Haiti - FLASH : Electoral violence, the town hall of Marigot burnt down
Thursday, following the publication by the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) of partial final results and the posting of decisions of Office of the National Electoral Litigation (BCEN) concerning disputes of candidates for the legislative elections, violent incidents have been reported in several communes of the country, the most serious of them occurred in Marigot (South-East) where the town hall was burned and entirely destroyed on the night from Thursday 29 to Friday 30 December.

The Mayor of the commune René Danneau confirmed "Unidentified individuals set fire to the building [...] There is nothing left" deploring that because of the lack of staff of the Commissariat, although alerted of the events, the police could not intervene effectively to prevent the drama.

In addition, he confirmed that a discotheque was also burnt down and two other houses damaged by fire. Also late at night, the house of the deputy mayor of the commune was attacked and suffered many damage, following stone throwing.

Without being able to identify the perpetrators of these criminal acts, he indicated that he would cooperate fully with the police and the judiciary in the investigation, so that the perpetrators would be identified and punished by law, with the utmost rigor.
