Haiti - Justice : The «Blackout» during the swearing-in, an act of sabotage
According to Edmond Mulet, the Representative of the Secretary General of the UN in Haiti [until May 31 2011], the power cut during the swearing in of the 56th President of Haiti, Michel Martelly is a premeditated act. He reveals that the electric cables supplying the building where the ceremony took place were cut with a machete ! "It is not possible, It is an anti-democratic act", Mr. Mulet said. Speaking without ambiguity, of an attempt of "destabilization", he invited the judicial authorities to punish, without delay, the perpetrators of this act.

Yesterday Monday, Me Auguste Harrycidas, the Commissioner of the Government of the prosecution of Port-au-Prince, visited the Parliament to gather information about this incident "We opened an investigation to establish all the light around this issue," he told journalists, after a visit of the places, affirming to have met various political personalities about this case.

In a note, Saurel Jacinthe, President of the House of Deputies, said that the Bureau of the chamber had no responsibility in this incident, stating that the building where took place the swearing-in was built and supplied with electricity by a firm of engineers-architects, under the direct and exclusive control of the Organizing Committee of the ceremony. He asks the justice to act quickly in this investigation.

For his part, Fritz Jean-Louis, Coordinator of the inauguration, said that for now, the committee had no comment to make "If there is an investigation on the issue, that it leads..."
