In a letter dated January 23, 2020, signed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Edmond Bocchit and the Prime Minister a.i. Jean Michel Lapin Chancellor Bocchit writes to Mrs. Judith Exavier, Consul General of Haiti in Santiago:

"Madam, I inform you that it has been decided to terminate your duties as post chief at the Consulate of Haiti in Santiago.

This decision is effective immediately.

While thanking you for your services, I renew to you the assurance of my distinguished consideration."

A second letter with similar terms was sent this time to Kerby Alcante Desormeaux, 2nd Secretary at the Embassy of Haiti in the Dominican Republic.

In both cases no mention of the reasons for the dismissal of these two officials of Haitian diplomacy, appears in these correspondences...

Recall that Judith Exavier arrested on December 7 at the Dominicano-Haitian border of Jimaní-Malpasse in a vehicle registered in the name of José Bernabé Quintero, one of the alleged members of the money laundering network of César Emilio Peralta Adamez nicknamed the "Dominican Pablo Escobar" https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-29458-haiti-flash-towards-a-new-scandal-in-haitian-diplomacy.html

For his part Kerby Alcante Desormeaux (born in Haiti), 2nd Secretary at the Embassy of Haiti in Santo-Domningo also known as Kerby Alcantara Desormeaux (Dominican entrepreneur), is accused of forgery and use of forgery, to carry out commercial activities as a Dominican citizen and at the same time to be a Haitian diplomat in possession of two diplomatic passports... Let us recall that he was arrested twice and then released https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-29793-haiti-flash-arrest-of-the-2nd-secretary-of-the-embassy-of-haiti-in-dr.html . Note that it is for having released Alcante the first time that Jean Roudy Aly the Minister of Justice sent a correspondence this week to Me Souvenir Jenty, Substitute for the Government Commissioner to the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince , announcing to him "[…] it was decided to put you on availability without pay, pending the outcome of the investigation into the facts of which you are accused."
