The Bar Association of Port-au-Prince announced it would be auditing its rolls to review the authenticity of judges and lawyers practicing in the capital city. Lawyers have come under suspicion in the press for not meeting conditions set by the association.
"The file of certification of lawyers at the bar of Port-au-Prince remains for us a great concern because, we hear that some lawyers do not meet the substantive conditions to practice the profession. Rumors suggest that their papers (Bac 1, Bac 2, or license) are not regular, "told the Nouvelliste the bâtonnier Stanley Gaston, pointing out that suspicions of irregularities do not concern members of the bar of its jurisdiction only .
