Justice Minister Jean Renel Sanon Stands appointed Francisco Rene
Minister of Justice, Jean Renel Sanon, appointed Francisco René the new Port-au-Prince Chief Prosecutor despite protest by Carlos Hercules, Law Societies President.
Hercules points out René is unfit to serve as Chief Prosecutor because every government post he has held scandal has followed him. The Haitian Bar Association has tried to disbar him without success.
Hercules mailed Sanon, stating his objections to Francisco Rene's appointment. Sanon says he will uphold René's appointment because he "brings order and I appreciate his work."
