Haiti - Justice : Clifford Brandt escaped !
This Sunday morning, a commando composed of 10-15 people heavily armed, according to various testimonies (number unconfirmed by police) led an operation against the new civil prison of Croix-des-Bouquets, funded by Canada and considered as a highly secure locationand meeting the most stringent prison standards.

During this attack, where many shot were heard according to various witnesses, an unknown number of prisoners would have escaped, including Clifford Brandt, information confirmed by the National Police of Haiti (PNH). The Deputy of Croix-des-Bouquets, Tholbert Alexis informed of the escape of Clifford Brandt described the situation as "grave".

One or more agents of the National Penitentiary Administration (APENA) would have been injured or killed during the commando attack, without other details, except that an ambulance was seen entering and leaving the prison...

The Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe, also Chief of the Superior Council of the National Police (CSPN) was seen going to the Police Station of Croix-des-Bouquets. The authorities of the CSPN should in principle give a press conference in the coming hours. According to our sources police reinforcements had arrived this afternoon and were deployed in search of the escapees in nearby neighborhoods.

Dominican security would have been advised of the escape and the surveillance strengthened at the border between the two countries.

Recall for our readers that as part of the kidnapping, October 16, 2012 two young Coralie [23] and Nicolas Moscoso [24] on the road of Bourdon [members of a family of Haitian entrepreneur], a major police operation involving the cell against kidnapping and homicide was initiated and led to the arrest in the offices of the company Mazda [Delmas 2] of Clifford Brandt, member of a rich bourgeois family well known in Haiti. Following his interrogation, Clifford Brandt confessed and led police force, on the scene [Pernier] where was sequestered Coralie and Nicolas, which was released.

Since November 2012, 15 accused were detained in the case Clifford Brandt, 10 in the National Penitentiary, a woman at the Prison for Women of Petion-ville and Clifford Brandt and 3 other alleged accomplices, were transferred from the prison of Carrefour to the new prison of Croix-des-Bouquets.

Note that the investigation allowed to revealed the importance of the network of criminals Clifford Brandt, considered as the most powerful criminal network in Haiti if not the Caribbean, according to comments at the time of Reginald Delva, the Secretary of State for Public Security.

Although the situation remains unclear in the absence of official statements one can only wonder about the security of this prison, given as maximum and wonder if the commando has not benefited from inside complicity.
