Haiti - Justice : Justice no longer exists, for more than 2 weeks
The Citizen Protection Office (OPC) expresses its concerns following the unlimited work stoppage launched by various Magistrate Associations. While taking note of the Magistrates' commitments in their fight linked to the improvement of the judicial system, the OPC remains deeply concerned because of the disastrous consequences of this approach on litigants in general and the prison population in particular, 75% of whom are situation of prolonged preventive detention.

After more than two weeks of general strike which paralyzed the Courts and Tribunals of the 18 jurisdictions of the country, "the Public Service of Justice has become almost non-existent" https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31060-haiti-news-zapping.html

Faced with this observation, it is urgent for the stakeholders to find a peaceful and negotiated solution. To this end, the OPC encourages the President of the Republic and the Superior Council of the Judicial Power (CSPJ) as legal and constitutional representative of the Judicial Power to initiate discussions with a view to resolving this crisis in the interest of all litigants.

Wednesday, in this context, Lucmane Delile, the Minister of Justice in the presence of Michel Patrick Boivert Minister of Economy and Finance, met with Jean Wilner Morin President of the National Association of Haitian Magistrates (ANAMAH), Michel Alexis President of the Association of Haitian Judges of Peace, Wando Saint-Villier, President of the Professional Association of Magistrates (APM) and AIkenson Edumé President of the National Network of Haitian Magistrates (RENAMAH) as well as the representatives of 4 union associations who presented their claims.

However, due to the absence of representatives of the CSPJ who had not been invited and of magistrates who did not have a mandate, it was agreed to postpone this meeting "sine die" this time with the presence of representatives of the CSPJ. Nevertheless, Ministers Delile and Boivert have openly expressed their interest in finding a way out of this crisis which is completely paralyzing the justice system.
