Former Haitian president, Ertha Pascal Trouillot, denounces Jean-Bertrand Aristide for Conspiracy

During an interview with Valery Numa at Radio Vision 2000 this week, former Haitian president, Ertha Pascal Trouillot, was showed little reserve. She managed to give us some important facts during her government.


She was very hard on another former Haitian president. Ertha denounced a conspiracy created by former President Jean Bertrand Aristide and the Lavalas group in the objective of murdering her.

She went into some details on the Coup D'etat orchestrated by the late Roger Lafontant one January 6, 1991.

Ertha Pascal Trouillot also blamed Jean Bertrand Aristide for not taking the opportunity he had at the time to reconcile the nation with itself and at the same time bring Haiti on the path of development.

Ms. Trouillot took full credit for being the first Haitian president to conduct a free election. She would like for Aristide to come out and tell the nation about her innocence in regard to the Coup D'etat by Roger Lafontant one January 6, 1991.

Ertha Pascal-Trouillot was chief justice in Haiti when she became Haïti's first female president on March 13, 1990. She had for mission to organize election and coordinate the transition to democracy in Haiti following the overthrew of the government of Prosper Avril.

She was responsible for organizing the first truly free elections in Haiti on December 16, 1990 in which Jean Bertrand Aristide won with 67% of the vote.

On 6 January 1991, a coup d'Etat organized by pro- duvalier group took over. Roger Lafontant, a Tonton Macoute leader under Duvalier, seized the power and declared himself president.

With large manifestation on the streets by Aristide supporters, the Haitian army crushed the Coup attempt.

Upon the installation of Jean-Bertrand Aristide as president, he had Ertha Pascal-Trouillot arrested under charges of complicity in the January attempted coup d'état.
