Haiti - Justice : Arrests of militants contested
Several demonstrators, members of the Platform of Employees Victims of the Public Enterprises (PEVEP), have been arrested Monday on the sidelines of a demonstration, which required the departure of President René Préval, while these people were in the premises of the Office of Independent Lawyers (Bureau des Avocats Indépendants BAI).

Me Mario Joseph, the head of the BAI, threatening to file complaints against the Police Nationale d'Haiti (PNH), whom he accuses to have broke into his office without a warrant in order to arrest several "political militants". He said that he will go to court to inform them of the illegal nature of these arrests.

For his part, Frantz Lerebours, spokesman of the PNH, has categorically denied the accusations according to which these arrests were politically motivated, stating that they have been arrested for acts of vandalism.
