Haiti - Case Bélizaire : 2nd postponement in 3 days and two new commissions !
After a stormy session of more than 10 hours, whose 6 devoted to the hearing of members of the Supreme Council of the National Police (CSPN) in the case Bélizaire, the Senate, at the cost of deep divisions with political consequences which may affect in the long-term its credibility, decided to create two new commissions and postpone to November 15, the interpellation of Josué Pierre-Louis, Minister of Justice and Michel Brunache, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, although present in the senate Saturday, they have not been heard.

This is the second time in 3 days, that the interpellation of the two members of the Government is postponed after the adjournment of November 3. Former Senate President, Senator Kély Bastien, a member of the G16 (majority), told that many senators that had signed the act of interpellation, have reversed their initial decision.

Regardless of the judicial inquiry in progress on the Deputy Bélizaire, which is convened on November 8, by Judge Bernard Saint-Vil to face charges of forgery, use of false, criminal association and escape, the case Bélizaire sees the proliferation of commissions... After the Commission of Inquiry established by the Minister of Justice about the circumstances of the interpellation of Deputy, of the independent Presidential Commission on this case, the Senate agreed, late in the evening of Saturday, to create, following to a proposal of Andrys Riché, two new commissions and the postponement of the interpellation session.

Before this reversal, the Senators Moïse Jean-Charles, Fritz Carlos Lebon, Nènèl Cassy and Jean-Baptiste have left the the session, unhappy with these proposals, while they came unequivocally make a vote of censure against the allegedly responsible of the Government in the case Bélizaire.

For his part, Steven Benoît, who also intends to obtain the dismissal of authorities involved, did not follow the protesters, anticipating the results of the investigation which should, according to him, demonstrate "the involvement of at least six state officials in the arrest of Deputy Bélizaire [...] The President Martelly leads to the score 2-0 against the Senate and will continue to score even more goals," lamented the Senator, who claims to have been misled [?]

The first Commission, composed of five members (the Senators: John Joël Joseph, Jean William Jeanty, Andrys Riché, Dieuseul Deras Simon and François Anick Joseph) is responsible for identifying those responsible and try to determine the responsibilities in the arrest of Deputy Bélizaire. The Commission will present its report to the Assembly on November 15.

The second Commission, composed of three members (the Senators: Wencesclass Lambert, Jocelerme Privert et Steven Benoît) will conduct a review of the statement of reasons of the interpellation of the Minister of Justice and Public Security and of Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.

It's Rodolphe Joazile, the President of the Senate, who made the designation of members of both commissions, after a behind closed doors in his request and numerous telephone exchanges with an unnamed...

During the hearing, the four members of the CSPN [the Prime Minister Garry Conille, the Minister of the Interior, Thierry Mayard Paul, the Secretary of State for Public Security, Reginald Delva, and the Director General of National Police Haiti, Mario Andrésol, sometimes seem puzzled, responded vaguely to most questions raised about the circumstances of the event or provided answers that have not convinced many senators. However, at the insistence of several elected officials including Steven Benoît, Mario Andrésol has finally recognized under the pressure that it was the Minister of Justice, who had ordered the police officers, last Thursday, to lead Arnel Bélizaire at the 'Greffe' of the National Penitentiary.
