Haiti - FLASH : Release of a pastor guilty of rape, the Judge suspended
Renan Hedouville, the Protector of the Citizen, congratulates the Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ) for the speed with which it launched an investigation on 23 July 2019, around the circumstances of the suspicious release of Pastor Onold Petit, accused of rape on a minor of 14 years following the decision of Judge Jean Baptiste Louis Jean having sat on the second day of criminal assizes without jury assistance in the Jurisdiction of the Court of First Instance of Jérémie, on July 16th. A staggering decision while all the evidence in this case was indisputable and was ignored by the judge in their entirety.

The Office of the Protection of the Citizen (OPC) was informed by the CSPJ on July 30 that Judge Louis Jean was the subject of a layoff measure. This disciplinary sanction notified to the Magistrate is motivated on the basis of the overwhelming facts revealed in the handling of the criminal file for which he was in charge.
