The seizure of all Senator Felix Bautista’s http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A9lix_Bautista assets, in the Dominican Republic, and ongoing legal action, is the earthquake that will create a devastating Tsunami – sweeping towards the National Palace – and beyond. Presidents Rene Preval and Michel Martelly, bridged by Martelly’s cousin Max Bellerive, and accompanied by Central Bank Governor, Charles Castel, and ex-CNE chief Jude Celestin will be swept up in the $350,000,000 crime that saw illegal contracts signed by Prime Minister Bellerive, without any legal authority.
Castel should remember what happened to Aristide’s bank chief, Venel Joseph, when evidence started to leak out concerning Aristide’s crimes.
He was murdered.
$33,000,000 was said to have been skimmed before the balance of these illegal contracts, that were never fulfilled was divided between a number of people
One must remember that the recently elected Michel Martelly was – in reality – flat broke, at the time. In mid-campaign his brother-in-law Kiko stepped in to save the day with a check for $100,000. The balance of the campaign was funded by Laurent Lamothe.
With this in mind, the $2,200,000 check from Bautista must have been very attractive to the recent musical performer, who travelled back and forth, to the DR, in one of three 350B2 Aerospatiale helicopters supplied by Bautista.
The Dominican registration number of one used extensively by President was H-1837. It was red and landed, along with the others, in the Dominican Embassy yard behind the Oasis Hotel.
Serial numbers of the 3 are 3905, 1928, and 2711.
I can remember the humiliated Michel crying on TV when confronted with the facts. Time, and more millions, have removed the naïve integrity originally projected.
Max Bellerive serves two Gods. He has long been an operative for the Dominican Intelligence apparatus. He entrapped President Martelly in a poisonous scheme that could well be the end of this regime.
And there are growing rumors that the PSUGO funds will erupt to create another scandal.
How long will Martelly and Sophia survive?
