CONVOY OF PARLIAMENTARIANS TO MEET DEPUTY BELIZAIRE AT AIRPORT
(Defend Haiti) - By Sonny Lindo
PORT-AU-PRINCE - Deputy Arnel Belizaire (Delmas & Tabarre/Veye-Yo) currently on official work in France will return to Haiti on Thursday, with the threat of arrest in lieu. A delegation of parliamentarians will meet the deputy at the airport to escort him home.
Deputy Belizaire, whose name appears on a list of nine escaped prisoners, is wanted by the police on the demand of justice officials.
In France for over a week, on behalf of the Haitian Parliament, Representative Arnel Belizaire announced on Tuesday on Radio Caraibes in Port-au-Prince that he will be back on Thursday, October 27, on the last flight of Air Caribbean, at 4h50 pm.
Rep. Belizaire, prosecuted by Haitian Justice, said he has no fear of going back to Haiti. The Government Commissioner Félix Léger formally asked the Central Directorate of Judicial Police (DCPJ) to handcuff the Representative despite his legislative immunity.
But a delegation of parliamentarians will be present on the tarmac at Toussaint Louverture airport to welcome their colleague.
The Presidents of the Senate and Chamber of Deputies, Rodolph Joazile (Nord-Est/Alternative) and Sorel Jacinthe (Moron & Chamberland/Inite), respectively, have not lifted the immunity of Belizaire, and Joazile has stated that any warrant for arrest would be "premature".
Mr. Belizaire has become the target of justice since his spat with President Martelly on the nights of October 12 to 14 at the National Palace during an important meeting with the Prime Minister Garry Conille.
Some have already began asking if Belizaire should go into exile to escape President Martelly.
