Haiti - Insecurity : Weapons of war in circulation in Haiti ?
On October 6th the candidate Jacques Edouard Alexis was revealed at the opening of his campaign headquarters, that the power in place was distributing firearms to its partisans with the approach of the elections of November 28th.

The next day, the Ambassador of Haiti in Dominican Republic Fritz Cineas denied in an interview that there is an increase in traffic of illegal weapons via the Dominican Republic explaining has not received information about such smuggling "I am not informed of that [...] I did not receive a report on the circulation of weapons through the border"

Saturday, October 9th, in an interview on a radio of the capital, Senator Edmonde Beauzile, denounced the circulation of illegal weapons in his department, blaming, according to its remarks, candidates of official platform INITE, thus confirming the revelation of Jacques Edouard Alexis. She reported the case of a refugee-bandit, who allegedly received from a candidate of the platform INITE a weapon of war (M-16), weapon then recovered by the candidate and recipient and whose future use is unknown. She also mentions the case of another candidate from the same platform, which reportedly launched his campaign in the presence of about forty armed men who boasted of their brand new weapons. The Senator questioned about the origin of these arms and wondered if they are routed through the Dominican border or whether they arrived by sea or air.

Revelation of Jacques Edouard Alexis, accusation more precise from the Senator, or denial of Fritz Cineas the ambassador, who is right? What knows the police about the circulation of weapons of war ? Is the power involved, as seems to want to tell these candidates ? The ambassador is he sincere ? Still based totally or partially this information does nothing to contribute to easing the social climate and leaves the threat of violence with serious consequences.
