Recently, the court of summary proceedings (tribunal des référés) declares itself incompetent to rule on the file of the nine senators whose term of office has expired.

On Thursday, February 20, some of these senators who were removed were able to enter the precincts of the Senate after being prevented by the police under the orders of the Executive, a haitian news media reported.

"We have come to serve this court decision on the office of the third of the Senate," the senators told the news media.
