Haiti - FLASH : Journalist Guyler C. Delva complains for defamation
Text of the complaint :
"Me Ocnam Damé Daméus
Near the Court of First Instance of P-au-P
In its Offices
I presents you my compliments and I have the advantage of explaining to you that a citizen responding to the name of Faraday Pierre-Louis launched an intensive campaign of lies against my person, with the obvious purpose of tarnishing my reputation.
Mr. Pierre-Louis appeared at the Radio Caraïbes studio on Friday, July 14 to make a statement on the program 'Matin Caraïbes', of which I am co-host.
During the program, there was a disagreement between the hosts, which remains an internal issue to the show and to the radio, However, followed an incident whose I will spare you the details yet, waiting to be able to expose them at a hearing which I hope will take place in a very short time.
Since July 14, Mr. Faranday Pierre-Louis has not ceased to declare that I slapped him. An utterly misleading statement, which is an attack on my reputation. I never slapped him and did not give him any blow.
On the basis of all of the foregoing, Mr. Commissioner of the Government, I intend to file a complaint and, as a matter of fact, I have filed a formal complaint against Mr. Faranday Pierre-Louis so that he is prosecuted and punished according to the laws in force, for offense of defamation against my person, and it will be Justice.
Joseph Guyler C. Delva
