Haiti - Politic : Ratification of important legislation, failure in the Senate
Tuesday, while the Senate decided to give the benefit of urgency, face the threats of the Financial Action Task Force of the Caribbean (CFATF) on the Haitian financial system https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18457-haiti-flash-the-situation-is-critical-transfers-and-haitian-banking-system-threatened.html , including by ratifying the bill amending the Act of 11 November 2013 sanctioning money laundering and terrorist financing and the bill on the organization and operation of the Central Unit of Financial Information (UCREF) adopted by Council of Ministers August 30 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18482-haiti-politic-two-important-bills-passed-in-urgency.html ; the plenary session of Tuesday, which brought together a fragile quorum of 16 senators, was overturned by Sen. Carl Murat Cantave (Artibonite).

The decision of the Senator of speaking before reversing the quorum by his departure took place after the presentation on the Organic Law of UCREF by the President of the Commission ethics and anti-corruption, which recommended a favorable vote and just before the ratification, article by article of this important legislation, which is part of the measures to prevent Haiti to be financially isolated internationally if these measures are not adopted before November.

In question, Senator Catave known for his intransigence, that does not recognize the power of Jocelerme Privert, evokes a point of law on the constitutional legitimacy of Jocelerme Privert no longer President since June 14 "We can not afford to ridicule by passing a law filed by a usurper president, which will further publish it soon as it is passed by Parliament." He is convinced that his colleagues should not work "on a law subject to their discretion, by someone who is no longer President of the country."

A position that has shocked his colleagues, including his allies, who do not understand this radicalization, while the country is in a serious economic threat and that every day counts...

The session was postponed to this Wednesday...
