The Haitian government is calling for “appropriate investigations” into social media websites with fake accounts of Prime Minister Dr. Jack Guy Lafontant and the President of the Superior Council of the National Police (CSPN).

“The creation of false accounts on social networks, using names and photos of people to circulate malicious messages, is a transnational crime,” according to a statement issued by the Office of the Prime Minister.

It said that the posts on social media contain the “full name, as well as photographs of the archives of the Prime Minister, Dr. Jack Guy Lafontant, also of the President of the Superior Council of the National Police (CSPN)”.

Prime Minister Lafontant has called on the technical and competent authorities “to carry out appropriate investigations to identify counterfeiters and to deal with them with the utmost rigor”.

He reminded users that his official account on the social media, including Facebook, “is doubly authenticated by the username “@jglafontant”, as well as by his name Jack Guy Lafontant checked-by a “V” of blue colour”.
