Haiti Parliament Building Destruction

The ceremony for laying the first stone of the Haitian Parliament Building destroyed in the 2010 earthquake was attended by then Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe in the presence of other Haitian government officials and diplomats. It is a more than 3-year old news story (dated January 3, 2013). A Dominican firm 'Constructora Hadom' was awarded a contract valuing $33.7 million to reconstruct it and as per Prime Minister Lamothe's statement, "it would provide the country with modern public buildings to strengthen republican institutions and to improve the image of the state." Later, it was learned that, then President Martelly received a kick-back of $2.6 million from a Dominican Senator named Félix Ramon Bautista for awarding three separate government contracts valuing $343.32 million to three different companies belonging to Bautista. Bautista owns a 98% stake in Constructora Hadom. A recent spot investigation made by UCLPB concludes that it was a total waste of money as nothing has been done for the amount disbursed so far.
