CSPJ Appointment, Nehemie Joseph

Nehemie Joseph has been officially installed as a member of the Superior Council of Judicial Power (CSJP). He is the representative of the Assembly of barrister in exercise and the Dean of the Bar of Gonaives. The inauguration was held during a ceremony at the School of Magistrates. It is part of the CSPJ's efforts to improve the judicial system in the country.


Joseph joins eight other members who were also inaugurated as part of the new CSJP panel. The others are Antoine Norgaisse, Anel Alexis Joseph, Max Elibert, Thiers Malette, Jean Alix Civil, Max Elibert, Jean Etienne Mercier, and Dilia Lemaire.

Along with the rest of the panel, Nehemie Joseph was elected by relevant officials. President of the Association of Haitian Magistrate Durin Duret stressed that there were no foreign officials involved in the installation. The development came after several meetings among the members of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security about issues involving the judiciary in the country. The creation of the nine-member panel is believed to help in streamlining the power and authority of the judicial, legislative and executive branches.

The international community welcomed the development, with the United States Embassy and the United Nations congratulating the Haiti government for the new CSPJ. Mariano Fernandez Amunategui, special representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Haiti, believes that the panel is crucial in freeing the country's judicial system. It will also boost the country's rule of law, he said.

Joseph and the other CSJP members are expected to commit themselves to the council's mission and vision for the country.
