President Rene Preval is – at this very moment – involved with a convoluted series of negotiations that he hopes will see him step down from power while retaining the hundreds of millions he has stolen from Haiti’s treasury. He is also requesting immunity for his wife Elizabeth Delatour, from prosecution for tax evasion in the United States.
The American agencies have evidence of his involvement in, among other things, Mireille Durocher-Bertin’s assassination in 1995, the cocaine traffic during his various terms in office, his torture of an American born American citizen in 1991, his part in the theft of $198,000,000 Petro Caraibe funds, for Goinaives reconstruction in 2008, money from the SOCABANK crime, plus a myriad of other instance on crime including the murder of Monica Pierre in the now infamous Port-de-Paix drug fiasco that involved just about everyone in the Haitian government, including Senator Lambert.
Why anyone would want to let Preval walk away, safely with his money, is beyond belief. Perhaps he has retained a dossier on money paid to Washington notables, past and present.
Washington is also aware of his direct involvement with the murder of Jean Dominique. Dominique’s wife was a close friend of Preval, a mistress at one time, and is considered – by Preval – as a future president. Montas was complicit in the cover-up following the assassination of her husband.
Look to see Preval depart within the next 21 days.
Be prepared for another of those complete failures, a Transitional Government with members pressed upon Haiti’s prostrate society by Washington.
