If it is true, that is part of the problem with haitian culture and politic.

We must respect the laws and systems even though the beneficiary is a foe. President Martelly must remember that he will be a "former president" in the near future (3 years).

Do we want the zealous thugs taking care of his security?

Mr Aristide is most and foremost a politician.

Whatever he has to say will always have political undertones.

However, this is no reason why the Martelly administration should bypass the laws of the country and remove all security which the ex-president is entitled to.It is clear that Mr Martelly is espousing a dangerous precedence a prelude to Duvalier style of authoritarian dictatorship.
