Members of Haiti’s high court said they did not prohibit attorneys who marched to denounce Monferrier Dorval’s death from joining the annual judicial reopening ceremony, as had been reported, they said in a note published on Tuesday. 

The Court of Cassation said the protesting attorneys made the decision themselves not to join the ceremony because they thought marching was more important. 

Dorval, who was the head of the Port-au-Prince bar, was assassinated in his home Aug. 28, hours after calling for changes in the constitution. Source
