Jean-Charles Moïse Reported Misuse of 50 Million

Jean-Charles Moïse, the presidential candidate of the "Pitit Desalin" platform has been indexed by the Superior Court of Auditors on charges of misuse of 50 million HTG (at present rate around US$1.25 million) of public fund earmarked for the second largest Haitian city Cap-Haitien. In December 2007, he was the recipient of "cost of reception" fees" amounting to 36, 75,000 HTG. Furthermore, this former Mayor of Milot and Senator from the North had collected millions between 2006 and 2011 as an adviser to former President Rene Preval. His candidacy for the Presidential post is presently running at a risk of disqualification. During the last week of June, he had reported pressure from a group of opposition political parties to deviate him from the electoral race. Some civil society and human rights organizations had called the CEP not to surrender under pressure.


On July 11th, a false statement of the CEP was published on the social networks, announcing that the presidential candidate Jean Charles Moise, of the Platform Pititt Dessalines has been removed from the list because he had submitted fraudulent documents. Moise accused some traditional leaders close to the international community, the government in power and a part of the economic elite's involvement in spreading these rumors. When he was the Mayor of Milo, on June 14, 2004, at around 4:00 am in the morning, a contingent of French soldiers along with some U.N. (blue helmet) soldiers invaded his house and arrested his wife in his absence, leaving his small underage children without a mother. However, Moïse is not alone. Some other heavyweight presidential candidates like Ex-Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, Verite candidate, Jacky Lumarque and Konbit Nasyonal candidate Edwin Zenny were also expelled from run on charges of manipulation. This expulsion of Moïse by the CEP appears to look like an attempt to be fair and consistent.
