I am honoured to have been appointed Chief Justice by President James Michel on the recommendation of the CAA. I am grateful for the trust and confidence that the President has placed in me. It is an office which carries onerous duties and great responsibility.
I acknowledge the learned men who have preceded me in this office. The expectations of the bench, bar and the Seychellois people in general are high. I welcome the huge challenge and will do my best to live up to it.
