Haiti - Security : Edouard Paultre, reassured by the statements of President Martelly
Edouard Paultre, head of the Haitian Council of Non State Actors (CONHANE) estimates that the statements made by the President, on November 18, are reassuring, because it is indeed necessary to have a consensus in the country on the new national security force.

"...In reality we were very concerned when the President Martelly had announced it would remobilize the army, there were people who were training before its declaration of November 18.

So we think that this statement is correct, we wish indeed that there is a large consensus on the issue. We believe that today, the President Martelly gave an opportunity to the country to dialogue about the need to remobilize the army [...] we believe that the army has its place in Haiti [...] it is necessary that there is a force that can ensure the security of the country but also the intelligence..."
