Haiti - Justice : New revelation about the escape of Clifford Brandt
Thursday Godson Orélus, the Director General of the National Police of Haiti (PNH), accompanied by the Chief Inspector, Ralph Stanley Jean-Brice, responded to questions from the Senate Commission "Justice and security" in particular on the escape of 329 prisoners from the Prison of Croix-des-Bouquet on August 10 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-11795-haiti-security-329-escapees-the-government-explains-video.html

Godson Orélus revealed during his hearing that the spectacular escape of 329 prisoners was only to create a diversion and allow dangerous Head Gang, Clifford Brandt to escape. Recall that Clifford Brandt was captured by the Dominican army 48 hours after his escape https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-11804-haiti-security-it-s-the-dominican-army-that-captured-clifford-brandt.html

According Godson Orélus and Inspector Jean-Brice, 5 policemen placed in segregation at first, are now subject to criminal prosecution and administrative accused of aiding and abetting escape https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-11920-haiti-security-prison-break-in-croix-des-bouquets-with-the-complicity-of-prison-guards.html noting that two of them have confessed to have been motivated by money and have participated in the liberation of prisoners in order to allow Clifford Brandt to escape. These officers were dismissed and sent before the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police (DCPJ).

Other police officers, who participated in the escape are currently subject to sanctions. However we still not known who paid these officers in cash and various gifts (Motorcycles, laptop etc...)

Note that since August 10 only 80 prisoners were captured and 249 are still on the run.

In addition, Sandra Honoré, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Haiti, informed Thursday that the Minustah had opened an investigation into the cause of the escape due to the fact that the Minustah participated in the training of prison officials, denying that this incident put into question the effectiveness of the support of the UN mission in the National Penitentiary Administration (APENA)
