Haiti – FLASH : Revocation of all identifiers of the National Intelligence Service
The Ministry of the Interior and Territorial Collectivities notes that ill-intentioned individuals, without title or status, use national effigies and the forged signature of Minister Day to pass themselves off as people with links to the National Intelligence Service (SIN). In addition, these individuals use these fake ID cards, which they say come from the Ministry, to perpetrate wrongdoing.
The Ministry denounces and condemns with the utmost rigor these offenses made on purpose and the amalgamations they are capable of generating in a strategy to destabilize the political and security climate in Haiti.
Also, Minister Day and his Director General Amos Zéphirin revoked, as of Thursday, April 22, 2021, all the cards of regular employees and SIN Agents. This measure is taken in the interest of ensuring the safety of the population in general and that of SIN staff in particular.
The Ministry will proceed gradually and after evaluation to replace the identification cards of SIN Agents, in consultation with the authorities involved alongside it, in the safety and security of the territory.
In the meantime, Minister Day urges the National Police of Haiti (PNH), in particular, to take all legal sanctions against all offenders and to continue to track down any troublemaker using false “badges” of the Institution.
