#1691: Haitians await fate on U.S. Coast Guard cutters : Arthur comments
From: Charles Arthur <email@example.com>
The Reuters report of 2nd January stated that:
"Coast Guard spokesman Luis Diaz said all 406 probably would be sent back
to Haiti under a 1981 treaty between the United States and Haiti, which
allows the Coast Guard to intercept and return passengers trying to enter
the United States illegally aboard Haitian vessels."
Wasn't this agreement between then President Jean-Claude Duvalier and the US
cancelled by President Aristide in 1994?
