The funeral for Monferrier Dorval, former head of the Port-au-Prince bar, was held privately at Parc du Souvenir in Port-au-Prince Thursday.

Dorval was assassinated hours after he called for changes to the Haitian constitution Aug. 28. Hailing from Grande-Saline, a commune in the Artibonite Department, Dorval was also a professor at the University of Haiti (UEH). His death triggered numerous protests to denounce his murder.
