Here is a picture of the ruins of the residence of Former Haitian President President Nicolas Fabre Geffrard at Anse -a -Veau.
During his time in office Geffrard had some modest accomplishments in the spheres of administration, justice, the economy, education, finance, agriculture, and the military. He supported trade agreements and increased exports with the opening of ports in Aquinas, Miragoane, and Saint Marc. He also updated the political infrastructure of the government. An adept negotiator he was instrumental in helping the Dominican Republic retain its sovereignty.
In 1858 he was asked by the military to lead an insurrection against Faustin I and was successful, establishing his claim to the presidency in Gonaives. Geffrard stayed in office for eight years, before he was ousted by Sylvain Salnave, whom the country now favored. Although he had decreed himself president for life, his successor, Salnave, was elected to replace him. Geffrard resigned without protest and retired to Kingston, Jamaica where he died in 1878.
Here is a picture of the new Court of First Instance of Anse-à-Veau
The ribbons of the newly built Court of First Instance were cut on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. The special inauguration was peopled by Director General of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, Jean Roudy Aly, among others, at the Court's new premises in Anse-à-Veau.
The project is one under the expansion plan that would see fifty Justice buildings being built each year. The new building is more pleasing to the eye and offers the judges in situ more space and comfort.
