Letter from the Prime Minister :
"Port-au-Prince, February 21, 2019
Jean Roudy Aly
Minister of Justice and Public Security (MJSP)
In his offices-.
It is with great amazement that I learned that you allowed the relaxation followed by the transfer to the United States of seven (7) of the eight (8) individuals apprehended by the National Police of Haiti (PNH) on Sunday February 17, 2019.
Given that the weapons found in the possession of these individuals, under the conditions that we know, are seriously prejudicial to national security, among others, in my capacity as Chief of the Superior Council of the National Police (CSPN), I urge me to send a detailed report of all the steps and all the administrative documents with legal references that would have authorized you to make such a decision.
In anticipation of a follow-up to this request, please receive, Sir, my patriotic greetings.
Prime Minister "
