Jean Renel Sanon
Senator Jean Renel Senatus (alias Zokiki) no longer wants to be associated with Youri Latortue Block in the Senate. He is now asking for a divorce. Our Senator suddenly realized that he did not know what he was getting into when he joined the Youri Latortue Block.
I just want to point out that this was not the case just a few days ago. I guess the environment was different. This was the time when political deals were being made and Senators and Deputies had the opportunity to bargain for positions in the new government that was supposed to be created.

How would you describe the highly publicized interpellation session held in the Haitian Senate yesterday?
A display of stupidity!
If your answer is one of the above, you are probably right. The session of interpellation of Jean Renel Sanon, Minister of Justice, David Bazile, Minister of Interior and Territorial Communities and Pierre Richard Casimir, Minister of Foreign Affairs
We would have been better prepared if we knew in advance that this was only a national forum for the Senators to state their long list of grievances about the executive and that we shouldn't be expecting anything concrete.
There is rumor out there that the interpellation hearing scheduled for Tuesaday, November 5th, may not take place after all. According to "Teledyol", Jean Renel Sanon, the Minister of Justice, David Bazile, the Minister of Interior and Territorial Communities and Pierre Richard Casimir, the Minister of Foreign Affairs will not show up
According to several senators who will be present at interpellation hearing, the above ministers are not up to the tasks assigned to them and should be released from their functions.
Will interpellation take place on November 5th?
Let me put it this way instead: Do you think it's the right time for the Haitian Senate to start a new battle with the executive branch of government in Haiti?
After the affair of Attorney Andre Michel that occupied front page last week in almost all Haitian medias as well as some international medias, the Haitian Senate has decided that they also need some attention for themselves as well.
The Senate voted last week to start the interpellation proceeding for 3 Ministers in the Laurent Lamothe Government. The President of the Lower House, Senator Jean-Baptiste Bien-Aimé, made that announced at a press conference last Friday.
According to Mr. Jean Renel Sanon, Haiti Justice Minister, the government managed to penetrate and prevent a plan to assassinate the well known radio host Jean Monard METELLUS from materialization.
This is what we have according to Mr. Jean Renel Sanon: There was a meeting held last Thursday to finalize the plan of attack in which two bikers were being paid the sum of ten thousand dollars to conduct the act. This is according to the Ministry of Justice. for the sum of ten thousand dollars($10,000).
To me, the first question is whether or not the amount was in Haitian or US currency. If anything, Jean Monard METELLUS should realize that his life is not worth more than $10,000 if any of us would want to believe that this plan was real and not something that was only real in the imagination of the Justice Minister Jean Renel Sanon and the rest of the Martelly government.
During a confidence hearing on 5 November, 2013, the Senator Wencesclass Lambert said, there are enough votes in the Senate to relieve Jean Renel Sanon from his duty as the Haitian Minister of Justice and Public Safety. On the same day, 18 out of 20 Senators signed a letter contemplating an interpellation of three ministers, David Bazile (Minister of Interior and Collective Territories), Pierre Richard Casimir (Minister of Foreign Affairs) and Jean Renel Sanon (Minister of Justice and Public Safety).
Being a Minister of Justice and Public Safety of the country, Sanon exposed the incompetence and callousness of his own justice administration in an murder attempt of popular Journalist and Radio Host, Jean Monard Metellus, of Radio Caraibes. Metellus is a respected fair journalist and in some sense very critical of the Martelly administration.
Judge jean serge joseph recently died of a cerebral hemorrhage two days after attending a meeting regarding the corruption case against First Lady, Sophia Martelly, and son Oliver. Some believe Judge Joseph's death came at the hands of the Martelly-Lamothe administration.
The Ministry of Justice (MOJ), pressured to address Joseph's death, called for Parliament to form a committee to investigate the circumstances of the meeting. The Special Senate
The Committee's report concludes, after taking testimony from first- and second-hand sources, extreme pressure was exerted on Joseph to stop proceedings against Mrs. Martelly and Oliver Martelly. But the MOJ questions the conclusions of the Committee. It says prejudice and irrationality clouded the testimonies, and can't be given much credence.
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.
The report of the Senate Special Committee that was investigating whether or not there was a meeting between Judge Jean Serge Joseph, and the executive branch prior to his death has come out.
The investigation in fact confirmed that President Michel Martelly, Prime Minister Laurent Lamother and the Minister of Justice Jean Renel Sanon indeed met the magistrate Jean-Serge Joseph. According to Senate Special Committee report, the meeting was held on July 11, 2013, at the Chambers of Garry Lissade. It was further revealed that the meeting was facilitated by Mr. Raymond Jean-Michel, the Dean of the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince.
