Haiti's troublemaker de facto chief prosecutor Gassant is forced to resign
By Yves A. Isidor, wehaitians.com executive editor

CAMBRIDGE, MA, Aug. 11 - Haiti's troublemaker government officials have usually managed to proudly affirm that they are incapable of making, at the most, one attempt that they will one day permit themselves to navigate into the world of civility.

One of them, of course, is Claudy Gassant, Haiti's jurisdictional prosecutor (the nation's capital of Port-au-Prince), not the chief prosecutor he always regurgitates to be, though most of the time unconvincingly, since he is far from being an eloquent speaker, has been engaged in series of fist fights, the vast majority of them at nightclubs, and the last always more violent than the previous one.

Mr. Gassant, whose nearly two years tenure is also marked by abuse of power and gross incompetence, was finally forced to resign his senior government position today, more than a week after he allegedly severely punched a municipal  police commander, Frantz Georges, at a party at Club Indigo, not far from the capital city of Port-au-Prince.
