Senior Presidential Advisor Joseph Lambert is being investigated for death threats against two members of Parliament, Deputies Sorel Jacinthe and Levaillant Louis-Jeune. The death threats occurred while Lambert served as President of the National Assembly. Jacinthe and Louis-Jeune alerted the human rights body, National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (NNDHR), and the agency began an investigation into the allegations.
NNDHR found evidence Lambert did indeed plot to end the lives of Sorel and Louis-Jeune, members of political parties, Espwa and INITE. NNDHR's findings prompted the deputies to file complaints with the Court of First Instance in Port-au-Prince on April 23rd.
A few photographs surfaced on the internet which shows the photo of a man and a young girl in compromised position in a swimming pool. The man in photo looks like former senator and advisor of President of Haiti, Joseph Lambert. Lambert however denied being the person shown in the photograph.
Lambert who was previously the senator of South-East and is a family man said that his detractors have used Photoshop or similar image manipulating software to create fake images and attack him. These attacks come, says Lambert, because he is very strong contender of legislative elections that are coming up.
The ongoing battle between Former Haitian Senator Joseph Lambert and Deputy Levaillant Louis-Jeune
This week, former Senator Joseph Lambert put on his cowboy hat and boots and tok to the streets of Port-au-Prince in search of Deputy Levaillant Louis-Jeune. Unfortunately, the two did not meet
I can only imagine what would have happened in the event of an actual meeting. Are you familiar with old wild west. It could have been some real confrontation between these two.
Throughout the history of Haiti, only a few political parties have had a strong organizational structure. In the 1870s and the 1880s, the Liberal Party and the National Party were the two dominant political parties in Haiti reflecting the social and class division that exists in the country. On one side, you see the Liberals party composed mainly of the wealthier and better-educated mulatto minority in Haiti. On the other hand, the Nationalists Party, made mainly of the lower-and middle-class black majority.
Following the United States occupation (1915-34), the nationalist parties organized around the issue of resistance to foreign occupation. The political parties in Haiti started multiplying during the presidential campaign of 1946. Many candidates were participating, including: Parti Socialiste (PSP), Parti Democrate Unifi (PDU), Mouvement Ouvrier Paysan (MOP) and many more. During the Duvalier reign, most political leaders had been silenced.
