Haiti - Justice : The OPC asks P.M. Henry to translate «his fine speeches» into concrete actions
The OPC welcomes the efforts of the Central Direction of the Judicial Police (DCPJ) and the Prosecutor's Office of Port-au-Prince in the treatment of this file but recalls that from 1995 to the present day, the Haitian population has never followed a large criminal trial with conviction of the guilty defendants. In more than 20 years no trial for spectacular murder of more than 40 citizens has taken place in the country. The alleged killers identified have never been brought to justice. Some, arrested were released by judges without any form of trial with suspicion of corruption.
The OPC deplores that the judicial system is held hostage by certain sectors which protects dishonest and corrupt judges but persecutes, through bogus human rights NGOs, those who are honest and who want to remain independent, faithful to their mission.
The OPC recalls that the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse must not remain unpunished and recommends to the Prosecutor's Office of Port-au-Prince, particularly to the Government Commissioner not to be intimidated nor to give in to the pressures or maneuvers of individuals of all stripes who want at all costs to sabotage the investigation into the assassination of the President in order to strengthen the phenomenon of impunity in Haiti for ulterior and shameful ends.
Finally, the OPC calls on acting Prime Minister Ariel Henry to translate "his fine speeches" into concrete action by advancing the case of the President's assassination in accordance with criminal procedure.
Concluding "justice must play its role and not let the assassination of President Moïse remain unpunished and restore his image, otherwise we will have to put Haitian justice on trial."
Recall that on Wednesday August 4, 2021, the file on the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse was referred to the Cabinet of instruction https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34402-haiti-flash-the-file-on-the-assassination-of-president-moise-finally-transferred-to-the-investigation-cabinet.html
