Haitian president, others may be removed from office,
incarcerated afterward for grave crimes
By Yves A. Isidor, Wehaitians.com
CAMBRIDGE, MA, Jan. 4 - One of the talks of Haitians living
in Haiti and their fellow compatriots dispersed around the globe in search of a
better life has for months been Haiti's President Michel Joseph Martelly is a
voluntary United States citizen by naturalization.
"President Martelly, three cabinet ministers and a cabinet
secretary no longer enjoy the rights and privileges of those who belong to Haiti
by nationality because foreign citizenship was granted to them after they each
voluntarily submitted, at the very least, a complete application sheet," Senator Moise Jean-Charles,
with certitude, told Haiti's Radio Kiskeya Wednesday during a lived interview.
The rights citizens have by being Haitians citizens are
covered by ARTICLE 13 of Haiti's 1987 charter. Haitian nationality is lost
by: a. Naturalization in a foreign country; b. Holding a political post in the
service of a foreign country; c. Continuous residence abroad of a naturalized
Haitian without duly granted authorization by a competent official. Anyone who
loses his nationality in this manner may not reacquire it.
More, reads ARTICLE 15 of the nation's 1987 constitution, dual Haitian and
foreign nationality is in no case permitted.
It is because of the above constitutional articles' provisions and a
particular legal precedent that concerns former
Senator Rudolph Boulos Mr. Moise, who
represents the northern region of Haiti in parliament, is inclined to commence
parliamentary proceedings against the alleged usurpers to subsequently
remove them them from their functions, and ultimately, see them all sentenced to
prison for a long duration of time after they face Haiti High Court of Justice
or Supreme Court.
The latest turning point justs ad to the continuing and ever occurring
political crisis of dictatorial nature in Haiti, where less than five days ago a
chief prosecutor submitted his letter of resignation to his hierarchical
chief instead of navigating in President Martelly's world of illegality, such as
issuing fraudulent arrest warrants, even against assumed political opponents.
