GOVERNMENT COMMISSIONER FELIX LEGER IS OUT
(Defend Haiti) -
PORT-AU-PRINCE - The Government Prosecutor Félix Léger was laid off by the Minister of Justice, Josue Pierre-Louis, according to government sources.
The decision of the Minister of Justice, taken November 7, was approved by the Prime Minister Garry Conille, informs the same source, reported by Alterpresse.
Félix Léger is in the center of the crisis between the three branches of government, since he ordered the arrest of Deputy Arnel Bélizaire (Delmas & Tabarre/Veye-Yo), despite the fact that his immunity was not waived.
According to Leger, the MP was a criminal on the run.
The arrest caused an outcry in Parliament, where some deputies and senators promise to dismiss ministers.
Even the chief of government, Garry Conille, seems to be on an ejection seat. After less than a month as Prime minister, Mr Conille was questioned by the Senate last weekend.
Félix Léger was the replacement of Jean François Sonel. The latter was revoked last September by former Prime Minister Jean Max Bellerive, for convening Paul Antoine Bien Aime, the Interior Minister then in office, for alleged corruption.
