9834: Slavin: Question on BBC Report (fwd)

From: PSlavin@unicefusa.org

"Haiti: Highlights of Radio Metropole news 1145 gmt 30 Nov 01
BBC Monitoring Service - United Kingdom; Dec 1, 2001

[09] After reporting on the demonstration, our correspondent in
Saint-Marc Jean-Marie Maillard was arrested and handcuffed by CIMO
[Intervention and Maintenance of Order Company] agents, despite the fact
that he had identified himself as a reporter for Radio Metropole. This took
place during a control operation. It is an unacceptable situation."

Is there more information regarding the detaining of M. Maillard? Was he
promptly released?
