Haïti-Diplomatie

L’ex-Commissaire du Gouvernement Claudy Gassant « nommé » au Consulat d’Haïti à Santiago (Nord de la République Dominicaine)D’intenses tractations pour lui trouver une plus haute fonction en Haïti n’auraient pas abouti mercredi 20 août 2008,

Radio Kiskeya

L’ex-Commissaire du Gouvernement près le Tribunal civil de Port-au-Prince, Claudy Gassant, a laissé la capitale haïtienne mardi en milieu de journée pour la République Dominicaine où il aurait été nommé au Consulat d’Haïti à Santiago (Cibao, Nord).

Aucun communiqué officiel n’est venu renseigner sur l’affectation de M. Gassant au Consulat haïtien de Santiago. Des sources proches du Ministère haïtien des affaires étrangères ont cependant confirmé, sous couvert de l’anonymat, qu’un passeport officiel a été remis à l’ex-chef du Parquet de Port-au-Prince pour qu’il se rende en territoire voisin.

Avant d’atteindre la République dominicaine via la frontière, Claudy Gassant a restitué les biens de l’Etat qui avaient été mis à sa disposition, .dont des armes et un véhicule blindé, a appris Radio Kiskeya. Les policiers qui assuraient sa sécurité rapprochée ont reçu l’ordre de réintégrer l’Unité de Sécurité Générale du Palais National (USGPN) dont ils étaient issus.

Claudy Gassant a annoncé la semaine dernière sa démission du poste de Chef du Parquet du Tribunal civil de Port-au-Prince au fort d’une grave crise l’ayant pratiquement mis aux prises avec le Commandement de la Police Nationale d’Haïti (PNH). Il s’y était taillé la réputation d’un magistrat aux pouvoirs immenses, n’ayant à rendre compte de ses actes qu’au Chef de l’Etat. Tout en lui reconnaissant des vertus, notamment en ce qui concerne sa volonté de réformer le Parquet et de renforcer l’action publique contre le banditisme, la corruption et le trafic illicite des stupéfiants, des représentants de divers secteurs de la société haïtienne lui ont tout de même reproché un penchant marqué vers les excès et les abus de pouvoir.

Le départ pour la République Dominicaine de « l’homme fort » du Parquet de20la capitale est venu démentir les prédictions du sénateur de l’Ouest Jean Hector Anacacis qui avaient laissé croire à des journalistes que Gassant allait être nommé à un poste plus important. Sans nommer quiconque, le parlementaire avait ironiquement souhaité la démission de certaines personnes qui auraient honte d’être encore à leurs postes au moment où l’ex-Commissaire du Gouvernement accéderait à cette « haute fonction ». D’aucuns y avaient vu une allusion à peine voilée au Commandant en Chef de la PNH, Mario Andrésol, au sujet de qui circulaient dans le même temps des rumeurs de démission.

Claudy Gassant se serait finalement résolu à prendre la direction de la République Dominicaine après l’échec d’intenses tractations visant à lui trouver un nouveau poste important au sein de l’appareil d’Etat, selon des informations non officielles. Ces tractations auraient impliqué de fervents défenseurs haïtiens de Gassant, faisant partie tant de l’administration Alexis/Préval que d’importantes institutions internationales. [jmd/RK]

Haiti-Diplomacy

The former Government Commissioner Claudy Gassant was "appointed" to the Consulate of Haiti in Santiago (north of the Dominican Republic). Intense negotiations to find him a higher position in Haiti have been unsuccessfulas of Wednesday, August 20, 2008,

Radio Kiskeya

The former Government Commissioner with the Civil Court of Port-au-Prince, Claudy Gassant, left the Haitian capital Tuesday, mid-day, for the Dominican Republic where he was appointed to the Consulate of Haiti in Santiago (Cibao North).

Before reaching the Dominican Republic through the border, Claudy Gassant returned the state property that had been placed at his disposal. Including weapons and an armoured vehicle, says Radio Kiskeya. The police officers who ensured its security had been ordered to reinstate the General Security Unit of the National Palace (USGPN) where they came from.

Claudy Gassant announced last week his resignation from the post of Chief of Public Prosecutions Civil Court of Port-au-Prince during a very serious crisis which he had virtually been grappling with the Command of the Haitian National Police (HNP ). He had carved out a reputation as a judge with immense powers, and now had to account for his actions as head of state. While recognizing the virtues, especially as regards its willingness to reform the prosecution and to strengthen public action against banditry, corruption and illicit trafficking in narcotics, representatives of various sectors of Haitian society criticized a marked penchant to the excesses and abuses of power.

The departure for the Dominican Republic the "strong man" of Public Prosecutions de20la capital came to refute the predictions of the West Senator John Hector Anacacis who had suggested to reporters that Gassant would be appointed to a more important role. Without naming anyone, the parliamentarian had ironically called for the resignation of some people who would still be ashamed of their posts when the former Government Commissioner acceded to this "high office". Some had seen a veiled allusion to the Commander in Chief of the Haitian National Police, Mario Andrésol, about which were circulating at the same time rumors of resignation.

Claudy Gassant finally resolved to accept the direction of the Dominican Republic after the failure of intense negotiations aimed at finding a new important post within the State apparatus, according to unofficial information. These negotiations have involved strong supporters of Haitian Gassant, forming part of both the hotel Alexis / Préval that major international institutions. [JMD / RK]
