Tande, 55% nan elev an Ayiti bwe alkol, 23% pran dwog

Elèv lekòl an Ayiti yo dekouvri ke dwòg se solisyon an pou anpil nan pwoblèm yo epi yo de pli zan pli repoze sou li. Dapre yon etid ki te fèt nan 2014, yon majorite nan timoun lekòl ap itilize dwòg.

Haitian drug trafficker Beaudouin Jacques' Ketant to be released

Drug Trafficker gets Sentence Reduction for aiding in prosecution of Haitian Government Officials

In a Miami court, a federal judge has agreed to the sentence reduction of Haitian drug trafficker, Beaudouin Jacques Ketant, from 27 to 13 years. The reduction will allow Ketant to be released soon. The sentence reduction was approved because the U.S. Attorney's Office reported Ketant assisted them in prosecuting Haitian government officials, involved one way or another in the drug trade.

Ketant went so far as to implicate former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide as operating as a drug lord. Ketant alleged Aristide managed the transporting of cocaine shipments along the drug corridor of Haiti. As a result of the frame-up Artistide was ousted by militant rebels. The U.S. ushered him out of the country on a government jet.

Haiti among major illicit drug-producing or drug-transit countries

United States President, Barack Obama, is mandated by the tenets of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act (FRAA) to furnish Congress with a list of those countries he believes are major players in the production of illicit drugs or the transit of drugs each year. This so-called "Blacklist" informs Congress of those countries which could pose a significant threat to the fight against drugs in the United States.

Making the list this year are 22 countries. Alphabetically, they are: Afghanistan, the Bahamas, Belize, Bolivia, Burma, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Laos, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela. Of the list, three countries were described as having "failed demonstrably", Bolivia, Burma, and Venezuela.

Haiti's inclusion on this list of 22 but not on the short list of three, though of concern, shows that the country is one of those which shows a level of cooperation with the U.S. where counter efforts to combat the trade of illegal drugs and narcotics is concerned. The list, it is said, does not reflect this factor, but rather, can show a country's commercial, geographic, and economic factors that permit the development of a sizeable drug trade, from production through to trafficking. Only when a country does not carry out its responsibilities under the agreements and conventions of international counternarcotics does it fail demonstrably and expose itself to sanctions and a damaged status with the U.S.

Drug trafficking is a serious issue in Haiti as the country has been a transit point for drug dealers and smugglers. Drug shipments from South America to the United States, Europe, Canada and Caribbean nations usually pass through Haiti and this is why the police force are always on alert.
