SARK seigneur Michael Beaumont has denied holding 114 directorships, details of which were published in the Sark Newsletter.
Yesterday’s reluctance by the seigneur to discuss his rejection of an offer by the Barclay family to purchase the lease of Sark and its feudal title for £2m. is unfortunate.
SEIGNEUR Michael Beaumont was yesterday reluctant to discuss the publication of private letters that revealed Sir David Barclay had offered to buy the island’s feudal lease and his title.
SEIGNEUR Michael Beaumont has rejected a £2m. offer to ‘sell’ Sark to Sir David Barclay.
Disclosures by this newspaper that the Seigneur of Sark is willing to stand down if the Barclay family gain too much influence in that tiny island are an interesting twist in a story that appears to be reaching a climax.
SARK Seigneur Michael Beaumont has said he will resign if Chief Pleas is in a position where it can no longer work democratically.
REFORM of a key position in Sark moved a step closer yesterday after Chief Pleas voted to split the role of the Seneschal.
CHIEF Pleas will meet on 2 July for what, after the appropriate part of the new Reform Law is implemented, will in future be termed the Midsummer Meeting and will become the fourth – after Christmas, Easter and Michaelmas – annual statutory meeting of the legislature.
EUROPEAN human rights laws are ‘plainly not applicable’ to Sark, according to a UK Government lawyer.
SARK’S democratic reforms reflect the will of the majority of residents, according to the island’s seneschal, Reg Guille.
