In Haiti A Call to Indict PM for Killing Moises Echo of UN Cholera, SG Guterres Silent Censor

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 14 – In Haiti, an earthquake hit and long after, nothing from the UN whose Sec-Gen Guterres was away on an undisclosed vacation.

Now, after Guterres presumptively junketed to Lisbon on his way to raise funds for the Taliban (UN staff tell Inner City Press), this from Haiti: Haitian prosecutor Bed-Ford Claude has asked Judge Garry Orélien  to charge Prime Minister Ariel Henry for the July assassination of President Jovenel Moïse, according to a letter written by prosecutor. Claude wrote that there were enough elements to order the immediate indictment of Mr. Henry. He also requested that immigration authorities keep Mr. Henry from leaving the country.  

“There are sufficient compromising elements…to prosecute Mr. Henry and to demand his outright indictment,” Mr. Claude wrote.  Mr. Claude said the prime minister had held two phone calls with a key suspect in the killing, former justice ministry official Joseph Felix Badio, in the hours after the assassination. He said Mr. Badio, who is a fugitive and whose whereabouts is unknown, placed the calls in the vicinity of the assassination.

We'll have more on this - Inner City Press' written question on Haiti have yet to be answer by the Irish Mission to the UN, president of the UNSC for September, following Guterres and his Melissa Fleming refusing to answer the Quinn Emanuel law firm's polite letter seeking access to UNGA for Inner City Press, as many state media and retirees will have.

Previously, Guterres asserted immunity for cholera, and impunity for roughing up and banning the Press that asks.

The quake occurred at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning and several aftershocks have followed. Cities in the southern region — including Les Cayes, Jeremie, Saint Louis du Sud, Aquin, Petit Trou de Nippes, Anse-a-Veau and Cavaillon  — felt the strongest vibrations, according to eyewitnesses and the United States Geological Survey. 

Now Immaculate Conception Hospital in Les Cayes issued a call for help on Haitian radio station Magik9, asking for assistance from more doctors and nurses to treat the injured. It is reliably estimated that (well) more than 700 people have been killed. And still, at 10 am in New York on August 15, nothing for Guterres. Corrupt censor - and lazy.

After hold-over president Jovenel Moises was assassinated, in the United Nations, which ran a large "peacekeeping" mission in Haiti which beyond failing brought in cholera and killed 10,000 Haitians, while refusing to compensate any of the impoverished families who lost their bread-winners, there have been belated statements of concern.  

  Now it is reported that the post-assassination government "sent a letter to the UN requesting assistance, UN Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq said Saturday." Hours later it is clear where Haq, filling in for the vacationing lead spokesman Stephane Dujarric, said this - it was not emailed out to all press, and no mention of UN's previous "assistance" of cholera and rape. We'll have more on this.

 There has been a "private" meeting of the UN Security Council, whose trip to Haiti Inner City Press covered, here, and here, before being banned from the UN and its briefings by Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

And late on July 7 from the UNSC, this: "The members of the Security Council expressed their continued solidarity with the people of Haiti." Continued solidarity? When the UNSC did nothing for the 10,000 killed by the cholera the UN brought?

  Most recently, Guterres' spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Farhan Haq have refused to answer Inner City Press' written questions about new cases of UN sexual abuse in Haiti, here.
