Edwin Florexil, Innocent Joseph, Roodiny Jean Baptiste, Abler Roudy Lalane, Jean Chenet Lucien, Great Marie Lydie, Jean Rebel Dorcena, Jude Jean Pierre and Frantz Toyo.

In the past, disarmament and regularization (reintegration) had only regularized 38,000 weapons in the hands of honest citizens, barely 15% of the country's illegal weapons in circulation.

The mission of this Commission is therefore difficult and the results uncertain...
