Opening Ceremony of the Courts at School of Magistrates

The President of the Republic of Haiti on Monday, October 7th, gave a speech meant to rouse into action the audience of the opening ceremony of the Courts for the 2013 to 2014 judicial year.


Held at the School of Magistrates, the ceremony saw the attendance of Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ) members, Diplomatic Corps representatives, The Minister of Justice and Public Security, Me. Jean Renel Sanon, Council of the Bar of Port-au-Prince members, judges of the Court of Cassation, Basoche personalities and other members of the government.

During his presentation, President Martelly charged the Law and Justice professionals present to follow the mandates of their civic conscience when making those decisions based on acts of law. He reminded all that his administration was committed to creating a rule of law to govern Haiti that would be imperious and irreversible, always doing so with an ear to those who cried out for 'Justice for all'.

He stated that he believed that justice and the democratic process were necessary for the creation of this rule of law, that the process would need a strong sense of justice to serve as its rampart. Also expressed was that the government was working assiduously on the matter of improving the conditions for prisoners, a matter that has spent some months in the mind of the public, with a view to cut down on the long periods of detention before a trial for those awaiting their day in court.
