9314: Kurzban and the IRI's millions (fwd)
I am grateful to the International Republican Institute's Stanley Lucas for
providing details of the Government of Haiti's expenditure on lobbyists such
as Ira Kurzban. In the interests of greater transparency in relation to the
Haitian political scene, it is useful to see names and numbers.
Along these lines, will Mr Lucas be so kind as to share with us details of
the US$3 million that, according to the Washington Post newspaper, the
International Republican Institute gave to the Democratic Convergence
coalition last year?
It would also be interesting to know some details about the US$7.94 million
spent by the USAID in the financial year 2000 on its 'Genuinely Inclusive
Democratic Governance' programme to support "Haitians in their transition to
democracy by supporting transparent electoral processes, strengthening
Haitian political institutions, increasing the effectiveness of elected
officials, and promoting the rule of law." Which organisations and
individuals received this money, how much, and what were they supposed to
have done with it?
