Originally: Arrest of Opposition Leader in Cap-Haitien
The police did not allow the Opposition Front of the North, FRON, in Cap-Haitien to demonstrate yesterday because they said they did not receive timely notification. FRON official Charles Eluscard has been arrested.
Professor Hubert De Ronceray, leader of the Patriotic Movement To Rescue the Nation, MPSN, reacts to Eluscard’s arrest and detention. He explains that Eluscard is one of the FRON’s most prominent figures. He says, “The police are serving a dictatorship that does not allow people to demonstrate, that does not allow people to express their opinions about barbaric actions.” He adds, “We believe that the Haitian National Police (PNH) is unfortunately infested with scoundrels….” He hopes that honest members of the PNH will withdraw their support for the government. De Ronceray announces that he will hold a press conference tomorrow.
