In this interview (in Haitian Creole), a native daughter of Lascahobas, Haiti, courageously describes several crimes committed by Guy Philippe and his paramilitary henchmen against unarmed Haitian women, men and children between 2002 and 2004.
Philippe went on a rampage, armed, trained and protected by the CIA and the government of neighbouring Dominican Republic, on a mission to overthrow Haiti’s legitimate democratically-elected goverment, led by President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
No one has ever faced trial for the crimes described by this witness.
Neither Philippe, nor his powerful criminal sponsors within Haiti, the U.S., Canada or Europe.
