Haiti: President Faces Dismissal over Murder Case

Michell MartellyPORT AU PRINCE - The Haitian Senate have decided to open an investigation into the president and prime minister for being implicated in the murder of a judge. Yesterday, they approved a commission which recommends the dismissal of the president.

President Michael Martelly and two members of parliament are facing dismissal from the government as they are allegedly involved in the murder of a judge who was investigating an accusation against the wife and a child of the president.

The judge, Jean Serge Joseph, died suspiciously on the 13th July of a cerebral hemorrhage. The admitting hospital stated that Joseph died of a “cerebrovascular accident” or stroke but Joseph’s family and several high profile politicians believe Joseph was poisoned.

The president’s wife, Sophia Saint-Remy, and her son Olivier, were being accused of “usurpation of functions and conspiracy” in their manipulation of public funds.
