Haiti - Justice : Response from Martine Moïse's lawyer to the order of Judge Walther W. Voltaire

In a correspondence addressed to Me Edler Guillaume Government Commissioner at the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince, Me Emmanuel Jeanty of “EXPERTUS FIRME D’AVOCATS” on behalf of his client Martine Moïse, sets out his doubts and concerns following the publication on social networks (and in the electronic, national and international press) of the accusations contained in the order of Judge Walther W. Voltaire in the File of the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse implicating his wife Martine Moïse https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-41708-haiti-flash-51-people-indicted-in-the-assassination-of-the-president-including-martine-moise-claude-joseph-and-leon-charles-list.html

“[…] Mr. Commissioner,

[…] at the time of writing, a possible copy of a referral order emanating from the office of investigating judge Walther Wesser VOLTAIRE, in charge of the case of the assassination of President Jovenel MOISE, has gone viral on social networks which copy is devoid of the essential elements of legality and authenticity, namely the signature of the investigating judge and the seal of his office.

As a complaining party, engaged in the legal process, they expect that the meaning of any important decision will be transmitted to them, in accordance with established procedures, through their election of domicile.

In the event that this unauthenticated copy of the order is not a counterfeit, the chronology of this copy once again raises legitimate questions in the conduct of this trial. As the content, the spirit, the letter and the appearance of such a monumental work for an entire Nation due to its importance and the secrecy with which it should be cloaked, can be put into circulation on social networks even before its official version ?

Furthermore, it is common knowledge that the mandate of the investigating judge had already expired before the dissemination on online platforms of this alleged order, devoid of any authentication. This temporal inconsistency justifies reasonable doubts about the integrity of the judicial process and raises concerns about the validity of these events. It is therefore imperative that a sheaf of light be projected onto this paradoxical situation in an attempt to preserve the integrity of the judicial system and guarantee respect for the fundamental rights of all parties involved in this case.

For which, the exhibitors ask you to believe, Mr. Commissioner, in the expression of their respectful feelings. It will be right and perfect harmony in the judicial system which can no longer support a new scandal.”
