Haiti - Justice : Judicial procedure against the Senators Lambert and Benoît
Recall that the Senator Lambert, after his resignation Thursday, March 8, of the Senate Commission of Inquiry on nationality, whose he was co-President with the Senator Jean Charles Moïse and a few hours before the press conference of President Martelly, had publicly announced publicly that important revelations would be made, and that could cause in the coming hours, unrest in the country, speaking of a "Kouri". These statements, followed by those of Senator Steven Benoît, launching on the a radio station of the capital, a public appeal for caution and asking them to stay at home, have been the source of confusion, of anxiety disorder and panic among the population who quickly deserted the streets of the capital. Several victims of various incidents following these alarmist statements, filed complaints against the two Senators.

Michel Brunache, the Minister of Justice and Public Security, confirmed having received a request from Jean Renel Sénatus, the Government Commissioner asking him to send a letter to the President of the Senate in order to obtain the availability for justice of enators Joseph Lambert (Southeast) and Steven Benoît (West) for having disturbed the public order. The Government Commissioner in his request, retains the charges of blackmail, incitement to violence and disturbances to public order against the two elected.

The Minister declared "...I have indeed received a letter in this regard, of Government Commissioner of the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince, where he speaks of complaints he received. He speaks of the events of Thursday, March 8 and he asks the authorization of be able to question those who would be responsible for all this [...] I intend to proceed with the request of the Government Commissioner, which means forward it to the President of the Senate [...]

...if the Government Commissioner receives complaints, he is obliged to respond to these complaints. Now there is a procedure, the only instruction that I have to give him as Minister, is to follow strictly what the law says and in these cases. I can not obstruct justice. It is primarily an approach of victims, the prosecution has responded and the Ministry of Justice is obliged to respond. [...] There are people who estimate have been victims and it is their right to complain..."
