Haiti is entering a new judicial year with at least 82% of the prison population in prolonged pre-trial detention and after a year in which repeated strikes by judges, prosecutors, clerks and other sector employees paralyzed its operations for several months.
In his speech for the occasion, the Head of Government invited all actors of the judicial system to tackle the problems that have plagued the country for several years, to lead to the rapid and structured recovery of republican institutions.
Henry is convinced that this must change, so that litigants regain confidence in State institutions "The judiciary faces many difficulties which weaken it and reduce every day, more, its level of confidence in litigants. We have an obligation to do everything to get our democratic institutions back to normal," calling on all the actors involved in the judicial system to do their utmost to return as quickly as possible to normal functioning of democratic institutions.
