Haiti - Security : 180 degree turn of the position of Minister of Justice on the former FAd'H
Tuesday, Me Michel Pierre Brunache the Minister of Justice and Public Security in a letter to Mario Andrésol, the Director General of Police Nationale d'Haiti (PNH) he asked to "take all appropriate measures to stop these actions that violate the Constitution and laws of the Republic [...] the movement of men in uniform and sometimes armed belonging neither to the Minustay or PNH is absolutely unacceptable. The police must act with the utmost rigor to stop this illegal situation that disturbs public order."

[...] there is no ultimatum the police must prepare consequently but there is no ultimatum"

However, this openness to dialogue does not seem to have been heard on the side of former military since Me Thiery Mayard-Paul, the Minister of Interior and local authorities, at the head of a delegation who traveled Friday to Cap Haitien, in order to meet individuals who claim to be part of the former FAd'H and which currently occupying the premises of the Ministry of Agriculture, is returned to the capital, without being able to carry out its mission, the ex-soldiers who refused to meet with the Minister, continue to maintain their position namely, the remobilization of FAd'H and the payment of 18 years arrears of pension...
