Jean-Bertrand Aristide to be questioned April 24, 2013 on John L. Dominique murder

This is no longer a rumor. According to, judge Yvickel Dabrezil who has been working on the case regarding the assassination of the CEO of Radio Haiti Inter, John Leopold Dominique and Jean Claude Louissaint has confirmed that to be a fact. The Lavalas Leader and former President of Haiti Jean-Bertrand Aristide has received an invitation to answer questions around the assassination on April 3rd, 2000 of John Leopold Dominique and Jean Claude Louissaint


President Jean-Bertrand Aristide will be present at the cabinet of instruction, Wednesday, April 24, for questioning in the case following the invitation that was delivered to his residence of Tabarre.

As you may remember, Jean Léopold Dominique was a Haïtian journalist who developed a reputation by speaking against the Duvalier regime. At the time Jean Léopold Dominique was one of the few radio hosts who communicated directly with the majority of the Haitian population by broadcasting in Kreyòl, the language spoken by 99% of the Haitian population. Dominique fled Haiti twice due to life due to threats on his life. He was assassinated on April 3, 2000.

Some lavalas supporters believe that calling former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide to testify on the assassination of Jean Léopold Dominique is purely political. According to some, the Lavalas government had no interest in the death of Jean Dominique and pointed out that Dominique was Lavalas supporter.
