In a short ceremony held at Palais de Justice, on Wednesday 15th January, 2020, Hon. Justice Francis MacGregor, President of the Court of Appeal, handed over years of researched work on the legislative history of Seychelles, to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Hon. Nicholas Prea.
Hon. Justice MacGregor’s work covers the history of the legislature of Seychelles in the form of recorded minutes since 1889 to 1956. And it is important to note that from 1987 to 1993, Hon. Justice MacGregor was the Chairman of the People’s Assembly of Seychelles and he served as the Speaker of the National Assembly of Seychelles from 1993 to 2007. The knowledge and experience in his tenure in Office has prompted Hon. Justice MacGregor to compile thorough accounts of Sittings and debates through the years into documented ledgers.
The National Assembly Library archives will now be enriched with this collection that will be made accessible to Members and staff of the Parliament for research work.
Following the handover, Hon. Justice MacGregor had a brief tete a tete with Speaker Prea, whereby they shared their different experiences while in office.
