Plan to terminate the life of Jean Monard Metellus, Fact or fiction

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.

So far, the declaration of the government did not impress many in the opposition. However, I can tell you that it has been a gold mine for the Haitian press. Many believe that the press note issued by Minister of Justice Sanon was an attempt to quiet Jean Monard Metellus, as well as other journalists, from being critical of the administration.

"The communication from the Justice Ministry is very very suspect," stated Pierre Esperance who is the Director General of the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH)

Former First Lady Mirlande Manigat calls the recent press note by Minister of Justice Jean Renel Sanon "frankly ridiculous", adding the freedom of the press is "absolutely" threatened in Haiti.

Do you believe the government or the opposition in this case?
