CAA launches first website

The Constitutional Appointments Authority (CAA) has launched its first website as of November 1, 2017
The website - www.caaseychelles.com - is intended as a forum to create awareness of the CAA and to receive feedback about its services.
Key features of the site include a cleaner and more attractive design, simple and functional and a more engaging user experience.
The CAA is a Constitutional body established under Articles 139 and 140 of the Constitution of the Republic of Seychelles whose mandate is to recommend senior judicial officers and other constitutional appointees for appointment by the President as prescribed in the Constitution or an Act and regulate their conduct in respect of removal of office.

Judge Durai Karunakaran’s case

Judge Durai Karunakaran’s case

27-June-2018
Constitutional Court dismisses Judge Karunakaran’s case against CAA



The Constitutional Court has dismissed the case brought forward by suspended Judge Durai Karunakaran against the Constitutional Appointment Authority.

Judge Karunakaran had filed a case against the Constitutional Appointment Authority (CAA), arguing that it did not get a chance to be heard after he was suspended on October 10, 2016 by former President James Michel on the advice of CAA and that he had been denied a fair trial by the tribunal appointed by the CAA.

Giving their reasons to dismiss Judge Karunakaran’s request, the three judges who heard the case yesterday – Justice Gustave Dodin, Melchior Vidot and Laura Pillay – said the CAA had no legal obligation to allow Judge Karunakaran to be heard.

Judge Karunakaran was suspended as a result of a CAA decision to refer him to a tribunal of inquiry to investigate his professional conduct.

According to Article 134 of the Seychelles Constitution, a justice of appeal or judge may be removed from office only for inability to perform the functions of the office, whether arising from infirmity of body or mind, or from any other cause and for misbehaviour.

Still according to the article, the suspension may on the advice of the CAA be revoked at any time by the president of Seychelles.

The CAA is the body that recommends the appointment of constitutionals posts including that of judges to the president.
