PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht)- The government ministers brought their travel documents this Thursday, February 23 before the Senate Committee investigating the nationality of members of the executive including President Martelly.
11 ministers went personally to parliament a week to submit their documents after they asked the Senate committee to postpone the filing of the material.
Secretaries of State did the same by submitting the documents required by the commission of inquiry on Thursday.
Ministers were invited to submit their travel documents have resolved not to do so with the presidency on February 13.
All ministers wore a pink bracelet signed “Michel Martelly Bald Head”, said a journalist. Among the ministers present, Laurent Lamothe, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Pierre Raymond Dumas, Minister of Culture.
In all fairness, the Chamber of Deputies, and Senate should do the same thing, also providing proof that they have not been convicted of a felony offense, which would bar them from office.
At least 30 Deputies and Senators have dual citizenship.
Others have criminal records which bar them from being a candidate, let alone a sitting member.
