PNH Agent Pierre Paul Maceus indicted for the Death of student Damael D'Haiti

A case involving the death of a State University of Haiti student has moved forward with the indictment of National Penitentiary Administration agent Pierre Paul Maceus. Government Commissioner Me Lucmane Delile headed the indictment, saying that there is enough evidence showing Maceus' involvement with the death of 4th year student Damael D'Haiti during an event conducted by the Faculty of Law and Economics. Maceus is a young officer who was also a student at the university. According to previous reports, Pierre Paul Maceus was at the event too and had an encounter with the victim. Delile, however, said that the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police has yet to recover the weapon used to kill D'Haiti.


Amid the case, several students took to the streets and held a demonstration to demand justice for Damael D'Haiti. On Tuesday, they participated in an existing protest of teachers against low salary and taxes in Port-au-Prince. Reports said that barricades were put up at the scene, while people vandalized many vehicles. This led to violence between the police and protesters. The demonstrators reportedly threw stones at the police, who countered with tear gas. The police also fired rubber bullets to disperse the protesters.

This physical interaction between the police and the students did not sit well with the Ministry of Education. The ministry condemned the violence, as well as aired their concern over the students, parents and teachers affected by the incident. It also vowed to take legal measures to address the issue and hold people responsible for the violence.
