Terribly offended. In addition to this great sadness that runs through my whole being, I feel this feeling of revolt that when it invades you leads to unreason, gives you a thirst for revenge and makes you lose all tolerance.
I'm disgusted by this massacre of my colleagues. Especially since it is THE POLICE, this sister authority, placed to protect them, who delivered them to the bandits. An act of primitive barbarism, where Roman slaves were placed in cages to fight wild beasts.
No resistance or attempt to defend the customs officers who came to the police station in the only hope of finding assistance, but they could not know that THE POLICE only protects on instruction. And orders do not always come in.
Let me tell you that police officers were out of the ordinary in relation to bandits! I would say that they are never more numerous when it is a manifestation of streets.
Let's move on. The senior management of the AGD can be blamed for some discrepancies. In one way or another, relief should be found by these petty officials. This is our first assignment, to accompany the customs officer in the exercise of his function and ensure a safe environment. There is the Directorate of Customs Surveillance which is armed. And there is also a Security Directorate at the AGD. And Malpasse is less than an hour (1h) away. It is reported that the bandits took more than three (3) hours to complete their packages. What is the reason why these structures have not been able to have the obligatory contact able to turn on the help?
As responsible within the institution, I feel guilty and I am ashamed in front of this impotence of the AGD. Because it must be understood that this ambush was thus caused by the weakness of these structures of the institution. The configuration of the area does not correspond to the operations, the way we do it and the inadequate equipment and materials we have. At the same time, it is necessary to denounce the composition of the multi-institutional brigades; these task forces whose missions are rather poorly defined and poorly arranged. The merging of participants' roles does not seem real through the operational modes proposed to these multi-dimensional bodies. The AGD will need to review with the other state authorities a new model of collaboration, if necessary, and new strategies. Because it is question of missions sovereign and super sensitive to accomplish. It implies a specialization, didcipline and a certain knowledge of the procedures
I did not make this paper to complain, nor to encourage you dear colleagues in your black and unproductive thoughts; but to remind you that the atrocious death of these comrades must not be a blockage or a shame in your work. On the contrary, it proves that customs controls are proving more than ever indispensable for the progress of the national economy and international trade. And this is proof that we will have to strengthen and unite and reunite because the enemy is the very one for whom we take every day every risk and peril. We must therefore organize ourselves to make the specific requirements appropriate to the very nature of our missions and our work.
Beautiful loss. Great sadness. STAY IN PEACE CAMARADES fallen on the battlefield. Your blood will not flow for nothing. The AGD will have to go with all your family properly. AND YOUR ASSASSINATION will serve as pride and nobility to the customs profession. It brings serenity, convivoaloté, solidarity and dignity to all Haitian customs officers.
sad but djanm!
