Haiti - FLASH : Extradition of Guy Philippe is illegal according to Mirlande Manigat
Friday at a conference at the State University of Haiti (UEH) on "The 1997 Extradition Treaty between Haiti and the United States with regard to the 1987 Constitution", Mrs. Mirlande Manigat who spoke at the conference as a constitutionalist, front a student audience, explained her point of view, taking as an example the recent arrest followed by the extradition of the elected Senator of the Grand'Anse Guy Phlippe on January 5 http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19721-haiti-flash-senator-guy-philippe-extradited-to-the-usa.html

Mrs Manigat, after having rejected the agreement of 27 October 1997, which she described as irregular, in particular because of a question of signatures, on which the Brigade for the Fight Against Narcotic Drugs (BLTS) relayed to arrest, recalled that Guy Philippe, as a Haitian citizen, should, like any other Haitian citizen, have been protected by the State (Article 41 The Constitution "No person of Haitian nationality cannot be deported or forced to leave the national territory for any reason whatsoever [...]"

On the other hand, she indicated that before the arrest of the Senator a warrant of arrest should have been issued against Guy Philippe, in accordance with Article 24.2 of the amended Constitution, what in this case was ignored by the authorities concerned http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-20036-haiti-flash-trial-of-guy-philippe-in-the-united-states.html

In addition, she pointed out that in an extradition proceeding the Minister of Justice and the prosecutor's office had to be fully involved parties, the first was absent and the second was not even informed of the arrest.

For Mrs. Manigat, the intervention of foreign forces on the soil of Haiti ["Drug Enforcement Administration" (DEA)] is an insult to the sovereignty of Haiti.
