President Jovenel Moïse said his decree stating the government no longer needs counsel from the Haitian courts takes the load off the Superior Court of Accounts and Administrative Litigation (CSC/CA). 

“I took away from what they’re carrying so the weight on their back can be lighter,” Moïse on Radio Metropole on Monday. “I didn’t take away from their power.”

Moïse signed the decree on Nov. 6. Scores of Haitians quickly said he was abusing his power by diminishing the CSC/CA’s oversight authority and labeled him a dictator. Source
