His order targets in addition to the two people already incarcerated since April 2023 (Edwin Tonton, the former Director of the CAS and Pierre Richard Vales, Chief Accountant) and the current Minister of Social Affairs.

Furthermore, the judge requests the arrest of Bernardin Dominique for complicity in embezzlement of public property, forgery and use of forgery, Yvrose Alcide for influence peddling, Frantz Iderice, the former Director of the CAS accused of the issuance of 14,000 checks in the name of phantom beneficiaries…
