Former Haitian President Avril arrested
Port-au-Prince, Haiti, CANA - Former Haitian President Prosper Avril
was arrested on Saturday on charges of plotting against the state, family
Avril, who was president of the impoverished Caribbean nation from 1988
to 1990, was seized by police at a restaurant in Petion-Ville, a suburb of
the capital, Port-au-Prince, as he signed copies of his new book about
Haitian crime victims, "The Black Book of Insecurity," his daughter said.
"He started signing books and about six people in black came in -- I think
they were from the SWAT team, they came in with a paper -- and
handcuffed him," Avril's daughter, Carine Avril-Cineas, told Reuters.
