Haiti - Justice : ANAMAH calls on all Magistrates, to observe an unlimited general work stoppage
Consequently, ANAMAH calls on all magistrates to an unlimited general work stoppage.
Letter to the President of the Court of Cassation, Presidents of the Courts of Appeal... :
The National Association of Haitian Magistrates (ANAMAH) [...] has the advantage of formally calling for your solidarity in order to observe a general work stoppage, following the proven contempt displayed by the Executive facing the strike led for more than a week by the Justices of the Peace, to demand better treatment in the light of the very high blow of life in this historically difficult period of the Judiciary.
Each of us watches helplessly the breakdown of the budget recently published by the Executive in defiance of the initial request made by the Superior Council of the Judicial Power (CSPJ) for the satisfaction of certain elements of the notebook of grievances of the Magistrates.
Each of us has this possibility of observing the part of 6 billion Gourdes of the budget allocated to the members of a power which exists only in name while the CSPJ struggles to find financial means valuing the judicial power since it received only 0.3% of the funds allocated to this budget https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30976-haiti-flash-the-government-adopts-a-budget-of-1987-billion-all-the-details.html
Let's renegotiate a united judiciary behind the same objectives."
Letter to the Superior Council of the Judicial Power :
The National Association of Haitian Magistrates (ANAMAH) renews its compliments to you and takes this opportunity to remind you of its various actions in favor of dialogue, in particular the correspondence of May 23 and June 2, 2020 in which it invited the Council to the planning of a corridor of dialogue between the Executive and the Associations of Magistrates in order to avoid the radicalization of positions in the claiming struggle of Magistrates. Unfortunately, the calls of ANAMAH remain to this day without answers of any kind!
By adopting this passive posture, the ANAMAH notes that the Council thus becomes an accomplice of the Executive power in the total asphyxiation of the judiciary, the last budget published https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30976-haiti-flash-the-government-adopts-a-budget-of-1987-billion-all-the-details.html without taking into account the demands of the Magistrates is the absolute example !
This is why, while encouraging the Justices of the Peace to maintain their position, the ANAMAH calls on all the Magistrates, of all the jurisdictions of the Republic to observe an unlimited work stoppage, as of the date of this present.
ANAMAH will however ensure that emergency circuits remain functional for the duration of the stop [...]"
