Haiti - Politic : The Deputy Jacob Latortue condemns police brutality
While Michel-Ange Gédéon, the Director General of the National Police of Haiti (PNH) congratulated the police offciers for their mastery and professionalism, https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26881-haiti-demonstrations-message-from-the-director-general-of-the-pnh.html , the Gonaïves Deputy, Jacob Latortue (AAA), seems to have a very different reading of police behavior.

In a note dated February 8, 2019 "The Deputy Jacob LATORTUE (AAA) strongly condemns the acts of brutality perpetrated by agents of the PNH against the citizens of the city of independence who raise themselves legitimately against misery, the dearness of life by chanting hostile words against the President of the Republic.

He deplores these acts of brutality that occurred on the day of February 8, 2019, which caused several deaths and more than a dozen wounded by bullets https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26885-haiti-flash-2nd-day-of-violent-demonstrations-at-least-3-dead-and-many-injured.html . He warns the police against any political instrumentalisation.

He presents his sympathies to the victims and their families and takes the opportunity to ask the Government Commissioner of the jurisdiction of Gonaïves to put public action in motion against the perpetrators of these acts that revolt the popular conscience and to defer them in front of the jurisdiction of the Criminal Court to be judged in accordance with the provisions of laws governing the matter. The restoration of peace in the city is at this price !"
