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.
