Jocelerme Privert reported having sent letters to all political parties represented in Parliament or not, in order to discuss the establishment of the Verification Commission.

The G-8 is sorry to not be able to attend this meeting in order not to give substance to the perception of those who see in the multiplication of these meetings a delaying tactic or the temptation to use the Commission as a blackmail tool [ …]”
