Haiti - Guy Philippe : The Senate rejects the request for financial assistance of the elected senator
Tuesday, the Senate rejected the request for financial assistance from the former senator-elect of Grand'Anse Guy Philippe, who was arrested in January 2017 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19720-haiti-flash-arrest-of-senator-guy-philippe.html then extradited to the United States in controversial circumstances https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19721-haiti-flash-senator-guy-philippe-extradited-to-the-usa.html .

Recall that recently Guy Philippe had asked the Senate a sum of $125,000 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-24031-haiti-flash-guy-philippe-seeks-$125-000-in-aid-to-the-senate.html to pay the lawyers' fees and other costs required by his appeal.

Senator Joseph Lambert, Speaker of the Senate, said he could not give a positive answer to this request explaining "the institution can not be linked to an elected representative who has not been sworn. "

At the time of his arrest, the Senator Elect of Grand Anse had his Senator's certificate from the Provisional Electoral Council, but had not had time to oath before the Senate, so he had not yet acquired parliamentary immunity.

However, Senator Lambert emphasized that each Senator in a spirit of solidarity is free to help citizen Philippe who seeks financial means to prove his innocence and out of prison.
