Haiti - Justice : Guy Philippe appeared, the Minister of Justice convened
Last Friday the Senate President, Senator Ronald Larèche, invited on behalf of the Commission Justice, Security and National Defense of the Senate of the Republic, Me Camille Edouard Junior, Minister of Justice and Public Security, to an "urgent Working session" in the Senate Commissions room, the same day.

"This meeting will be held in order you explain on the circumstances, legality and deportation alleged https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19721-haiti-flash-senator-guy-philippe-extradited-to-the-usa.html of the elected Senator of Grand'Anse, in the person of Guy Philippe," says the invitation, adding that it must be accompanied by "the Director of the National Police and the Central Director of the Judicial Police."

However, the Minister of Justice in a correspondence addressed to Ronald Larèche states "[...] regret to inform you that, in view of the late acquaintance with this correspondence, with my participation in the Palais National at a meeting on the continuation of the electoral process and the overall security of the country, I find myself unfortunately unable to respond to this invitation, due to a conflict of agenda.

Accordingly, I should be grateful if you would postpone this important working session to the nearest later date, at your convenience.

However, in relation to the facts mentioned, a detailed report will be sent to you from the first briefings received from the competent services [...]"

On Friday, Guy Philippe, in custody, met his defense attorney, Richard Dansoh, before his first appearance at 2:00 pm in federal court with judge Barry Garber. Dansoh said he could not comment on the case before the hearing.

For her part, Spokesman of the Ministry of Justice Sarah Schall said "The case is under seal", meaning that the confidential information given to the court will remain confidential and will not be made public.
