Me Walter Wesser Voltaire, the 5th judge appointed in May 2022 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-36801-haiti-news-zapping.html , to investigate the case of the assassination of Jovenel Moïse on July 7, 2021 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34162-haiti-flash-president-jovenel-moise-assassinated-by-mercenaries-official-updated-7am-+-video.html in his order sent to Me Bernard Saint-Vil, Dean of the Court of First Instance (TPI) of Port-au-Prince and to Me Jacques Lafontant Commissioner of the Government of Port-au-Prince indicates that he cannot respect the three-month deadline to investigate the case stating that "[...] certain formalities have not yet been completed [...]"

In his order, Judge Walter Wesser Voltaire did not request the extension of his mandate.
