Martelly removed security for Jean-Bertrand Aristide in violation of Haitian laws

Security for Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the former President of Haiti, was removed as a part of an administrative decision made by Martelly administration. This decision came 48 hours after the appearance of the former president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide in court on May 8. This decision was made despite the fact that former heads of state are entitled to get security. Garry Pierre-Paul Charles, host of Scoop FM Radio, confirmed this news on Friday, May 10.


Garry Pierre-Paul Charles reported that this decision was made by the Martelly administration because Aristide took the role of political arrival by making declarations on Thursday, May 9. The declarations made by the former head of the state included the possibilities of electoral sweep by the political party of Jean-Bertrand Aristide - Fanmi Lavalas but he did not mention the name of Jean Leopold Dominique during his declarations. The Martelly administration removed the security because political arrival is in direct violation of the laws of the Republic of Haiti.

The Martelly regime has received backlash because of this decision to remove the security of the former head of the state. Martelly administration has several plans for the coming days and the decision also highlighted the administration's several million dollars fund that was kept aside for celebrating the completion of 2 years in power on May 14, 2013. Sympathizers of Jean-Bertrand Aristide and Lavalas hold the opinion that mode the former head of the state is persecuted by the current administration; the more will he be loved by the people!
