The Editorial this week addresses how the Indian Ocean region is making news for the wrong reasons. It touches the continuing Assumption Island saga and calls for more respect for the Seychellois People by holding a referendum on the military base issue. It also touches the Agalega Island debate and also the Maldives, where the Democratic norm is being challenged by the arrest of the Chief Justice, the Head of the third branch of Government. The Single Air Transport Market initiative for Africa is considered, as well as the rising operational cost for Seychelles Tourism.
