Haitian citizen Roger Richard Boncy was charged with one count of conspiracy for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the Travel Act. Roger Richard Boncy holds dual U.S. and Haitian citizenship and is currently residing in Madrid. According to Miami Herald, he has been charged in a scheme to bribe Haitian government officials over the construction of an $84 million port in Mȏle St. Nicolas.
The project consisted of construction of multiple cement factories, shipping-vessel recycling station, international transshipment station with numerous slips for shipping vessels, a power plant, a petroleum depot and tourist facilities.
On the site where, in 1492, Christopher Columbus landed, a new frontier of strategic development will take place in a plan mapped out by the IBI-DAA group for the Nord-Ouest department's Môle-Saint-Nicolas.
The town, home to just over 4,000 people will benefit from the plan, set out earlier in November by the group's Vice-President, Rene Hubert, to Mr. Wilson Laleau, Minister of Economy and Finance, as well as deputies, senior officials and senators. Technological progress has been steadily trickling into the area, with them having received cellular phone capability six years ago when Digicel erected a network tower in the area. Môle-Saint-Nicolas is also one of the only places in the country where the roads are fit for sturdy vehicles.
This statement is so true. Haiti is really too rich to be poor, based on its geographic location and resources. I am going to take Mole Saint-Nicolas as an example.
Earlier this week, a draft Strategic Development Plan of Mole Saint-Nicolas was presented to the government. The development is focused on four major areas: the development of maritime corridor, the promotion of Haiti history and tourism, development of alternative energy production and the exploitation of natural resources.
According to the developers, Mole Saint-Nicolas is located in the best possible location to take advantage of the channel of the wind and the depth of its coastal waters. The development of wind and solar renewable energy is a big potential.
