Haiti - Justice : About forty demonstrators incarcerated in the National Penitentiary
On Friday, members of the Democratic opposition coalition, including several senators, paid a supportive visit to about forty demonstrators arrested and held in pre-trial detention in the National Penitentiary following anti-budget and anti-government demonstrations in the metropolitan area and in several provincial towns the past week.

These demonstrators, whose files are in the hands of the investigating judge, are accused of interferences with public order, violence and destruction of property of others...

On Saturday the demonstration again degenerated into violence and was once again dispersed firmly before its term by the police.

However, Me Michel André, one of the Spokespersons of the opposition coalition, says that the mobilization against the regime in place will not be stopped, despite the difficulties encountered during the last demonstrations. He confirmed that the four-day event is scheduled for: Tuesday 10, Thursday 12, Saturday 14 and Tuesday 17 October 2017, to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse from the presidency in Haiti.

He also called for the immediate and unconditional release of the demonstrators imprisoned in the National Penitentiary, calling them political prisoners.
