Prisons are there for notorious criminals and bandits that prevent citizens sleep well in the country [...] to the kidnappers I would say that the ball ended [...] justice should strike terror in the camp of bandits [...]"

Regarding the fight against preventive detention, the new Commissioner will have a lot of work to do, n fact, on 8572 people are currently imprisoned in Haiti, 6170 are in custody. In Port-au-Prince (40% of the prison population of Haiti), he rate of preventive detention is 90.48% !
