HAITI DRUG The Manzanares Drug case assigned to judge Berges O. Surpris.A FARCE

Judge Berges O. Surpris (Haitian investigative judge/juge d’instruction) was not accidentally named to the case of the Manzanares.  It is believed, by those who are familiar with the system, that he was assigned through special considerations made between various key players of the Haitian justice system; and their sponsors in the law practice (and in the Haitian private sector).


In continental law, the Dean of the court is the one who hand picks judges to be assigned to cases.  In this respect, the Dean of the Court (le doyen du tribunal civil de Port-au-Prince) Bernard Saint Vil, holds special powers.  To corrupt a judge, a suspect needs to first ensure that the Dean will appoint the judge of his choice to his or her case.  And then, can the corruptor cut a deal with the judge, as he is assured to get the one he or she wants assigned to his or her case. It always however appears that judges are  randomly assigned to cases; but it is not always so.


If the Dean assigns a very scrupulous judge, the suspect has no chance of making a deal with the judge so that he may be lenient.  This is why it is believed that judge Berges and Dean Saint Vil were involved with the process of diluting the investigation pertaining to the Manzanares vessel.


Not only do people close to the investigation believe that judge Berges and the Dean Saint Vil who are friends (it is well known in the tribunal of first instance in port au prince) were in touch with lawyers of various suspects in the matter, they further believe that the public prosecutor was unwillingly dragged into the question of the release of the crew of the vessel.


Although the Public prosecutor at the time, Comissaire Ocnam Dormeus, was likely convinced by them to allow for the release of the crew of the vessel, he does not seem to have remained complacent for long.  The premature release of the crew (around 10 crew members) before the investigation was over, only keeping in custody the captain and one crew member, made little sense.  Following this shocking decision, outside pressure is said to have been  exercised on Judge Berges so that he would not continue down that lax path and so that he would conduct a more  thorough investigation and  questioning of various suspects still being investigated.


Irrespective, at this point key leads were deemed to have been removed from the case.  it is said that those leads were not followed by the head of the BLTS (Haitian DEA) who reported that he did not want to carry the burden of being the one to issue arrest of influential people.  He is said to have stated that when the Minister of Justice told him to move full fledge forward with arrests, he conveniently pretended that he had misunderstood and transferred the file to the public prosecutor’s office instead.  Once the file got to the public prosecutor’s bureau, the head of BLTS no longer had any jurisdiction over the case.


It was later discovered that some BLTS members had a privileged relationship with the lawyers of parties concerned  in the investigation.  Once such lawyer is said to be Berto Vaneus who was aware of what was said during private questioning of suspects when this was supposed to have been done in the utmost of confidentiality.


This led the DEA to possibly assume that witnesses such as Gregory Georges  nicknamed Tiketan could eventually be in danger.  Local authorities  had to take into consideration such element.  Gregory Georges ( alias Tiketan  ) actually gave himself up to the police, because of an assassination attempt against him.  He felt safer in jail than outside.  But, it is said that his testimonies were manipulated to avoid condemnation of some suspects as the investigation evolved.


Security agents at Terminal Varreux who had shared in the drugs and even sold some on the local market, were also threatened.  One of them was executed and his death concealed by judge Leveque who –as a justice of peace- documented that death as a suicide/accident; and authorized the removal of the body.


Later on in the process, a deal was struck between the Mevs, and the family of the deceased man as orchestrated by Robert Monde who served as a go between.  The family of the murdered  man was granted work and a payment in order to remain quiet.  The killer still lives undisturbed in Cite Soleil. It is well known that the alleged killer was and is still  an armed guard working for Terminal Varreux under supervision of Allen Rozier.  He was never been bothered even after using one of the Mevs Terminal’s weapon to shoot the victim.
