Seychelles Maritime Law Survey

Lieutenant Commander Bill Dwyer wrote

 From 7-10 February 2011, LCDR Bill Dwyer, U.S. Coast Guard from the U.S. Africa Command Office of Legal Counsel and LCDR Steve Obert, U.S. Navy JAGC, of Naval Forces Africa (NAVAF) Legal Staff, traveled to the Seychelles to conduct a maritime law survey.

Prior to traveling to the Seychelles, a maritime law survey questionnaire was developed and submitted to the government of the Seychelles through the country team. Meetings were held with the members of the Supreme Court, the Chief of Police, the Chief of Defense Forces, the Commanding Officer of the Coast Guard, the Principal Secretary, Minister for Home Affairs, Director General of the Seychelles Maritime Safety Administration (SMSA). The goal was to evaluate host nations law and draft a report as tool for the planners and operators in anticipation of potential U.S.-Seychelles combined operations under the Africa Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership (AMLEP) an Africa Partnership Station (APS) program.
