Haiti - Politic : Minister Vincent deplores the «obsessive frenzy of certain magistrates»
In addition, Minister Vincent considers "unworthy and degrading the participation of the Magistrate in the Court of Cassation, lvickel Dabrezil and of an Inspector General of the National Police of Haiti, Marie Louise Gauthier arrested in committing an offense during the coup foiled" https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-32966-haiti-flash-coup-foiled-all-official-details.html
In addition, he deplores the "obsessive frenzy of certain magistrates, under the high manipulation of anti-democratic and putschist forces, to seize political power, by any means, by dishonestly violating the prescriptions of the Constitution and the provisions of the law of November 27, 2007 relating to the Statute of the Magistracy, in particular in its article 5 which stipulates which stipulates "Any political action or demonstration of a partisan nature is prohibited to the judges and to the officers of the Public prosecution."
Finally, the Minister of Justice "takes note of the misguidance of the Magistrate Joseph Mécène Jean Louis who, by committing this illegal and unconstitutional act, bordering on madness, decides to turn my back on his title of magistrate belonging to an apolitical power."
Minister Vincent concluded by urging the Public Prosecutor's Office and the Haitian National Police "to take all necessary coercive measures in order to maintain order and the integrity of republican institutions."
Furthermore, Me René Sylvestre, the President of the Court of Cassation, said he was surprised that certain judges joined the opposition's approach to choose a judge as provisional President to replace the Head of State.
Me Sylvestre promises to continue to respect the constitution and to remain a "worthy and loyal magistrate". He invites his colleagues to distance themselves from politics, he urges them to stay away from politics and partisanship and tries to discourage some of his fellow magistrates who dream of one day becoming the next provisional President.
