#2294: Assassination of André Bazile (fwd)

From: Merrill Smith <advocacy@bellatlantic.net>

Haiti Online reports that lawyer André Bazile was assassinated Thursday
at his office in front of witnesses and clients
<http://www.haitionline.com/2000/210.htm#Bazile>. He was Director of a
credit cooperative and formerly a member of the 1997 CEP.

I understand that he was one of the six CEP members who resigned en
masse in November of 1997 apparently in protest of their being blamed
for the political impasse.

Does anyone know anything more about this and possible motives for
and/or perpetrators of Bazile's murder?
