A 56-year-old Honduran national, Alexandro Caranza, was found hanged at the Montagne Posée prison yesterday at around 7.35am, the police have said.

Mr Caranza was being detained at the prison since June 13, 2017 after he was arrested onboard a Spanish fishing vessel in the Seychelles waters for the offence of possession of controlled drug.

The police have said an investigation is underway to establish the circumstance surrounding his death while waiting for the postmortem result to determine the exact cause of his death.

A man who got lost on a trail on Sunday afternoon was rescued yesterday while the search is still on for another man who has gone missing since Saturday afternoon.

Graham Robb, a 64-year-old male Scottish national employed here with the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA), was rescued yesterday after he got lost on the Anse Forban trail late Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile investigation and search is still on by the police, military, coastguard and marine police for Peter Gonzague Zoe who was reported missing on Saturday afternoon.

In Mr Robb’s case, the incident was reported to the police at around 6.30 on Sunday night after Mr Robb had contacted his landlord and informed her that he had lost his way.

The landlord then alerted the police who mounted a search party until the early hours of yesterday before resuming the search and rescue operation in the morning.

Apart from the police, local and foreign handlers with their dogs, also assisting with the search and rescue operations on land were SCAA personnel, DRDM (Department of Risk and Disaster Management) and Zil Air helicopter, while the coastguard and marine police searched the coastal area of the region.

Mr Robb was located at Lapwent Sid, Grand Police at around 12.30pm yesterday by marine police officers who were involved in the search and rescue operations along the coast of the Takamaka region.

According to reports Mr Robb had waved a red piece of cloth to attract the attention of the search and rescue team.

Zil Air helicopter which has been participating in the operation then airlifted him to safety.

Two buses of the Seychelles Public Transport Corporation (SPTC) were involved in an accident at La Misère yesterday morning. 

One of the buses was on its scheduled 0630hrs trip from Béolière to Victoria whereas the other was transporting post-secondary students to Anse Royale. 

According to a communiqué from the SPTC, there were no standing passengers on either bus at the time of the accident. 

The buses have incurred minor damages.

Suspects plead not guilty

The two persons charged in connection with the death Aitor Valtiera, a crew member of a Spanish fishing vessel, have pleaded not guilty and will now be tried in January 2018.

The accused ‒ a 35-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman – appeared before the Supreme Court yesterday.

The woman has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and the man has been charged with accessory for assisting the suspect after the Spanish national died.

According to police reports, the body of 47-year-old Aitor Valtiera was found at Ile du Port. Police investigation showed that Mr Valtiera died in the presence of the accused woman who had then sought the help of the man who is a driver to leave the body at Ile du Port.

Autopsy result showed that the Spanish Valtiera died of a heart attack and water in the lungs, consistent with the use of illegal substances, the police had said.

The National Drugs Enforcement Agency (NDEA) seized two cannabis plants during the last weeks of June and recently made two arrests for the offence of trafficking in a controlled drug.

In two separate NDEA operations on Friday June 23, a total of 811 cannabis plants -- 800 in the Bougainville forest Anse Royale and 11 in Caryole Estate, Anse Aux Pins -- were uprooted and seized by NDEA agents. No one was arrested in these two operations and investigation into the matter is still ongoing.

On June 29 in the Glacis district, a team of NDEA agents arrested a 38-year-old fisherman for trafficking in a controlled drug and his 40-year-old sister, a custom officer, for conspiracy in this drug case. The man was arrested in possession of approximately 150 grammes of suspected heroin and after searching his sister’s bedroom a sum of R10,100 in different denominations was found.
