Florence Duperval Guillaume signed contract with person dead over 5 Months

Let me start by saying this is not the case of a dead person transformed into a Haitian Zombi although many would think this is possible. Florence Duperval Guillaume who was Haiti Minister of Public Health under the Martelly government had managed to do that. She actually signed one of these lucrative contracts with funds from PetroCaribe with someone who as pronounced dead for over five months earlier and buried. According to Senator Youri Latortue, the person in question died in April; however both his name and signature appeared at the end of a contract along with Minister Florence Duperval Guillaume in September of that same year. Senator Cantave who worked in the Ministry at the time was present at the funeral.


When approached, the only excuse Florence Duperval Guillaume could come up with is that she did not know the person was dead.

What do you think?
