Haiti - Justice : The Government Commissioner defends the rights of Gaillot Dorsinvil
Me Thierry Mayard-Paul, the Minister of Interior, of Territorial Collectivities and National Defense asked Friday morning, to Jean Marc Maurice Flambert, Director General of the National Office of Civil Aviation to prevent an American Airlines plane to take off for Florida, in which there was Gaillot Dorsinvil, the former President of the Provisional Electoral Council.

Me Osner Févry the lawyer of Gaillot Dorsinvil explains that his client would leave the country and that he was forced to abandon the aircraft and return to the airport. "...The Minister of Interior called Mr. Flambert to ask him to block the American Airlines plane that was leaving the doors closed, the engine running and which was about to take off, in which my client was sat in the seat 4F. The latter was forced to leave the plane, returning to the runway, get back to the airport, his suitcase was returned to him and the plane finally took off very late.

[...] If I had to qualify what happened at the airport, I'd say it's a scandal! [...] Kadhafi and François Duvalier did, but Obama and Sarkozy can not do so, the Minister of Interior on simple phone call has done it this morning in Haiti by boarding a plane.

[...] Fortunately, there is a prosecutor in the city, the Government Commissioner, who has shown character, serenity. He was law-abiding and has informed Mr. Gaillot Dorsinvil that he could go about freely about their business. Despite the intervention of Me Thierry Mayard-Paul who asked to stop the plane, and possibly even stop Gaillot Dorsinvil, the Government Commissioner has kept his composure and replied to those who were pressures on him, there is an order of justice, there is an order of justice, there is a justice decision dated August 22, 2011, who canceled all warrants, orders, and others, including bans departures against advisers Ribel Pierre, Gaillot Dorsinvil and Léonel Raphaël, saying there was no question of bringing Mr. Dorsinvil to the prosecution, nor that he arrests Mr. Dorsinvil and there was no question, to ban him to leave the country.

Embarrassed, the immigration officials are nevertheless confiscated the passport of my client and in the coming hours, in the coming days we will have to take over the passport and Mr. Gaillot Dorsinvil will be able to freely go about their business in Haiti, or abroad.

I describe of unfortunate what happened, while congratulating the Government Commissioner to have enforced the law, despite the pressures. I say that there has been pressure for M. Gaillot Dorsinvil be arrested, he was not arrested. I do not know if this pressure came from the Interior Minister, but the order to stop the plane, the order to prevent my client to leave the country, came from Me Thierry Mayard-Paul, the Minister of Interior..."
