Haiti - Justice : The new Government Commissioner resigns
Me Lionel Bourgoin Constant, the new Commissioner of the Government, in office since December 5, 2011, presented yesterday Saturday, his resignation to the Minister of Justice, Pierre Michel Brunache, following the attempt of Me Thierry Mayard-Paul, the Minister of Interior to prevent Friday, Gaillot Dorsinvil, former President of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) to leave the country and the refusal of the Commissioner to make the arrest of the latter [in the absence of mandate to this effect].
Me Bourgoin considers that the restrictions that the government wants to impose to the members of the CEP violate their freedom and rights, adding "We must get rid of old practices which consist to arrest people for everything"
