Haiti - Politic : President Martelly denies having met Judge Joseph
Tuesday, President Martelly back from Orlando after his participation in the 104th Convention of the NAACP wished to clarify certain issues relating to media allegations that circulate around the death of Judge Jean Serge Joseph, including its participation [and that of Prime Minister] to a supposed meeting last Thursday, with the judge where he would have exerted pressure in the record of the charges against his wife Sophia and his son Olivier Martelly, as part of an action for corruption.

"I've never met the judge [...] I do not think it's me who should prove that I was not at the meeting, but to them to prove that I was there. I was not at the meeting, I do not know where it was made and even if there was one," affirmed the Head of State. Concerning action against his wife and his son, he stated that if one can not prove what is advanced, this folder does not exist, recalling that his family does not manage public funds.

In addition, the Head of State appealed for calm and caution the population of Lestère [where the judge Joseph was born], considering that it was likely to be manipulated "It's autopsy that will reveal the cause of death of the judge," he concluded.

On the other hand, while the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH) press the Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ) to open an investigation into the death of Judge Jean Serge Joseph, Me Max Elibert, a member of CSPJ has confirmed that the CSPJ had convened for Thursday, Me Jean Michel Raymond, and 3 judges who have information to share in this case.

Me Dilia Lemaire, member of CSPJ explained that there were several versions in this case and that the conflicting information available to the CSPJ, are insufficient to shed light on this issue. "The CSPJ is not investigating on the death of the judge, butseeks to ascertain whether judges attended a meeting of another power," he said.

For his part Me Max Elibert stressed that "Our investigation is purely disciplinary [...] we are not a court [...] as everyone the CSPJ is seeking the truth."
