PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) – The government prosecutor for Port-au-Prince, Jean Danton Léger, reminded law enforcement and immigration officials that a departure ban and warrant for arrest was still in effect for Ronald “Roro” Nelson, an adviser to former President Michel J. Martelly.

Government Commissioner Léger called on the National Police of Haiti (PNH), immigration and other enforcement officials to maintain the bans after Nelson was spotted playing soccer during a police versus community friendly match.

Mr. Léger also responded to claims that he met face-to-face with Roro Nelson, and even shook his hand, at a funeral for the mother of former President Joseph Michel Martelly.

A report from Garry Pierre Paul Charles on Monday suggested that Nelson was stopped from leaving Haiti at the Toussaint L’Ouverture International Airport. The host of Scoop FM’s Ayiti Debat also said that authorities stripped Nelson of his passport.


Jean Danton Leger says that steps have been taken by the Prosecutor for arrest offenders to prescribed electoral decree. He announced that requested the Minister of Justice, Mr. Edward Junior Camille, logistics to work on election day.

Preventing Extended Detentions

The head of the Procuratorate announced the release of 200 prisoners, some of which have served their sentences and other beneficiaries of judicial decisions. He also announced that the funeral of two prisoners will be sung Friday, November 11, 2016.
