Haiti - Corruption : ULCC handed 70 lawsuits against former mayors and personalities
Wednesday August 4, 2021, Me Hans Jacques Ludwig JOSEPH, Director General of the Anti-Corruption Unit (ULCC), in the presence of Me Rockefeller VINCENT, Minister of Justice and Public Security and Ms. Ana María CALDERÓN BOY, coordinator of the institutional strengthening project in the framework of the fight against corruption in Haiti of the Organization of American States (OAS) officially handed 10 investigation reports finalized by the institution to the Commissioners of the Government of Port-au-Prince and Croix-des-Bouquets as well as 70 requests asking for the prosecution of 7 personalities as well as 63 former mayors of the departments of the West and Nippes for not having carried out either on their entry or on their departure from office their declaration of assets despite formal notices from the Institution.

For the Director JOSEPH, anti-corruption gendarme, this handing-over testifies to the concern for impartiality and transparency of the ULCC, which remains determined to clean up the public administration "We are waiting for court decisions taken in an impartial manner. We will ensure that these cases can undergo a treatment that respects the law and anti-corruption law," explained Me Hans Jacques Ludwig Joseph.

He said he was particularly concerned "in the face of false words from certain multi-role people who improvise themselves as specialists in everything but in real nothing. They are at the same time in one person, political activist, political opponent, supposed defender of human rights, President of an organization for the defense of human rights, activist against corruption and astonishment and paradoxically, lawyer and fierce defender of many people prosecuted for proven acts of corruption. A confusion of questionable roles which reveals an acute and regrettable lack of ethics."

Minister VINCENT, took note of the tabling of these final reports to the various Government Commissioners at the Public Prosecutor's Offices of the Republic declaring "These reports, I am convinced will help the country to see more of the underside of the corruption maps, whose proponents are ready, willing and motivated to kill, assassinate, vilify, torture and sacrifice for the maintenance of great illegally acquired benefits. It is at this crossroads that Justice must stand up to defeat these demons and these enemies of the Nation. The entire country and the people as a whole converge their gaze on Haitian justice. Live up to the dignity surrounding your noble and honorable position," emphasizing "the fight against corruption can in no way be a form of political persecution, on the contrary it is a moral duty to which we are all bound."
