In addition to that, the agreement will modernize the custom posts to check the recurring revenue losses on the border. It has been learnt that Mitrelli Group has some connection to Clinton Foundation because along with Eytan M. Stibbe Capital Fund and Luminar Finance, the company had provided a donation of $24,800,000 (in 2009) to Clinton Global Initiative in Adama, Angola. Some critics are of opinion that the donation has favored this $50 million contract in Haiti to HLSI through the Clinton's puppet Martelly administration.

Michel Martelly at UN, Haiti is one of the safest countries in the region

Continuing to try to complete the installation of a Haitian defense force, the nation's leader, President Michel Martelly, labeled Haiti as one of the region's safest nations recently at the 69th General Assembly of the United Nations. He, along with his second-in-command, Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe, spoke about the strides Haiti has made in regards to security, and that they would now see the withdrawal of the UN troops which have been a part of the country's fabric for years now.

Haiti's call for release cannot be viewed as premature. While the country has suffered from its share of political turmoil for decades, leading to unrest and the need for assistance from international sources, the past few years has seen the spreading of the country's wings in the training and formation of its own Defense Corps. According to the President, Haiti has already begun the process by training its corps, and it is now the time for the United Nations to fulfill their part with the rolling out of their MINUSTAH agents.

Haiti, One of 7 Countries You're Most Likely to Be Kidnapped

Haiti is a country where the chances of getting kidnapped on a holiday equal the chances of catching an on-time flight from a budget airline. The countries with highest kidnapping rates in the world are typically the vulnerable places visited by the defense contractors who provide products or services to a military or intelligence department of a government. Although the reported rate of kidnapping in Haiti came down to 162 in the year 2012 from 720 about mid 2000s, the figure is still threatening to allure tourists in Haiti.
