conference of jurists which will be attended by judges, law ministers, diplomats, parliamentarians, chief executive officers of multinational companies, law teachers, journalists, accountants, artists, and social activists from India and other parts of the world.

Following the International Conference of Jurists in Delhi, the former President will go to Lucknow, India, to attend the 11th Chief Justices of the World Conference where the Dalai Lama will deliver a keynote address.

In a statement issued, former President said he would avail of his participation at the 2 international conferences and other conferences to pro-actively echo the sentiments recently expressed by President James Michel that the international help Seychelles is getting in the fight against piracy “is too little and too slow.”

According to Mr. Mancham, the piracy menace is no mean business. In Seychelles, we have to remain in a state of vigilance and alert with much of our scarce resources having to be diverted to meet the threat. “The maintenance of stability in the Indian Ocean must be the concerns of all nations who are using the Indian Ocean as a shipping lane. There will be no stability in the zone unless there’s stability in Seychelles. This is no time for 'lip service' and 'half-hearted' commitments. This is the time for concrete actions," Mr. Mancham said, adding that so far, as the situation within Seychelles is concerned, there should be all party support for the fight against piracy.
