PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – The adviser to former President Michel Martelly, Ronald “Roro” Nelson, for the third consecutive time failed to appear before justice officials despite having a warrant for his arrest and interdiction on leaving the country issued against him.
Nelson, who served as adviser on matters of National Palace security for the Martelly regime, is the subject of a number of complaints that range from assault, battery and land-theft to threats of death, attempted murder and/or man slaughter according to the Office of Government Commissioner Danton Leger.
At the first invitation by Government Commissioner Danton Leger, Roro Nelson responded with defiance in a press conference, expressing his exception to the interdiction on travel outside of the country placed against him. Since, a warrant for his arrest in order to answer the charges he is indicted for has been issued but Nelson has not been heard or seen in public.
The office of the head of prosecutions in Port-au-Prince said that the interdiction and warrant can possibly lifted after Nelson has appeared before the justice officials to answer questions but the actions of Nelson are aggravating the issuing and worsening the charges against him.
