On radio Magik9 Friday, Senator Youri Latortue agreed with the president on the issue of political persecution. "No one should be persecuted on the basis of their political affiliation," he argues. However, nuance Latortue, the president made a mistake in his comments on the report.

"This report is the work of the Haitian Parliament, an independent power. Articles 59 and 60 of the Constitution are clear. The Senate, after conducting its investigation, according to Article 118 of the Constitution, can follow up at the level of the courts, "he says.

President Jovenel Moise "can see to is that independent powers are doing their job. He can encourage this to be done impartially. But a statement in which he stands in front of the parliamentarians is regrettable. A president can not interfere in the affairs of the legislature, just as a senator can not interfere in the affairs of the executive. The Senate will continue to do its job since it is part of an independent power and it intends to keep its independence, "Senator Youri Latortue promises.

What do you think about that?
