Haiti - Case Bélizaire : 2nd postponement in 3 days and two new commissions !
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.

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.
