Dr. Schiller Alexandre, son of Boniface Alexandre attempted kidnapping

An abduction-in-progress at the home of Dr. Schiller Alexandre was aborted by the intervention of Petion-Ville police. Dr. Alexandre, whose father was ex-President Boniface Alexandre, was found by officers tied up and gagged. Former Member of Parliament, Eliphète Noel, accompanying Schiller, sustained blunt-force trauma and a machete-inflicted wound to his shoulder.


Officers apprehended two suspects at the scene, Véner Oderson and Pierre-Louis. Third assailant, Peter Féguen, remains at large. The near-abduction, reason for the home invasion, happened on the evening of May 11th in Vivy Mitchell, a neighborhood in Port-au-Prince.

Accomplice Andy Campion, a security guard, provided access to Dr. Alexandre's home after he had left for the day. The trio of kidnappers hung out, anticipating Dr. Alexandre's appearance at any time. He arrived with Estère ex-deputy Noel to find the suspects, who overtook both men. Estère managed to call police from his cell phone before being brutally assaulted.

Abductions in Haiti have been on the rise since the 2010 earthquake, and are the most committed crime in places like Port-au-Prince. The roots of this violence go deep, right to the door of the government of Haiti (GOH). The GOH has failed its people. Mired in multiple scandals and violent, criminal acts of its public servants, it has subverted reconstruction efforts. Aid donors are withholding billions of dollars until the GOH implements a contract-bidding process and commits to transparency. Abductions and the violence attending them will continue to rage until the GOH honors its commitments to the Haitian community.
