After months of scandals and conflict, the self-proclaimed “PetroCaribe case manager” finally released the prosecutor's office in Port-au-Prince.
“ I decided to resign my duties as Government Commissioner at the Port-au-Prince Court of First Instance and as a member of the Superior Council of the Judiciary. Because I have too high regard for politics in the service of the Haitian nation to accept to be used as a tool for manipulation and perversion of justice. “Here are the explanations he provided in his letter
This clearly shows that Okam was only a Remote Rogue to pretend that the PetroCaribe record was progressing. Yet it was only an exercise in diversion.
But while the super Clamé Ocnam Daméus was playing his game to please his bosses, how many wrongs he has done to the Nation and the Haitian Justice? How many trials had to be postponed because of his excessive zeal?
Since impunity is routine in Haiti, after all the damage caused by Clamé Ocnam Daméus, he gets out of his head as if from scratch was. This is the model advocated by the authorities …
“ I thus remain a legitimate son of this justice and I love him too much to make me an accomplice of those who want to murder him, and this, of some political sensitivity that it can be. Faced with the many difficulties and political pressures of all kinds that prevent me from carrying out my work as a defender of society, I find myself obliged to resign from these positions. One day, a truly free and independent justice will tell the whole truth about the big issues of the time and history will then be my one and only judge. “These are the words he boldly added to his letter announcing his departure from the post that was so obstinate.
From a distance, one also wonders if it was chance that prompted Mr. Daméus to resign exactly when the Dermalog case involving the first lady Martine Moïse, was burst, while for more than two months, blocked the judicial system by refusing to meet the requirements of the bar lawyers of the bar of Port-au-Prince. Funny coincidence!
Add Clamé Ocnam Daméus had entered in March 2017 at the head of the prosecution of Port-au-Prince and left behind him, following his resignation, December 14, 2018, a lot of unfinished records such as that the overcharging of school kits, the attack of the presidential motorcade and the famous PetroCaribe file which he himself had designated as the manager.
The one who was chosen to succeed Mr. Daméus is Paul Eronce Villard, a former substitute of the Government Commissioner who spent 3 years at the prosecutor's office. Let's hope that Mr. Villard, who has received training at the School of the Judiciary in Bordeaux, France, will do better than his predecessor.
