Haitian Police Chief, Godson Orelus, has had his commission extended for three more years by presidential decree, since Haiti won't have a sitting parliament until 2016.
Orelus has hired 100-plus officers with known ties to Martelly, with more than a third of them lacking police academy training.
The police have allowed violent behavior to predominate at August's parliamentary elections to discourage balloting at the polls. In other instances they have used excessive force against peaceful protestors.
