Depute Arnel Belizaire Released From Prison

Haitian lawmaker Arnel Belizaire was released from prison after being arrested by police and driven to the National Penitentiary.

It was an overnight detention, the Associated Press says.

AP also report...

"Following his release, Dep. Arnel Belizaire went to parliament as several dozen supporters gathered outside the building to greet him with hugs and cheers"

I wonder what this means... The next sentence, I mean...

AP says: "The head of the United Nations mission in Haiti and the French Embassy on Friday responded to Belizaire's detention by issuing statements. France urged the government and legislature to bear in mind "procedures" involving the separation of powers and parliamentary immunity."

Shame on us. We should never have to be reminded by outsiders on the separation between the government and legislature and the immunity enjoyed by the deputies and government officials.

The Critical Thinking Skills and knowledge of governement policies as well as the constitution come into questions.

Where is Dr. Mirlande Manigat who is very knowledgeable on the Haitian Constitution?
