Haiti - Security : The BAC wants a warrant against Guy Philippe
In the investigation report of the Bureau of Criminal Affairs (BAC) transmitted to the Government Commissioner at the Court of First Instance (TPI) of Les Cayes, the BAC would like that about twenty alleged people involved in this case and whose names are mentioned in the report (including Guy Philippe) are made available to justice.
Me Mario Delcy, one of Guy Philippe's lawyers says the BAC's recommendations do not fit into the framework of the law, noting that it is to the investigating judge to appreciate the work of BAC and to assess the evidence and decide what action to take with respect to the above people. Recalling that judges are bound by law and not by police reports, they can look for information but they are not obliged to apply them, remaining confident that justice will rule in favor of his client.
Camille Junior Edouard, the Minister of Justice, said for his part that the prosecutor should ensure that any person named in the investigation report, are put at the disposal of justice. For him, "the court has a duty to follow up on the recommendations of the BAC. It is an obligation."
In addition to these legal considerations the report of the BAC reveals that the police until now was careful to communicate to know the number and type of weapons the commando grabbed the report mentions that the commandos would have seized 19 12 gauge shotguns, 5 Lynch rifles, 2 M1 rifles, 1 M1 rifles, 1 Galil rifle, two magazines, 5 pistols, various ammunition, communication radios and Nissan 3-01551 service vehicle.
