Haiti - Elections : The Saga of the Senate Committee of Inquiry continues
Senator Youri Latortue who presides the Senate Committee of Inquiry said yesterday Monday "...we are supposed to receive all the clerks and bailiffs of the Electoral Council, but they must come with their documents [...] so that we can review decisions, how they were taken, [...] we know there are minutes, the deliberate, that there are the decision... [...] since there are many documents, the Vice-President of the CEP told us that he would put them at our disposal, instead of moving them [...] we'll go today at the Electoral Council to look at all these documents [...] we hope this will help us see more clearly, especially as there are many declarations of litigation lawyers that are very pertinent and we hope to verify their declarations.
