THE MEMBERS OF THE CEP PROHIBITED FROM LEAVING THE COUNTRY
Rodolphe Joazile, President of the Senate at the request of the Parliamentary Investigation Commission on the electoral fraud, is in charge to examine among others; the allegations of corruption within the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), has filed a complaint with the Prosecutor Port-au-Prince, to request the prohibition from leaving the territory against the members of the CEP.
This follows a letter sent to the Senate by Sen. Youri Latortue (who leads the Commission], on May 17th; a letter explaining that "because of testimony already gathered and in order to avoid flight abroad of members of the CEP, it would be useful that protective measures be taken against all members of the electoral body."
Mr. Harycidas Auguste, the head of the prosecution, decided to respond positively to this request and has asked the Director-General of the Department of Immigration and Emigration to make arrangements with the service of land borders, air and sea , so that the members of the CEP can not leave the territory.
This prohibition on leaving the territory concerns :
Gaillot Dorsinvil, President of CEP, ;
Jean Thélève Pierre Toussaint, Vice-President of the council
Pierre Louis Opont, Director General
Laurette Croyance, member of the council
Jacques Belzin, member of the council
Ginette Chérubin, member of the council
Ribel Pierre, member of the council
Leonel Raphael, member of the council
Anthénor Guerrier, member of the council
Note that this parliamentary commission of investigation, was created after the President Michel Martelly, demanded, that full light be shed on the allegations of corruption made by the parliamentarians and candidates against the CEP, following the surprising reversal of 15 candidates, at the time of the final results of the second round for the benefit of the ruling party INITE.
