Evans Paul using bluff as tool against Dominican Government

Faced with massive influx of Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent being deported from the Dominican Republic to Haiti, Haitian Prime Minister Evans Paul put the Dominican Government on guard against the type of people that they are sending to Haiti. He stated that the Haitian government will welcome the Haitians but will not admit any non Haitians into the country. Specifically, anyone not born in Haiti will not be admitted into the country, that is according to Mr. Evans Paul.

I consider such a statement by the Haiti Prime Minister as pure bluff. It is an attempt by Mr. Paul deceive us pretending to in case that the Dominican Government makes any attempt to send someone who was born in the Dominican Republic with Haitian root back to Haiti, they will be faced with corresponding action from the Haitian government.

National Security Agency secretly intercepting Aristide's phone calls, Clinton White House

Recently, a long restricted November 1994 file from the office of Bill Clinton at White House reveals that the National Security Agency (NSA) had secretly intercepted former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's phone calls. The NSA is a U.S. intelligence agency responsible for global monitoring, collection, decoding, translation and analysis of information and facts for foreign intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. Ira J. Kurzban, a Miami based American civil rights and immigration lawyer, has commented that such an act of interception is in contravention of the U.N. Charter and international law; it offends the principle of peaceful cooperation among states. He is of opinion that the government did never change its conduct since the 1994 incidence.

Under house arrest, Jean Bertrand Aristide to be visited by Haiti opposition leaders

From exile to house arrest, Jean Bertrand Aristide just can't catch a break in Haiti. Following his inclusion on a list of people ordered not to leave the country by investigative judge, Lamarre Belizaire, Aristide has now been put under house arrest, and his list of visitors must be mandated by the presiding judge.

The embattled former leader was quickly reassured, after his current status was made public, he would receive moral support from members of the opposition,who, along with a group of senators, are against the El Rancho accord. The group reportedly promised to visit the twice-deposed former leader despite a ruling by the judge that all visitors needed to seek approval to see the accused. One opposition senator, Sen. Jean Baptiste Bien-Aime, has said that, despite Judge Belizaire's action, under Haitian law, there is no such thing as house arrest.

Godson Orelus made commitment to arrest Jean-Bertrand Aristide

Investigative Judge Belizaire, frustrated in his attempts to indict ex-President Aristide on corruption charges from his time in office, has called Chief of Police Orelus to Belizaire's office, asking why Orelus has not executed an arrest warrant on Aristide. Belizaire does not have a good answer why he has failed to arrest Aristide, which leads to the conclusion Orelus's department is being defiant. But an officer of the Haitian National Police (HNP) reports Orelus has sworn to Belizaire he will ensure the arrest warrant is served on Aristide. The officer has said the arrest would occur soon since Orelus cannot go against the orders of Belizaire to arrest Aristide. To save face the informant said specifics were being hashed out to get the warrant executed.

Lamarre Belizaire wants Jean Bertrand Aristide before him by force if necessary

Controversial judge, Lamarre Bélizaire, continues to throttle forward with his investigation into the Aristide Administration, despite the recent alleged threat to his life following the report of gunshots near his home. Bélizaire has now issued a warrant for the arrest of the former Haitian president.

Bélizaire's determination to complete the investigation has given rise to accusations of bias from the counsel of Jean Bertrand Aristide, who filed a motion to have the judge removed from the case on those grounds. However, in a recent interview with Haitian-Caribbean News Network (HCNN), the judge told the press that, in light of the motion filed against former President Aristide, he had not revoked the warrant.

Arrest Warrant issued to Jean Bertrand Aristide accused for corruption

Judge Lamarre Belizaire is attempting to indict ex-president, Jean Bertrand Aristide, on charges of corruption, money laundering, embezzling funds, and other assorted criminal acts. The charges are related to the operation of Aristide's non-profit, Aristide for Democracy Foundation. When the media tried to contact Belizaire regarding the case he was unavailable, his office citing "legal and ethical reasons" for remaining quiet.

Ever since 2004 when Aristide was forced into exile a UN Peacekeeping Force has been a presence in Haiti to quell outbreaks of violence between Aristide's party, Fanmi Lavalas, and opposing factions. Belizaire wants Aristide arrested for refusing to comply with a summons ordering him to attend a hearing in Belizaire's courtroom to answer to the corruption charges.

Forced Divorce between Michel Martelly and Laurent Lamothe

A forced divorce between President Michel Martelly and his Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe seems to be unavoidable. One of the propositions that is included in the report that will be made public tomorrow by Haiti advisory committee created by Michel Martelly is the resignation of the Prime Minister.

Although it doesn't guarantee that this action will resolve the crisis between the government and the opposition who have been getting some strength and success in organizing mass protest, at this point the government doesn't have too many options left before January 12, 2014.
