Rector Fritz Deshommes “[…] Salute the memory of this fervent defender of the Haitian National Project and of this eminent professor who was able to transmit to several generations of students his civic flame and his living faith in the regeneration of the common homeland.
He offers his heartfelt condolences to his family, to the entire UEH community, in particular his former colleagues and students from the Faculty of Human Sciences and the École Normale Supérieure, his colleagues of Center for Economic and Social Research and Training for Development (CRESFED) and the magazine ‘Rencontre’, to his combat comrades and to all his friends.”
