They do not see me with a good eye" speaking unequivocally of a network of criminals who operate within the judicial system of Jacmel.
Monday, February 21, 2011, or 7 days after his statements, rumors circulated through the streets of the city announcing the death of the Judge Maxon Samedi. According to information gathered from relatives of the judge, at the court, Jean Maxon Samedi was assaulted "by an invisible hand" while he was going to take his shower. This information has created some panic at the court. According to the latest information, the judge would be with a hougan in a critical condition.
