Haiti - Justice : The Minister Fortunate blames the Government Commissioner Dameus
Letter from the Minister of Justice :
"Me Ocnam Clame Dameus
Near the Procuratorate of Port-au-Prince
Referring to the instructions that were given at the end of the last year to the Heads of the various Parquet of the Republic as part of the clemency measure in favor of some inmates, the Ministry I lead comes back to your particular jurisdiction, given the poor handling of files.
It is not without difficulty that, for the majority of the cases that were brought to his attention, it is about people who had finished serving their sanction and that, by the fault of your administration were still kept in prison.
This situation, oh so revolting, tends to defy one of the priorities of the Government in criminal matters, which is to reduce to the lowest, until its eradication, the rate of prolonged preventive detention.
The Ministry, in its mission to ensure the strict application of the criminal policy of the government team and the distribution of a sound and impartial justice, believes it is appropriate to give the warning by duly sanctioning your harmful and at least blameworthy behavior.
Sure that other similar acts will not happen again in the future, the Minister of Justice and Public Security asks you to receive, Mr. Government Commissioner, his greetings.
Heidi Fortuné, Mag
