Uruaguayan Marines RAPE in Haiti

Johny Jean was raped, almost a year ago, by members of the Uruguayan MINUSTAH detachment in Port Salut. When this happened, Johny, and his family reported the crime to the National Police. He was examined by a team of foreign doctors who confirmed the attack. As expected, the MINUSTAH people carried out a full, intensive investigation, finding no truth to the story.

That would have been the end to this unfortunate situation except for one extraordinary event. Local boys were/are in the habit  of trading video music  cell-phone-to-cell-phone with the MINUSTAH soldiers. One young man, in Port Salut, was stunned to find he had downloaded a video from a local Uruguayan sailor showing Johny Jean’s rape by four Uruguayan Sailors. He could identify these peacekeepers.

The victim was his cousin!!

The video clip was aired on ABC and the world focused on this crime.

A team of top American trial attorneys, led by Ed Marger, Congressman Bob Barr and Mike Puglise flew into Haiti to represent Johny Jean. Marger had already contacted the Uruguayan government, in Montevideo. As a result of this,    President Mujica dispatched his Army Chief of Staff, General Borone, and the Navy judge advocate, to Haiti for meetings with Marger’s team.

President Mujica took the unprecedented step of writing a letter of apology to Predident Martelly, and the Haitian people, for the crime.

All that was required was negotiations for a settlement.

These were moving towards a positive outcome.

Unfortunately, some elements are greedy.

Marger had requested a settlement of $5,000,000 and some believed this propaganda to be what would be paid! . He was simply stating a figure to start the negotiations as the Uruguayans suggested $30,000.

Greed took over.

Fritz Dorziain, who had himself listed, as an avocat, with one ministry, jumped in – sometime in December/January  and managed to get the illiterates,   Johny Jean, and his family members,  to sign a Mandat, giving  Dorziair power of attorney to do  what  had already been completed and done.

No one has seen this Mandat/Power of Attorney!

It  probably gave him the right to retain attorneys when Johny already possessed top level American and Haitian legal representation. It also gave him the authority to do all other things, that had already been accomplished. But, most importantly, it probably gave him complete and total control over Johny Jean and the millions of $$ Dorziair thinks will be paid on May 10th!!

Dorziair’s interference was a gift of unbelievable value for the Uruguayans,  who – before  Dorziain’s appearance- were faced with a powerful American negotiating team. Now they had some inexperienced Haitian who said he was a lawyer (when he is nothing but the operator of a small guest house)   trying to take over the case.

At one point he tried to have the Americans fired, and they were working on their own money and time!! The Marger team had invested a small fortune, plus their reputations, in the battle for Johny Jean, and they were winning!

Now Fritz Dorziair, guest house operator from Port Salut, muddied the waters.

Divide and conquer.

Cynics have suggested that Dorziair has done this for Uruguay,  either out of complete and total stupidity, or because he was paid. Of course it could be the mixture of both.  His meddling has seen Uruguay go from an apologetic stand,  wanting to pay compensation –  to one in which they now  maintain their sailors are innocent and they should pay nothing.

There are several  problems. Johny Jean, and his family cannot read or write, and they were not given a copy of the Mandat they signed.

Fritz Dorziair promised to supply a copy…but never did!

As late as May 7, with a May 10 court appearance in Uruguay scheduled, they still hadn’t received a copy of the Mandat, although they have made continued request.

In the United States at least one person would be facing  criminal charges for what has transpired, and what continues.

At an earlier moment, Parliament gave 400,000 gourdes to Fritz Doziair, for Johny Jean. The guy transmitting this cash – equivalent of $10,000 American, was Senator Beauplan. He took $2000 and passed $8000 on to Dorziair…who kept the rest. Johny Jean did not get a single gourde.

Dorziair is supposedly working for Johny’s best interests. But there are indications that he has made a deal with the Uruguayan/MINUSTAH people to sell the case.

Dorziair has done everything in his power to have the powerful American attorneys removed from the case, so he can control it.  This would be funny, if it wasn’t to bizarre and dangerous for the fair outcome already worked out by Ed Marger, and his team.

Dorziair  managed to coordinate things so that Johny Jean would be flown into Montevideo May 10, at 9:30 A.M. for a 2 P.M. court appearance at which only two lawyers (Dorziair and a Haitian) would be admitted. The Americans, who arrived in Uruguay on the 5th, would not be admitted.

There was absolutely no arrangement for an English translation!! In other words, Dorziair’s interference had created a situation in which the American team would be neutralized when it arrived in Montevideo.

The timing was horrific. Imagine Johny Jean, who has never been out of the country, or on an aircraft, arriving in Montevideo at 9:30 A.M. – if the aircraft wasn’t late …and on most occasions it is late… And then be  expected to have any sort of mental balance for a court appearance 4  hours after arriving?!!

No time for a briefing by lawyers with his interests at heart.

No preparation for the cross-examination that must follow!!

This is a carefully manufactured formula for disaster.

Marger managed to have Johny Jean brought to Uruguay at an earlier date, allowing some time for Johny to acclimatize, but nothing can, or will, undo the damage done by Fritz Dorziair!!

The May 10 hearing is simply a tribunal that will collect evidence, to see if a crime was committed.

There will be no bag of cash carried away from the May 10 appearance, as Dorziair has promised people in Haiti.  Some suggest he has used the promise of a huge treasure, to obtain funds from other greedy Haitians, wanting to share in the pot of gold!

Before  Dorziair’s betrayal of trust, there was every indication that the judge would rule that sufficient evidence existed for the trial to convene. Now, we must have strong expectations for the judge to rule that no crime occurred and the sailors will be freed.

Dorziair, the operator of a small guest house in Port Salut, could not possibly know what was happening in the Marger negotiations through the embassies of Uruguay in Washington and New York, or via his contacts with the United Nations, General Borone and the Naval Judge Advocate in Uruguay. Or with Marger’s contacts within the American government, contact  capable of bringing pressure to bear on Uruguayan authorities.

Dorziair’s interference has created a situation in which Johny Jean may well  lose but, more importantly, the people of Haiti will lose. Dorziair has created a situation in which the UN/MINUSTAH immunity/impunity will be fortified and their lack of respect, and abuse of Haitians, and the Nation will continue.

I am sorry Johny Jean.

Drop your pants and bend over.

Here it comes again!!!

  1. Where does Haiti find guys like this?

    Dorziair sounds like material for a Haitian Depute or Senator…perhaps the new Martelly cabinet!

  2. And the media was at our airport to see Johny Jean off to Uruguay but Fritz Dorziair allowed MINUSTA Uruguayan soldier the honor of conveying them to the airfield. He should have taken a Tap Tap instead of organizing this outrage.

    How can one have a rapists brothers deliver the victim to the aircraft for transportation to the tribunal in Montevideo.

    Fritz seems to actually be on the wrong side of this game.

    Perhaps Dorziair has already profited from this game before the tribunal.

  3. Dorziair will bring the millions home as he made promise to do last week. He has control now and succeeds well. He has victory.

  4. Norway had Quisling.
    Haiti has Dorziair.
    Quisling was superior.

  5. Arrest Dorziair for theft of 400,000 Johny Jean money.

    Haitian journalists must reveal and report.

    No impunity for Zinglendo Dorziair

  6. Leave the thinking to the Blan.Let Fritz Dorzian serve cafe and hold doors open.

  7. Perhaps Uruguay soldat will make lady out of Fritz Dorziain if not she not already one. Nice plump Derrière.

  8. Fritz Dorziair tried to make deal with Ambassador Romeo of Uruguay last weekend. Tried to acquire Marger documentation for Uruguay. This Johny’s family tells me as they were in rendezvous with Ambassador with Dorziair.

    Dorziar trying to sell Johny and Haiti to Uruguayans.

    How can Maitre Gervais Charles tolerate these outrages?

  9. What is going on?

    I was at aeroport when Fritz Dorziair and Johny John arrived, delivered by MINUSTAH.

    How can you attack MINUSTAH and then be driven to aircraft by them?

    Dorziair obviously on MINUSTAH/Uruguay team, not Johny Jean Haiti team.

    Now he sits in Montevideo lux, paid by Haiti, as he sell our interests.

    He should be jailed for stealing the 400,000 gourdes that belongs to Johny Jean.

  10. Where is our Justice.
    How can criminal like Dorziair get Notaire acceptance of document from non-literacy peoples?That is how Notaires steal our lifes.
    Who was Notaire?
    Dorziair and Notaire should face Justice.

  11. We must recall that Johny Jean and his faily, plus those boys who found the video, were threated by MINUSTAH Uruguayan soldat in Port Salut.Their lifes have been destroyed.Someone must pay the receipt.
    The $10,000 Dorziair stole would assist.

  12. I was in the Port Salut area, with a mission last year, and was amazed to see the relaxed holiday life of the Uruguayan MINUSTAH troops. They were seen wandering around in shorts, playing on the beach.

    Those Haitian, who worked with us, told of the Uruguayan navy’s involvement with the cocaine traffic. One time they had a helicopter that flew out sea to pick up loads from boats offshore.

    And then the Uruguayan navy people were said to use their UN boats to bring cocaine in from the offshore smuggling boats.

    Some Haitians, involved with the cocaine business, complained that the Uruguayans were making it impossible to remain in the business.

    The Uruguayan MINUSTAH people in Port Salut corrupted everyone with extra food and money. Like other MINUSTAH units, such as the Sri Lankans and Pakistanis were known for their child molesting and mistreatment of young girls.

    The United Nations sets a very bad example for the Third World.

    103 Sri Lankins were sent home after a child-molesting scandal. They were greeted like heroes when they arrived home.

    A couple of Pakistanis were recently convicted, in Haiti, for raping a boy in Gonaives. They will probably be released, and promoted, when they get back to Pakistan.

    After the Johny Jean tape emerged, Uruguay’s president sent a personal letter of apology to Haiti. Now, his courts will find there was no crime and the rapists will go free.

    That is the Justice offered Haitians at the hands of MINUSTAH.

    Haiti does not need a force of occupation – such as MINUSTAH. Time for the organized crime group – MINUSTAH – to go home.

    Haiti and Haitians can look after themselves, without the hypocritical foreigners from the United Nations.

  13. Right on, Pastor John!

    You will remember, I was working with a mission in Leogane, after the 2010 earthquakes. When it happened, Haitians went to the MINUSTAH camp for help and were chased away with gunfire.

    When I visited you in Port Salut there was no need for MINUSTAH in this peaceful place. Just a bunch of bums in camouflage uniforms corrupting the young people.

    The Uruguayan MINUSTAH people were a disgrace.

    The UN should send us some heavy equipment, and operators, to do some practical work, instead of a bunch of assault-rifle carrying tourists who spoil the entire society.

    Port Salut should be the focus of tourism, not MINUSTAH molestation.

    Unfortunately, the Fritz Dorziair is typical of the egocentric Haitian guys who believe they are smarter, and more capable that they prove to be. He should be a member of the government.

    You will remember that you put some of my group in his guest house, a very small nice place on the beach. He was a jerk when I met him and he cannot have changed much.

  14. How can we expect the world to respect us when we do not respect ourselves.Fritz Dorziair is typical of the Haitian selfish mentality.Until someone crushes someone like Fritz Dorziair there will be no hope for our future.

  15. What is going on? It is so obvious why Haiti is so corrupted. For money anything impossible becomes possible. Does Johny have any family members who could be appointed as mandate. If I am not mistaken Johny is an adult. He does not need a mandate. Johny could have taken a stand on his own especially having some bulldogs attorneys. Oops I forget he is illeterate. I feel for you brother. You have been screwed

  16. Dorziair should be arrested on arrival from Uruguay. The family must be greedy to believe Dorziair’s tales so they must to also be blamed for disasters.
    They will soon be forgotten. Perhaps someone will recall Dorziair and visit him for conversation.

  17. It is my understanding that Foreign Affairs Laurent Lamothe was involved with this case.

    What is his opinion of Fritz Dorziair and the embarrassment for Haiti?

  18. why why why, again I hate the shit that goes on with my fellow countrymen,they just dont give ashit,come on,dont we have anyone in authority that can do something for us in situation like this.It makes me hate my own people,were are all these so called politicians and intellelects that we suppose to have,were are the big people,the ones that suppose to be their for us,please someone help this guy,dont let it go down like this.I am so tired of my people just livin for themselves not caring or doing anything for their brothers.I have a saying,their is no “Hell after Haiti

  19. The corruption and lack of concern for the people is why Haiti has the reputation of greed and corruption.

  20. I personally know Fritz Dorziar, first of all, who wanted to become a priest, was living in Canada, finally came in Haiti, met that girl from les Cayes and married her. Fritz worked with Aristide. and Living in an expensive area that he can barely afford…Recently he was facing FINANCIAL problem, even his wife wanted to dumb him cause she wasn’t agree with the idea of his guest house ” AU BEAU LAMBI” in Port Salut. He could barely put gaz in his car…He had to rent a room in his house to a foreigner in order to survive with his wife and pay the rent of that big house close to Montagne Noir in Petion-Ville. I wouldn’t be surprise that he’d sell out Johny Jean case in order to get some money to finish his AU BEAU LAMBI guest house. This guy is a bastard. This could have happened to our brother, cousin, nephew, godson…etc…He has to pay for what he has done…MY heart goes to Jonhy Jean family, may God help them to have JUSTICE!!
