PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht)- Several hundred of people demonstrated Tuesday, February 7 in the streets of Port-au-Prince to demand the head of state to hand over his passport to the Senate committee to investigate on the alleged foreign nationalities of Martelly himself and those of some officials of his government.
These protesters who come from different organizations of Port-au-Prince chanted hostile remarks to the Head of State on tour in Latin America.
They reported that "Martelly has by no means the right not to want to cooperate with the commission, since it holds the passport is the property of the Haitian state."
Further, protesters criticized the free education program advocated by the government-Martelly Conille. A program which they say is not effective.
Protesters are also very angry against the aggressive behavior of the head of state at the point of parliamentarians and the media. They believe that with behavior like this, "President Martelly canâ€™t be seen as a model for the youth of the country".
In addition, demonstrations were held Tuesday in Port-au-Prince to mark the 26th anniversary of the fall of Duvalier.
