Suspended due to the clerks’ strike for several weeks, the criminal proceedings without jury assistance resumed Monday June 3, 2024 at the level of the Court of First Instance of Miragoâne, noted Gazette Haiti.

More than ten cases are awaiting judgment during this meeting, according to the dean of the PTI of Miragoâne, Magistrate Gérard Nertilus, who says he is determined to fight prolonged preventive detention in his jurisdiction.

For the first day, the case of the two journalists Wilson Iris alias Sondy and Wilson Joseph alias Maestro accused of gang rape and kidnapping of a 17-year-old girl in December 2022 was heard, but did not come to a conclusion for a second times, due to the state of health of one of the accused. According to our source, this file could be resumed next Monday.

Yesterday, Tuesday, June 4, 2024, the man named Milord Jackson was sentenced to 15 years in prison for having been found guilty of burning a house and attempting to murder Belizaire Eligène in the locality of Savane Ouest, first municipal section of Miragoâne in March 2021. In this same file, Franciste Milord alias (Nènè) and Paulner Louigène alias (Lepikout) who, respectively, were responsible for paying the costs of the package and identifying the targets, but who, now are on the run, have, according to article 366 of the penal code, 10 days to present themselves otherwise they will also be sentenced in absentia.

This Wednesday, the case of Otonniel Moreau known as Andrenel Moreau alias (Ticheni) accused of rape of the minor Neica Irma Theophil was on the docket.

At a time when hundreds of inmates are starving and screaming in distress at the largest prison center in the Nippes department (Anse-a-veau), this siege will, whatever it is, unclog the large prison, where they pile up like sardines without knowing, for the most part, their fate.
