Here is a picture of the road accident resulting in Four commandos suspected in Commissariat attack were found dead.
On Tuesday, May 16, 2016, about 50 gunmen wearing faded green uniforms that appeared to be from Haiti's disbanded military, attacked the Les Cayes police station. They killed one police officer (Tisson Jean-Pierre) and wounded at least two others before fleeing. The assailants ransacked the police station, stole guns and tortured the police officers. When they tried to escape in a white van, it swerved off a road and tumbled into a ravine, killing three of the attackers. One of them was killed earlier during a shootout with officers in the police station. Three of the attackers were arrested. One of the arrested attackers has linked former Senator Guy Philippe with this attack. Philippe is a former Tonton Macoutes leader, suspended Haitian Police Chief, and a presidential candidate (Front for National Reconstruction, a guerrilla group). Guy Philippe has a longstanding arrest warrant of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency over charges of cocaine smuggling and money laundering, and the Human Rights Watch has accused him of extrajudicial killings.
Here is the picture of the Seven demobilized soldiers of Haiti FAD'H who were arrested in St. Mark.
As per the announcement of Jean Joras Sydney, the Commissioner of Police of St. Mark, on April 14, 2016, the National Police of Haiti (PNH) with the support of MINUSTAH have arrested seven demobilized soldiers of the disbanded Armed Forces of Haiti (FAd'H) from the office of an old building belonging to the Frecyneau police station, in the southern part of the capital city. These soldiers were in olive green uniform and came from towns of Jacmel and Petionville. The police was alerted by the local people about the presence of these former military members. During the operation, there was no exchange of fire. They were arrested peacefully while some of the arrestees were in sleeping condition.
It can only take place in Haiti.How is it possible for men called themselves demobilized soldiers, Remobilized Military, etc., to act with such confidence and arrogance.
Remember Haiti currently has a police force, a seating president and United Nations forces in the form of MINUSTAH
Who is providing security for the Haitian population? certainly, not the current forces.
Is it time to come out and state clearly that the Haitian population has no security?
Should we say that these forces have proved incapable of handling security issues in Haiti?
Here is a picture of some former military of FADH in the streets of Port-au-Prince in February, 2016.
Haitian army was disbanded by former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 1995, because of their notorious record of toppling Haitian governments since the country's independence two centuries earlier. Ironically, Aristide himself was twice ousted in coups; last and the second time, he was toppled by a US-backed military coup back in 2004. In last November, President Martelly and Prime Minister Evans Paul through a decree, the "Conseil Des Ministres", energized the former army men by taking steps to revive the armed forces. A Defence Minister was named, unit of military engineers was recreated, and some recruits were sent to Ecuador for training. Jean Fednel Lafalaise, a former sergeant in his 60s told Reuters, we need a commander-in-chief and a high command at the head of the military so that we can function normally. Earlier, President Martelly has repeatedly pledged that the army would be revived to protect the border, coastlines and the country's few remaining forests. However, following the election debacle, the ex-military people were seen rallying in support of both the outgoing President Michel Martelly and his hand-picked candidate Jovenel Moïse for the next presidential race. While driving through the capital in convoys, some of them were waving weapons and firing into the air.
It was reported that over a dozen armed bandits dressed in military claiming to be former FADH military have terrorized the population of Arcahaie today. According to witnesses, they burned Police Station in Saint-Medard and also took the opportunity to rob a credit Union in the same area.
