Hundreds of journalists took to the streets of Port-au-Prince Thursday to denounce police brutality against the media.
The march came one week after police officers were seen assaulting several reporters covering another protest.
During Thursday’s march, the journalists stopped in front of the Office of Citizen’s Protection and the National Network of Human Rights Defense to deliver speeches.
Some prominent journalists present included Roberson Alphonse from Le Nouvelliste, Lunie Joseph and Dimanche Robeste from Radio Tele Zenith. Source
Jean-Bart’s lawyers send letter to court of arbitration to claim innocence
Yves Jean-Bart’s lawyers sent an open letter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Thursday stating that they will contest FIFA’s decision that bans him from soccer for sexually abusing players.
FIFA’s decision to bar Jean-Bart came last November, after they found him guilty of the sexual abuse.
Jean-Bart is calmly waiting for CAS’ sentence to rehabilitate his honor and reputation, Stanley Gaston writes.
