Martelly Government wants Answers on Judge Jean Serge Joseph's Mysterious Death

The recent and untimely death of Judge Jean Serge Joseph has some officials within the Martelly government disputing the official cause of Joseph's death, a cerebral hemorrhage. Judge Joseph was investigating First Lady Sophia Martelly and son, Oliver, on allegations they had been diverting government funds for their personal use.


In a conflict of interest involving Minister Jean Renel Sanon of the Justice Department, his department has been requested to explore the circumstances prior to Joseph's sudden death. However, Sanon is being regarded as a person of interest among some government officials.

According to sources, Sanon met with Judge Joseph at an attorney's office two days prior to Joseph's hospital death. They intimate Sanon directly or indirectly threatened Joseph. Sanon allegedly said if Joseph didn't close the corruption case against the First Lady and her son, there would be consequences.

Minister Ady Jean Gardy of the Communications Department has ordered not only an Executive committee to investigate, but also the Judiciary, Senate, and Deputy branches to form their own committees. Their job is to detect discrepancies in source reports, if any, and offer corroborating evidence of foul play or not.

President Martelly has also been linked to the corruption case, pursued by Joseph due to Martelly's familial ties.

The first order of business of the commissions should be to ask Sanon to recuse himself from the investigations because of his suspected part in the events two days prior to Judge Jean Serge Joseph's uncertain death.
