PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) - The head of prosecutions in Port-au-Prince, Government Commissioner, Lionel Constant Bourgoin, resigned on Saturday after 26 days on the job. The government will have to find its fifth prosecutor in 6 months.
The government prosecutor sent his letter of resignation to Justice Minister Pierre Michel Brunache following bans imposed to the former members of the CEP, learned Haiti Press Network.
The former head of the prosecutions refused to arrest members of the former Provisional Electoral Council dissolved by presidential decree on December 30.
"Yes I delivered the letter of resignation, I can not discredit me in the case of Gaillot Dorsainvil. People want to pervert my vision of the office of commissioner of the government," said Mr. Bourgoin.
The magistrate considers that the restrictions that the government wants to impose on members of the CEP undermine their freedom as they are without a warrant.
"We must get rid of old practices that are to arrest people for everything," responded Commissioner Bourgoin a former director of the Justice Academy.

En su oficina
I have the regret of presenting to you my resignation as Commissioner of the Government at the Court of First Instance of Port-au-Prince.
Since assuming office on Monday, December 5, I have continually acted on behalf of society to ensure the proper application of the law and respect for public order, this was for an effective public action and respectful of individual liberties.
Because of my deep convictions, fully aware of the extent of my missions, I can not be the armed wing of any power of authoritarian inspiration eager to establish its order.
With your understanding, I ask you, Mr. Minister, to accept my resignation.
