Haiti - Security : Installation of the new DG of the PNH and advice of Gédéon
Lapin pointed out to the new commander of the National Police, that he was taking charge of the police institution in a difficult period and face major challenges, one of which is to ensure the safety of the population and bring tranquility in the streets.
Normil Rameau, after a minute of silence in memory of the police officers who died on duty, victim of insecurity and thanks of use, assured that he will be up to the task and not disappoint the Head of State while being open to the suggestions of the senators on which its ratification depends.
He announced, among other things, the resumption of the certification process within the institution, promised to fight against crime, to strengthen the capacities of the PNH and to ensure that the police institution is neither polarized nor politicized.
In his speech, Michel Ange Gédéon, the outgoing Director General at the end of his term, whose professionalism was congratulated by Prime Minister Lapin, addressing his successor declared "[...] I warn you, the task will not be not easy. It will sometimes be painful, complicated and dangerous. Sometimes you will have to make the effort to forget your pride to defend the PNH, to defend your country. Know that the real bandits to be feared are not those known to all, but those who circulate in suits and white shirts rolling large cylinders.
In difficult times, you will find yourself alone in the face of senior State officials for the most part without height, without hand, fugitive and dishonest, favoring malicious gossip, unkind gossip, and low punches from stupid and stupid amateurs. They are only able to facilitate short films worthy of second-class directors, instead of posing the real problems with height and surpassing oneself.
Haiti is the land of paradoxes ! Keep calm and your weight when arrogant people who should be in jail think they can tell you anything because of lack of education. You defend a permanent Republican institution; against all odds, keep calm and above all keep your starting azimuth to bring the institution to port.
Fly higher like this great bird with powerful claws to look from your height these grotesque and burlesque scenes where we discuss seriously with secrets of Punchinello more than one pretends to want to pierce the mystery. Scenes that could inspire Graham Green to write Volume II of his famous book Comedians." before talking to the police officers "Tighten the ranks around your new boss [...] Stay united, cultivate apoliticalism within the institution and you will thwart any attempt division and implosion. Call those who are in violation as many times as they break the law, even if they are released after, do your job. One day, we will understand that you were right. The defeats of the law are only of very short duration. History will prove us right [...] Police offciers stay professional, stay united, beware of politics and good luck to the new Director General of the PNH."
