Haiti - Justice : Case Clifford Brandt-Morosco, clarifications of the PNH
Wednesday, following the arrest of Clifford Brandt in the case of the abduction of Coralie and Nicolas Moscoso, Frantz Lerebours, the spokesman of the National Police of Haiti wished to clarify certain aspects of this case and refute some false rumors circulating "[...] We have not dismantled a gang, we arrested a person, that we presume to be the mastermind of a gang. It is important for us, from all the information we have collected to make this clarification, this does not exclude the possibility that we are facing a criminal network.

For the moment, we can not beso affirmative, we effectively arrested, Clifford Brandt, I mean the police, especially the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police (DCPJ) through the cell against kidnapping, as everyone knows, for the kidnapping of Coralie [23] and Nicolas Moscoso [24] [...]

These two people were kidnapped on October 16 at 8:30 am on the road of Bourdon and all steps of the investigation led to Mr. Brandt and this is what makes the police arrested him the day before yesterday [Monday] to his company [MAZDA] Delmas 2 [...] he spoke of abduction. Kidnapping is an American word which meant in its early stages child abduction. A kidnapping [today] it's any persons that is abducted, in the everyday language [...] There is a kidnapping of two people who were released from the arrest of Mr. Brandt, this is what we must remember, it is himself who has cooperated with police and that led to the release of Coralie and Nicolas Moscoso. As I said, the whole course of the investigation led to him and the police arrested him, it's as simple as that [...]

the issue of 265 police [involved] and the information circulating on the Internet, that there are families that are targeted, I can tell you that it is a pure intoxication, there is no truth in that.

If a person who is at this level practice of kidnappings, it is likely that there are policemen with him, people who know the ropes, which allows him to easily bypass the police, it is in the realm of possibility, but for now, in the dimension that the investigation evolves I am not allowed to give names [...] to save the investigation [preserve integrity], must we keep a certain discretion on certain information [...] it is likely that there are police officers who are arrested in connection with the case. If it is found that there are police officers involved, there will be no quarter.

[...] Today we're on the big organized crime, here we are on the hard, of people that can not be treated in the same way that we treats petty thieves in the street, and in the manner it is organized, it can do much more harm to society, that a little tramp in the city that steals wallet..."

In addition, following to this arrest, Hervé Denis, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Haiti (CCIH), stressed that the arrest of Clifford Brandt [who was not a member of CCIH] "is an individual actthat has no impact on the CCIH and wished that the police and the judiciary act with celerity in this case, recalling that "everyone is innocent until the court sentenced him for an offense." The President of the CCIH, deplores that of false informations on the internet suggests that this type of action is a common practice in Haiti, in the business world.

His side Pierre Espérance, Executive Director of the National Network for the Defence of Human Rights (RNDDH) shows himself "very pessimistic concerning the outcome of the case Clifford Brandt," given the impunity and corruption of the judicial system in Haiti.
