Television Nationale d'Haiti Reporters Fired for Political Views

Television Nationale d'Haiti (TNH) Director General Pradel Henriquez brought suit against three of the station's broadcast journalists on April 8, 2011. Josias Pierre, Jacques Innocent, and Eddy Jackson Alexis were accused of "grave insubordination" towards Henriquez, who also alleged they were allowing political biases to interfere with their reporting.

Reporters without Borders (RWB) have denounced Henrique's action, demanding "their immediate reinstatement". RWB contends Pierre, Innocent, and Alexis were terminated because of their criticism towards then-President-Elect Michel Martelly.

The TNH reporters claim Henriquez ordered them to give presidential candidate Martelly three-quarters of an hour air time to 10 minutes for his opponent, Manigat. If Manigat received 20 minutes of air time, that meant an hour and a half for Martelly.
