On my return to Haiti by Jean-Bertrand Aristide (The Guardian)

Haiti’s devastating earthquake in January last year destroyed up to 5,000 schools and 80% of the country’s already weak university infrastructure. The primary school in Port-au-Prince that I attended as a small boy collapsed with more than 200 students inside. The weight of the state nursing school killed 150 future nurses. The state medical school was levelled. The exact number of students, teachers, professors, librarians, researchers, academics and administrators lost during those 65 seconds that irrevocably changed Haiti will never be known. But what we do know is that it cannot end there.

Haiti to issue ex-president Aristide with passport (BBC)

“The Haitian government says it is ready to issue former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide with a passport, opening the way for his possible return.

Mr Aristide was ousted seven years ago, and has been living in exile.

The news comes at a critical time, with the final results of the disputed first round of the presidential election due on Wednesday.

He would be the second ousted president to return, after the surprise arrival two weeks ago of Jean-Claude Duvalier.”

U.S. revokes visas to pressure Haiti on election as candidate warns of more protests (CP)

“PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The U.S. State Department said Friday it revoked the visas of about a dozen Haitian officials, increasing pressure on the government to drop its favoured candidate from the presidential runoff in favour of a popular contender who is warning of renewed protests if he is not on the ballot.

Revoking visas that let prominent Haitians enter the United States is the latest step in an escalating effort to persuade Haiti’s government to accept international monitors’ finding that Michel Martelly rightfully belongs on the second-round ballot

Martelly has adopted a combative stance and urged his supporters to take to the streets peacefully if the electoral council does not allow him to run against top vote-getter Mirlande Manigat in the runoff, in place of Jude Celestin. Demonstrations in December shut down all Haiti’s major cities for days, hampering earthquake reconstruction and efforts to halt a cholera outbreak that has killed nearly 4,000 people.”

U.S. resumes deportations to quake-ravaged Haiti (Reuters)

“Barbara Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said 27 Haitian nationals with criminal records in the United States had been returned to their homeland.  They were the first of about 700 Haitians classified as “criminal aliens” who have been targeted for removal to the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country this year, Gonzalez said in an email response to Reuters.  “These are the first removals since they were suspended last year,” Gonzalez said, confirming the end of a moratorium on such deportations declared immediately after the January 12, 2010 quake.  “All of those removed were men, who had been previously convicted of a crime in the U.S.,” she said.”

Florida – Repatriations to Haiti Resume (NYT)

“Immigrant advocates say political unrest and cholera in Haiti make it inhumane to deport people there. But the United States announced last month that it would resume deporting those convicted of violent crimes who had served their time. Marleine Bastien, executive director of Haitian Women of Miami, called the deportations “inhumane and very insensitive.” The man acquitted in the Sears Tower case, Lyglenson Lemorin, was among a group sent back to Haiti on Thursday, his lawyer said. Officials say he remained a security threat.”

US deports first Haitians since earthquake (AP)

“Cheryl Little, executive director of the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, a nonprofit law firm, said the Haitian deportees were being sent back to a “death trap.”  “Why is it so urgent for the U.S. to deport Haitians when Haiti remains in ruin?” she said.  According to the firm, deportees sent to Haiti who have a criminal history are routinely held in inhumane jail conditions, not fed or provided medical care.  “Whether or not they have served a criminal sentence, no Haitian should be sent to a cholera-infested jail where they risk death,” the organization said in a statement.”

Pou ki sa Duvalier te retounen ann Ayiti?  Li bezwen lajan.     Why did Duvalier return to Haiti?  He needs money.

Jodi a, kèk jounalis te fè konnen li ta sanble  Duvalier te tounen ann Ayiti paske li gen bezwen lajan.  Kwak li gen si milyon dola nan yon bank Swis, Otorite nan peyi Laswis pa vle ba li lajan sa a toutotan lajistis ayisyen pa deklare Duvalier se pa yon kriminèl.  Kon sa,  li ta sanble Duvalier retounen nan Ayiti ak lespwa Lajistis ayisyen p ap kondane li, epi pran lajan li gen k ap dòmi nan bank Swis lan.

Several journalists are reporting today that Duvalier returned to Haiti because he needs money.  Though he currently has six million dollars in a Swiss bank, Swiss officials will not release the money to him unless it is clear he is not considered a criminal in Haiti.  Therefore, he may have returned to Haiti hoping to clear his name and gain access to his Swiss accounts.

Some see cash a motivation in Duvalier’s Return (NYT)

“Though Mr. Duvalier has long been accused of looting $300 million from Haiti before fleeing nearly 25 years ago, his lawyers and friends have said that much of his money was squandered on a lavish lifestyle of jewelry, chateaus, fancy cars and a very expensive divorce from his ex-wife.

Just this week, one of Mr. Duvalier’s lawyers said that when his client was hauled before a Haitian court and asked how he supported himself, Mr. Duvalier responded: “With the help of friends.”

But about $6 million still sits frozen in an account in Switzerland, and Mr. Duvalier has publicly vowed to make every effort to get it. Haitian officials, human rights advocates and political analysts believe that Mr. Duvalier came back to the country last weekend for the sole purpose of making an end run around a new law that will make it harder for him to do that.”
