Haiti - Justice : Me Lionel Constant Bourgoin, new government commissioner
Yesterday Monday, Me Lionel Bourgoin Constant became the new government commissioner of the Civil Court of Port-au-Prince. The swearing in ceremony took place yesterday morning. Me Bourgoin replaces to this position the former commissioner Felix Léger. Recall that in 2011 Haiti had three government commissioner, Me Harrycidas Auguste, Me Sonel Jean-François and Me Félix Léger.

"...frankly I am both very happy and at the same time also very careful [...] Now I return to the prosecutor because I feel in me a need to act for justice of my country, because there is a necessity, it's not just me that will act, everyone acts, the Government in its general policy statement that prioritises public safety and justice is a gear, is a part of the chain of a public security policy well understood [...] in a comprehensive policy, the action of the prosecutor must be integrated so that we can have the repression, married the prevention with the repression and the neutralization of criminal.

So I expect here that with all my substitutes, collaborators and administrative staff, we can resume the internal organization of the prosecution like Gassant had left it to Me Manès [...]" declared Me Bourgoin.
