PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) – Senator Steven Benoit (Ouest/Alternative) wants the president to send very quickly, in addition to his eight passports, his U.S. green card to the Senate Inquiry Committee. As for Senator Jean-Charles Moïse (Nord/Inite), he wants the inquiry into the nationality of head of state to be more focused on the track of the second identity of the president, Michael J. Martelly.
Senate President Simon Dieuseul Desras (Centre/Lavni) questions the fact that the president went through another institution to deliver his travel documents to the special commission of inquiry on his nationality.
“Would this mean that the head of state does not recognize the authority of Parliament or at least he no longer wants to work with the legislature,” asked the member Desras.
Despite these concerns, the Senate President underlines “some willingness of President Michel Martelly to cooperate to end the inquiry into the nationality of the government members including his own.”
Welcoming the gesture of Religions for Peace, he invited “to continue in this direction to promote stability in the country,” reported Radio Vision 2000.
“At the request of the Conference of Presidents of the Senate permanent committees, the inquiry will work throughout the weekend in order to return Martelly’s passports to religious authorities, Monday afternoon,” said Senator Steven Benoit.
“The commission also hopes to produce another preliminary report by next Wednesday or Thursday,” reported West Senator who wants the President Martelly to send quickly his U.S. green card (in the name of Michael Joseph Martelly) to the commission.
As for Senator Moïse, he wants “the inquiry into the nationality of head of state to be more focused on the track of the second alleged identity of the Haitian president, Michael J. Martelly.”
North Senator welcomed the fact by President to hand over his passports to the inquiry commission, although he calls a “masquerade” the press conference Thursday afternoon at the National Palace.
