PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) – Senator Moïse Jean-Charles (Nord/Inite) persists that President Michel Martelly is both U.S. and Italian citizen.
The North parliamentarian says he will submit evidences he has to the Senate commission appointed Monday on this issue.
The second senator from North Moise Jean-Charles, who says that President Michel Martelly and at least three members of the government are foreign nationals, reaffirmed Monday his willingness to go through with the case despite threats death which he claims to be the object.
“Threats do not scare me, on the contrary, they reinforce my conviction to follow through, said parliamentary stating that in addition to Martelly, Laurent Lamothe Ministers (Foreign Affairs), Stephanie Balmer Vildrouin (tourism), the Secretary of State George Racine, he has new information involving another member of the government, reports the Haitian Press Agency (AHP).
As for the President Martelly, Senator Jean-Charles reports that he will communicate his "U.S. passport number" to his colleagues in the Senate Committee of Inquiry into the alleged foreign citizenship of members of the government and the Head of the state.
According to the information he claims to have, Michel Martelly have both American and Italian citizenships and says he’s ready to prove it.
On their side,the foreign minister Laurent Lamothe would be Bolivian, Minister Stephanie Balmir would have Venezuelan nationality.
According to the same information, Georges Racine Secretary of State for the Interior would be a U.S. citizen.
The MP informed he will try to convince the Lower House to obtain 2 / 3 of its members who are ready to make the impeachment of President Martelly for his dismissal.
Senator Jean-Maxime Roumer (Grande Anse/Inite) estimates that his colleague Jean-Charles should prove his allegations. He believes that important matter should not be debated in the press.
MP Joseph Wilbert Deshommes (Grande Saline/Inite) goes in the same direction and recalls that during the last Parliament (the 48th), senators whose foreign nationality has been proven, were dismissed.
It will be the same, he promises, for the head of state and government members, if Senator Jean-Charles can provide evidences of what he says.
The Senate committee, formed last November 28 in the wake of the case of the arrest of the member Arnel Belizaire (Delmas/Independent), to investigate the nationality of members of government and head of state, was reorganized on last Monday and is now led by Senator Joseph Lambert (Sud-Est/Inite) while Youri Latortue (Artibonite/AAA) is the recording secretary.
These parliamentarians are both considered very close to President Martelly, despite the differences they had with him during the presidential campaign.
Senator Steven Benoit urges the Commission to begin to work on this issue that could plunge the country into a new crisis.
