The high command of the Haitian National Police vehemently condemns the behavior of people claiming to be part of the police force, associating with bandits of all stripes to burn down public property and sow terror. The DG of the PNH calls on his police officers to stand out from ill-intentioned individuals and promises to overcome insecurity and bring the culprits to justice.
This September 16, 2020, a group of police claiming to be part of the fantom 509 group, armed and hooded, marched through the streets of the capital. They demanded the release of Jean Pascal Alexandre, an agent of the Narcotics Trafficking Brigade (BLTS), arrested as part of their movement last May. During this spontaneous movement, more than ten vehicles registered with the State Service were set on fire at the airport intersection, Delmas 17, Delmas 47, Delmas 75 and in Pétion-Ville. A pressure truck from the town hall of Delmas was also set on fire, national media reported.
Note that Fantom 509 was in the streets of Port-au-Prince on September 12 and 14 to protest by demanding the release of Jean Pascal Alexandre.
