9714: Re: 9695: Karshan's response to corruption (fwd)

From: kevin pina <kpinbox@hotmail.com>

On the issue of corruption, it was announced yesterday that two members of 
the General Directorate of Customs in Port au Prince were arrested after 
more than 1,000,000 gourds in import taxes were discovered missing. In 
addition, it was also announced that Depute Placide of the West department 
was also arrested in connection with running a gang of kidnappers in Port au 
Prince. Why is it I read so much about Lavalas corruption in the foreign 
press but yet I not seen any mention these events.

Now I hear a lot of charges of corruption these days, most left
uncorroborated or purposely explained in the most complicated of fashions 
that one might be tempted to accept them through sheer exhaustion. The news 
of yesterday's arrests run completely contrary to such obfuscations as the 
message is quite simple, use the power of your office to embezzle state 
funds or to run with hoodlums then you go to jail.

I expect the usual smoke and mirrors teams to begin spinning in overtime.
