Two high officials of the Martelly government are in front of Danton Leger. One of them is not telling the truth about PetroCaribe fund. Is it former Minister of Economy and Finance, Wilson Laleau or General Manager of the Office of Monetization of Development Aid Programs (BMPAD), Eustache Saint-Lot? However Government Commissioned will know soon who is lying.
Eustache Saint-Lot is currently being kept at a Police station under the directorate of Public Procecutor until Wilson Laleau returns from a trip abroad. Danton Leger has plan to hear the two men in the same place and at the same time because they contradict each other at separate hearing.

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.

A summons was issued for the senatorial candidate and DEA fugitive Guy Philippe to appear before the Court today (Tuesday, May 24, 2016). However, his attorney, Reynold Georges, said his client needs 15 days to prepare his defense before showing.
Guy Philippe made several declarations in the press recently of his intention to go into rebellion and overthrow President Jocelerme Privert if he did not resign on Saturday, May 14, 2016. This was before the attack in early Monday morning, May 16, 2016 on the Police Station in Cayes.
Problem will never end. The former rebel leader Guy Philippe has been summoned to appear in front of the Parquet of Jeremie tomorrow, May 24, 2016, to answer to the accusations related to the attackers on the police station in the town of Les Cayes. The summon came from the government commissioner to the Court of first instance, Roosevelt Zamor.

He is a candidate for the Senate of Grande Anse, not yet an official entitled to any immunity.
Time will tell!
All of a sudden, and without any explanation, Mr. Mosler George resigned as Executive Director of the Provisional Electoral Council. This is quite a surprise. We have no one willing to comment on this. Mosler George played a key role in the elections of August 8 and October 25, 2015. He did not earn the trust of too many people as he was accused for having some responsibilities regarding the last election.

In Haiti, you never know when you might get into trouble. This is the case in the city of Arcahaie on May 18, 2016 for the celebration of our Haitian Flag. Furing the mass celebration, Father Julien who wanted to promote Plantain which is a local product stated that: "N'ap Manje banann nan sou tout form, Bouyi, Peze, Papita". This statement came out not asintended but appeared to be in support of the PHTK candidate Jovenel Moise who has identified himself as the Plaintain Man, "Neg Banann Nan"
Do you think this was a innocent statement from Father Julien or do you feel it was intentional to support PHTK candidate Jovenel Moise?
