In a press note, the Presidency condemns the acts of vandalism and of profanation perpetrated on the night of Saturday, August 6, 2011 at the Cathedral of Cap-Haitien.

It is recalled that the tolerance and the freedom of conscience are the basic foundations of a secular state and Republicans. Any attempt to undermine these principles is a serious threat against the rule of law and deserves to be treated rigorously.
