Haiti - FLASH : Investigating Judge Mathieu Chanlatte withdraws from the file on the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse
Friday August 13, 2021, after having accepted this week to investigate the case of the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34444-haiti-justice-judge-mathieu-chanlatte-will-investigate-the-case-of-the-assassination-of-the-president-official.html, Judge Mathieu Chanlatte announces that he deports (withdraws) from the file.

Although in his deportation letter he mentions "reasons of personal convenience" it seems that in addition to the lack of logistical means to carry out his training, the lack of security for him and his family, are the main reasons that led him to make this decision.

Me Bernard Saint-Vil, the Dean of the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince, will therefore have to find a new judge who agrees to investigate the case of the assassination of the Head of State.

Letter of deportation from Me Mathieu Chanlatte :

"We, Me Mathieu Chanlatte, Judge of Instruction at the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince.

Considering the indictment to inform the Public Prosecutor's Office of this Competence;

Considering the ordinance of designation of the Dean, Me Bernard Saint-Vil;

Whereas by order of the Dean, the file of the named Christian Emmanuel Sanon, James Solages, Joseph Vincent, Gilbert Dragon and others, charged with serious suspicions of murder, attempted murder, act of terrorism, night theft with armed hands and criminal association to the detriment of the President of the Republic Mr. Jovenel Moïse and his wife Marie Etienne Martine Moïse, has been distributed in our criminal investigation office;

Whereas the examining magistrate may withdraw from knowledge of the case at any stage of the proceedings;

For these reasons, we withdraw from the said file for reasons of personal convenience and order its return to the Dean of this tribunal for the legal consequences.

Given by us, Me Mathieu Chanlatte, Examining Magistrate at the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince, on Friday, August 13, two thousand and twenty-one (August 13, 2021).

Me Mathieu Chanlatte, Investigating Judge
