Haitian Police, the armed wing of the government, said Michel Martelly

President Michel Martelly is probably nostalgic and homesick for referring to Haiti national Police as the armed wing of the government during a speech at the graduation ceremony of the 24th promotion of the National Police of Haiti (PNH) last Friday. As usual, the opposition was quick to take issue with that and denounce the comment. Many people believe that this is another example where Michel Martelly has been trying to politicize the Police force in Haiti.


The Haitian President also took the opportunity to praised the Police for their contribution in the overall improvement in security in the country, compared to the situation in previous years.
Is this for real? Do you think Haiti National Police is politicized? Has Martelly been able to use the force to oppress others on political basis?

Eske nou panse ke Michel Martelly pa kwè reelman nan Demokraci e ke li ta pi rinmin gouverne tankou Divalye? Kombyen moun ki panse ke li gin yon san makout Lakay li?

Eske nou panse ke si Martelly te trouve opportuny, li tape agy tankou oubye pi mal ke Duvalier?
