Senator Jean Marie Salomon

Senator Jean Marie Salomon

Here is a picture of the Senator of South, Jean Marie Salomon.

In 2011, Jean-Marie Salomon (born April 17, 1977), the young lawyer became the youngest Government Commissioner appointed to the Court of First Instance of Les Cayes. On September 8, 2014, he came to the limelight by arresting Mr. Evintz Daniel, a friend of President Martelly. Salomon recovered a large quantity of marijuana aboard his yacht floating on the sea. However, the next day, his superior, the Minister of Justice, Jean Renel Sanon was informed that Jean Marie Solomon Junior has been relieved of his function and suspended for abuse of power. Salomon could not accept that undeniable injustice; he resigned and left the country. He came back a few months later, took part in the Parliamentary election in 2015 and became an elected Senator from the South.
