Haiti - Security : Former military intend to defend the bases they occupy...
The Senator Francisco Delacruz [Central Plateau] reports in his turn, that former soldiers with their weapons have also restored their base to Cerca-la-source...
While recognizing that these demobilized soldiers, are in their full right to claim the remobilization of the army, the Senator Youri Latortue urges these soldiers who are currently in bases or training camps in Carrefour to return home and to give the weapons they have in their possession. Otherwise, "the State will take the necessary action and restore order." The Senator Latortue reminds them that Haiti needs a modern army to protect its borders and to support its development, but that "this should not and can not be done, in disorder or illegality."
On the side of former military, the former Sergeant David Dormé, Spokesperson of the Coalition of Demobilized Soldiers (CONAMID), recalls "...e are a constitutional institution, a legal force, as well as the National Police of Haiti..." stressing that this is a coordinated movement, but that "...our movement of recovery of our former bases is not dictated. There is no one behind [...] but our patience is limited, we can not wait forever..." adding that demobilized soldiers are determined to protect their bases [if one attempts to dislodge them] We're not afraid and we will not succumb to pressure."
Historian Georges Michel, Member of the State Commission on "the organization of the military component of the public force" that works on the project of establishment of the new Haitian security force in support to the PNH, informs that the army will not be reconstructed from the base, but from the summit, describing of illegal any attempts to occupy the former bases of FAd'H. He warns these former military that he authorities will not tolerate this mess.According to him, the current movement is doomed to fail and will go nowhere.
