Haiti - Justice : Accused of corruption, Judge Orélien gives notice to Pierre Espérance to prove his accusations
A correspondence dated January 18, 2022 bearing the signature of Pierre Espérance, Executive Director of the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH) addressed to the Superior Council of the Judicial Police (CSPJ) accuses of corruption the examining magistrate Garry Orélien (whose the mandate was not renewed https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35753-haiti-news-zapping.html ) and who was in charge of the investigation into the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse explains “[…] While the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police (DCPJ) was carrying out its investigation, several arrest warrants were issued by the Public Prosecutor's Office near the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince. As soon as he was appointed as an examining magistrate, Garry Orélien began to contact the persons in question and asked, to each of them, to pay him up to fifty thousand (50,000) US dollars for the cancellation of these arrest warrants. For the lifting of a departure ban issued against a personality whose name was cited for having spoken with one of the individuals indexed in this assassination, two million (2,000,000) Gourdes were paid to the examining magistrate Garry Orélien [...]

[...] On January 3, 2022, Magistrate Garry Orélien ordered the release of four police officers who were imprisoned in connection with the case relating to the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse […] At least one of them paid twenty-five thousand (25,000) United States dollars to the magistrate [...]

[...] As soon as he was appointed as an investigating magistrate, Garry Orélien made contact with people, against whom arrest warrants were issued by the Port-au-Prince prosecution. He asked them, each of them, to pay him up to 50 thousand US dollars for the cancellation of these arrest warrants [...]


Reacting strongly to these accusations, Judge Garry Orélien in a note of clarification published on January 20, 2022 writes :

"Judge Garry Orélien condemns with the greatest rigor the false, defamatory and unworthy allegations made by Mr. Pierre Espérance against him in the context of the case of the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse [...] which statements tend to undermine his integrity, his honor and that of his family when his author tries to make the public believe that the judge would have engaged in acts of corruption within the framework of the treatment of this file.

The investigating judge gives notice to Mr. Pierre Espérance to produce such facts and/or such justifications which may give some basis to such allegations.

Judge Garry Orélien thus warns Mr. Pierre Espérance and all other individuals, and this, subject to the most express reservations of legal proceedings, who for reasons or interests which are personal or maliciously, would have sought, at the through reputed criminal organizations to discredit a professional concerned with transparency, discretion and the integrity of his mission."
