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.

Let us hope, haitians can see to it and make him pay a political price for this.
