Police chief Michael Angelo Gideon is working on Inspector Gabriel Faveur Desir's case, who has been identified as being close to gang leader Arnel Joseph.
The spokesman of the General Inspectorate of the National Police of Haiti (IGPNH), the divisional commissioner Jean-Claude Benjamin, said Friday, May 10, 2019, that the police institution recommends the dismissal of Inspector Gabriel Faveur Desire.
Police investigators proved that the police inspector used to contact the gang leader of God's village. On many occasions, operations aimed at capturing Mr. Joseph had failed. The Caid was informed in time of the deployment of the police.
The file has already been entrusted to an examining judge. Mr. Faveur and several other personalities were identified by a report of a parliamentary commission as maintaining close relations with the leader of the most wanted gang of Haiti.
This is the first officer prosecuted for complicity with gang leader Arnel Joseph.
The Senate commission had obtained telephone records of several people including parliamentarians and businessmen who are in regular contact with Mr. Arnel refugee in his hometown of Marchand Dessalines.
The administrative investigation by the Inspectorate General confirmed Mr. Desir's guilt. The judicial investigation will lead to a trial and a verdict.
