A presidential spokesman says Haiti’s justice minister has stepped down.
National Palace spokesman Lucien Jura says Justice Minister Josue Pierre-Louis handed in his resignation Tuesday afternoon.
The resignation comes after the Chamber of Deputies asked for his dismissal following the overnight lock up of Dep. Arnel Belizaire in October.
The lawmakers were outraged that police jailed Belizaire even though he enjoys immunity as an elected official and there was no formal request to lift his immunity.
They believe Pierre-Louis was one of several officials who ordered Belizaire’s detention.
Belizaire was detained one week after Pierre-Louis took his post along with the rest of Haiti’s new Cabinet.

Ki kote nou prale?
Yo pa konn tande le yo pale avek yo…
Josue Pierre-Louis se yon lavalasyen enkondisyonel k ap kache tankou tout lot moun yo anba zel makout yo pou li evite santans k ap prepare pou yo to ou ta.
Si Pierre -Louis te serye, ta swiv egzanp major Guillaume nan: Bay tet li to, le li gen to.Josue pa ka kwe ke li ta posib pou li ta fin fe tout zak sa yo nan ministe lajistis, epi pou li ta panse ke li pa to jwenn monnen pyes li.
Le josue te komise gouvenman sou ZENGLENDO Aristid la,se limenm ki te responsab pou pesekite tout moun ki te refize bese tet yo douvan vakabon ki rele Aristid la ak tout lot malandren parey yo.
Josue te oganize lakay Aristid nan Taba yon reyinyon pou drese yon lis moun ke limenm ak Aristid te kwe ke moun sa yo sete Ajan CIA ki tap defann entere ameriken nan peyi eke moun sa yo dwe swa mouri oubyen ale annekzil.
Josue dwe jwenn arestasyon li prese prese.Epi nou nan degonn li.Josue genyen anpil poul rakonte bay lajistis sou dosye jEAN Dominique ak anpil lot dosye asasinay ke nou pako ap site kounyeya.Dosye tankou dosye dwog, kidnaping elatriye.
Kom tou, tout kabine sa a pral tonbe, ebyen, n ap sib.
Everyone misses the points that Belezaire is a criminal….but this should not keep him from sitting in Parliament with the other criminals
