re: 7127, Toussaint, purchase of house, etc.
The item addressed in this message, which contains facts written so honestly
and clear the message becomes a chilling reminder, is finally a reference a
lot of people have been waiting for: the mention of the woman: Gladys
Lauture has remained literally nearly an "anonymous advisor", practically
unknown to the international community, to this administration since
President Aristide took the oath of office - even before. It seems
impossible that she has remained relatively behind the scenes despite her
A throwback from the dread days when the voracious greed of Michele Duvalier
crippled an already lame country, Lauture operates with ruthless tactics
that can only be described as dramatically familiar, mired in the pits of
extreme remines as sick as the Third Reich.
A registered Laboratory Technician by profession, it is unclear how Michele
Duvalier met Lauture, but they became immediately close, as Michele also
identified with the rough woman's killer instincts. They went into business
During the coup d'etat, Lauture pretended to lay low, when in fact she was
protected by the Military who naturally were attracted by her blind greed.
When the poor Parish Priest, Jean Bertrand Aristide returned to Haiti as a
returned but disallusioned hero, he was a good ploy to lead into the path of
the same power and greed. Lauture became his mentor, his mother, his
financier, his broker, and his confidante. Her pretense as a Democratic
supporter" insured more trust when Aristide returned, especially when it was
obvious her definition of Democracy would make him super rich. Aristide's
giant ego was, and is, constantly massaged by this plain, unattractive
woman. The President is dazzled by Lauture's blatant ambition. When Preval
was President he did not like Lauture, but also quickly accepted (and
identified) that one did not need frills or beauty to succeed. Again, the
country is paralyzed by leaders who have exercized the horribly familiar
power of increasing and furthering their own gains over any advancement at
all of its people.
This woman is feared by all. She is a partner in crime. Her house became
"the place to go", for the foreign community as well as the Haitian.
Everyone is afraid of this woman, as she insists she is included in all
business deals inside of the regime. If there is a deal that excludes her,
the person or persons involved may simply disappear.
How does it happen this unbelievably fierce, uneducated, mannerless,
heartless woman is never mentioned when the unending problems of the
political situation in Haiti are discussed and analyzed. How does she get
away with it? How can she be stopped? How can she be prosecuted for her
crimes, as war criminals are? How can she gain when so many lose so much?
This message is not meant to open non-ending discussions or huge debates
about what is obvious. The information listed is important only in that it
conveys an urgent warning for immediate action of some sort. People like
Gladys Lauture must be stopped at this moment of time in Haiti. She must be
demasque or else shocking facts like the unbelievable and unnecessary
expenditures for the recent inauguration of Aristide will continue and grow
like cancer. Lauture managed this budget. For example, approximatley
$500,000. was spent on silverware and dishes for only one V.I.P. room. This
was just one reception out of six. Over one million dollars U.S. was spent
for this inauguration. Imagine.
And then there is the house for Preval.
Where is this taking us?
This is one urgent, definite aspect that must be addressed before things get
even more completely out of hand. Haiti must be free, must progress, and
finally must employ the Democracy that applies to all of its people, and not
to a chosen few.
