PORT AU PRINCE – The Mayor of the coastal tourist town of Montrouis, Blaise Elysée, has called for the authorities to help put an end to a decades old land dispute that resulted in the death of one person on Monday.
Elysée has also denounced the violence as he confirmed the incident on Monday while urging the authorities to restore order in the commune.
The 60-year-old land dispute between two families has already caused the deaths of several people in the past, and Monday’s incident, sparked over the problem of territorial demarcation between the commune of Montrouis and that of Arcahaie, resulted in a new round of violence between residents of both communes.
Eyewitnesses said gunshots were fired and one of the major roads had been blocked and three vehicles, including one belonging to a senior police officer had been destroyed by fire. (CMC)
