Haiti - FLASH : Minister Edouard, speaks on the case Guy Philippe
Friday, March 17, 2017, during the presentation to the media of his balance sheet at the head of the Ministry of Justice, Me Camille Junior Edouard, following the resolution of the Senators in favor of Guy Philippe https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-20382-haiti-flash-the-senate-votes-a-resolution-in-favor-of-guy-philippe.html , wished justify himself in explaining that, as Minister of Justice, he had proceeded to a transfer measure of the defendant Guy Philippe to the American justice, under the principle of continuity of the State, not speaking at any time of extradition.

n addition, he wished to point out that since 2002 until his arrival at the Ministry, "81 people were arrested and handed over to the American courts" https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19907-haiti-news-zapping-politics.html [Still omitting the use of the term extradited], stressing that "Guy Philippe, who is on the front page of the news, is only the 82nd case to be dealt with by the Ministry of Justice [...]"

"We must stop this hypocrisy," the Minister insisted, calling the society to question the interests and foundations of reactions recorded in connection with this particular issue. Noting that Senator Philippe at the time of his arrest, "was not covered by the principle of immunity" specifying that "this protection granted by law to parliamentarians, begins on the day of their taking of the oath."

Enfin, il a rappelé que les crimes tels le trafic de drogue et d'êtres humains sont des infractions internationales, indépendamment du lieu ou du territoire où elles sont commises.
