Haiti - Justice : Me Elco Saint Amand has not been revoked...
After having revoked the Commissioner Me Jean Renel Sénatus, the Ministry has indicated that Me Elco Saint Amand is the new Commissioner. 24 hours later, according to the Minister of Justice, Me Elco Saint Amand has "renounces to his position". Some did not hesitate to make a link between the past of Me Saint Armand, in 2001, then substitute commissioner of the government, had been laid off by the Minister of Justice following a drug case... Before these rumors, Me Elco Saint Amand brought some details, at the same time opening the door, to other questions on the hypothesis that he evokes...

"[...] If I can submit my resignation, but I have not been revoked, otherwise I never said that I would stay [and that I accepted this position]."

Regarding rumors suggesting that his departure is related to the case of 2001, Me Elco Saint Amand explained "I've never been involved, I was at the time required by a judge to go search the home of a drug dealer, who is currently in prison in the United States.

If there had been a record of drug against me, why the United States did they give political asylum ? Why they have not canceled my visa ? The case happened in 2001, following the pressure on my wife who was pregnant, after my house was burned, we had to leave urgently the country, these are the circumstances. And you see 2001, 2005, 2012, although the guy [dealer] is in prison, he has a long arm, very long..."

Me Jean-Claude Dabrésil, current substitute to the prosecutor will becomes (if he accepts) the new acting Government Commissioner of Port-au-Prince, in replacement of Me Elco Saint-Amand.
