Haiti - FLASH : The Minister of Justice dismissed
Thursday July 9 Lucmane Délile, the Minister of Justice and Public Security, returning from abroad, vigorously condemned the demonstration earlier this week in the streets of Port-au-Prince, of bandits heavily armed with the new coalition of gangs "G9 and allies".

"We consider it extremely serious that armed bandits are gaining the streets of the capital to terrorize peaceful citizens. Haiti is not a banana republic where offenders can do whatever they want. I instruct the PNH to track down these criminals, because it is revolting and unacceptable [...]" declared Minister Délile.

A few hours later the Minister of Justice was removed from his post and immediately replaced by Rockefeller Vincent, former Director of the Unit for the Fight against Corruption as indicated by the presidential decree published in the Official Journal Le Moniteur #114 dated July 9.

Is this a sanction from the Prime Minister concerning the presence of detainees on the Presidency's grace list who did not meet the criteria for release https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31187-haiti-justice-minisitre-delille-freezes-the-release-of-the-pardoned-prisoners-and-takes-sanctions.html or the end of an internal conflict while the situation has become more and more tense in recent weeks between the Minister of Justice, which is increasingly difficult to control, the Prime Minister and the Presidency.
