The African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights provides for the establishment of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights. The 18th OAU Summit of Heads of State and Government meeting in Nairobi, Kenya on 26th June 1981 adopted the African Charter. The African Charter came into force on 21st October 1986 upon ratification by the requisite number of Member States. The first members of the African Commission were elected at the 23rd OAU Assembly of Heads of State and Government in July 1987 and the inaugural session of the African Commission took place in November 1987. Under the African Charter, the African Commission is mandated to promote the rights and freedoms set out in the African Charter and ensure their protection across the continent, monitor and advise on the implementation of the African Charter and interpret its provisions. The Promotional function of the African Commission mandates Members of the African Commission to undertake promotional missions to States Party to the African Charter. Promotional missions are an important aspect of the African Commission’s activities as they enable it to establish communication and links with Member States. Seychelles is party to the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights, which it ratified on 13th April 1992. "In their visit, discussion and final Report 2004 Sechelles Seychelles government and the AG Office stated that it had no Refugees, internal or external - we have some 10, 000 - 15, 0000 Seychellois living in exile - their human rights under the African Charter for Human rights and People Rights."
