"The Ministry of Defense learned with stupefaction that in the evening of Saturday, March 31, 2018, three soldiers-technicians of the Corps of Military Genius, answering the names of Rodini Pierre Louis, Dave Basquin and Livens Dorvil, surrendered without order of mission nor regular permission to Anse-Rouge, municipality of Gros Morne, Department of Artibonite, to participate in the Easter festivities.

While the festivities are going on normally, a brawl of firing exchanges and launches of objects of all kinds would have broken out between fanatics of two rival DJs animating the evening. In reaction, the soldier-technicians would have used firearms.

At the same time as the prosecution of the Gonaives Court of First Instance launched the public action, an administrative investigation was carried out by the Ministry of Defense to shed light on this incident, particularly as regards to the origin of the weapons used.

Moreover, the Ministry of Defense strongly deplores and condemns all acts of indiscipline and unworthy behavior that do not fit with the new philosophy of the Military Institution.

The Ministry of Defense takes the opportunity to assure everyone that the competent authorities have been instructed to adopt the necessary corrective measures as quickly as possible.
