The CJP reminds judicial authorities of the country in his statement that "that the best way to deter criminals, killers is to apply the law strictly against the murderers of journalists "and asks the corporation journalists in Haiti, "to make a chain of solidarity to defend the rights of all their colleagues without distinction."
