Kidnapping: An arrest that
deeply challenges the conventional wisdom (An
AHP editorial analysis)
AHP News - June 28, 2005
English translation (Unofficial)
The arrest last week in Port-au-Prince of a Haitian from a "good
family" as a suspect in numerous kidnapping cases, often
targeting foreigners, may well put an end to the stereotypical
assumption that all the abduction plots are hatched in the impoverished
As recently as last week, the pre-fabricated and ready-made story
line was as follows: "kidnapped in Nazon, Pétion-ville,
Cité Soleil or Thomassin, and headed for Bel-Air".
This story line, according to many observers, was designed first
and foremost as a diversion and to mislead the investigators while
it helps to justify and encourage the heavily-armed robust operations
in the populist districts.
At the same time, elements of the international community have
urged MINUSTAH to take a closer look, if the objective is indeed
to combat violence and address the incidence of kidnappings.
Haitians have a two-part question to answer and a difficult but
clear choice to be made.
Do you wish to continue to allow yourselves to be fooled and misled
by people who tell you what you wish to hear, for example that
the people responsible for all your misfortunes are people you
have never liked...
Or, would you like to learn the full truth about the source of
your misfortunes, even if those misfortunes might turn out to
spring from a source within your own heart?
The June 23rd arrest in the hills of Thomassin of a man named
Jerry Narcius, if that is in fact his real name, should help open
a few eyes.
This arrest has caused a tremendous stir.
One immediately heard people urge the Haitian National Police
(PNH) spokesperson to disclose the whole truth about this individual,
for example, by revealing his full identity, as the police generally
with other suspects.
People also asked that the suspect be turned over to the Haitian
police and the Haitian justice authorities. Then, the next day,
at the airport, the UN Mission was accused of wishing to remove
Narcius from police custody because, some alleged, he is a UN
However, in the opinion of sources close to MINUSTAH, the situation
is not so simple.
In reality, the whole point was to succeed both in striking a
blow at the UN Mission and in showing that MINUSTAH, which from
this point forward will have full control of the status and recruiting
of Haitian police officers, has as we say here, " grenn Zanno
ka òfèv", or, in other words, is far from being
as white as snow. Certainly not.
The UN Mission has denied allegations that Narcius was working
for MINUSTAH, and also denied rumors that he is a Canadian citizen.
The UN force announced that it has decided to take charge of the
case solely in order to protect Narcius, who is seen as an important
element in the fight against kidnapping.
He is even suspected of involvement in the kidnapping of Montreal
resident, Huguette Goulet.
According to reports, he may have already made some striking revelations
that could implicate others from social circles similar to his
own who are affiliated with other sectors... and not just any
As a consequence of these latest developments in the fight against
MINUSTAH has apparently now recognized the need to turn its attention
also to the residential neighborhoods.
Several of these neighborhoods were examined with a fine-toothed
comb last weekend by UN police from CIVPOL who in some cases went
door-to-door looking for people who had been abducted, including
the owner of a very large hotel in the capital.
This time, the PNH spokesperson is entitled to compliments for
her recent statements regarding the multiplication of sectors
involved in kidnapping.
Well-known and respected individuals, and even high- ranking Haitian
police authorities are not to be excluded, she confided.
But there have been complaints in recent days about the fact that
many of those arrested in connection with shady activity have
been able to leave the country, while it is their subordinates
who have been locked behind bars.
The arrest of Narcius, even if it doesn't cause all the masks
to fall, will at least have allowed one thing to happen: to discover
hypocrisy, bypass false leads and enable those who truly wish
to end the violence in Haiti to move forward along the correct
paths, those which lead to the sources.
At the same time, the decision by the UN Security Council to transfer
control of the PNH to MINUSTAH has not triggered a lot of public
comment from the interim government or the political community.
Privately, however, there are grumblings: "this is not what
we were asking for"... "This is not what we were promised.
They told us instead that they would get rid of 'a dictatorship'
", said one leader, who added "now there they go taking
everything from us as if those who are governing us and our institutions
are complete zeroes".
The host of a political broadcast last week denounced the indifference
of the political leaders in response to what he considered to
be an insult by the Security Council.
And now all of a sudden, the coming elections are destined to
be " bouyi vide" (bogus).
That is what is called harvesting the bitter fruits of a foolish
Une arrestation qui vient boulverser les données
L'arrestation la semaine dernière à Port-au-prince
d'un citoyen haïtien de "bonne famille" pour implication
présumée dans de nombreux cas de kidnapping notamment
d'étrangers pourrait definitivement effacer le cliché
qui veut que tous les cas d'enlèvements soient signés
Jusqu'à la semaine dernière, la formule toute faite
à répeter était la suivante: "kidnapppé
à Nazon, Pétion-ville, Cité Soleil ou Thomassin,
Une formule, qui selon beaucoup, aurait pour vocation première
de faire de la diversion, fourvoyer les enquêteurs et en
même temps justifier et encourager les opérations
musclées menées dans les quartiers populaires.
Cependant, des secteurs de la comunauté internationale
ont fait savoir que la MINUSTHA devrait regarder aussi un peu
plus près, si l'oobjectif est bien de combattre la violence
et le phénomène du kidnapping.
Les haïtiens ont une double question à laquelle il
leur faut trouver réponse et un choix difficile mais lucide
Voulez-vous continuer à vous laisser berner et induire
en erreur par des gens qui vous disent des choses que vous souhaitez
entendre comme par exemple:les responsables de tous vos malheurs
sont des personnes que vous n'avez jamais aimés....
Ou voulez-vous connaitre toute la vérité sur l'origine
de vos malheurs, même quand ces malheurs pourraientt être
issus de votre sein même?
L'arrestation le 23 juin dans les hauteurs de Thomassin d'un certain
Jerry Narcius, si c'est effectivement son nom, devrait contribuer
à désiller les yeux de plus d''un.
Cette arrestation a provoqué tout un tollé.
On a tout de suite entendu des gens réclamer de la porte-parole
de la PNH qu'elle dise toute la vérité sur cet individu,
qu'elle révèle par exemple son identité,
commme on le fait d'habitude pour les quidams.
On a réclamé que l'individu soit connfié
à la police et à la justice Haïtienne. On a
ensuite, le lendemain à l'Aéroport, accusé
la mission onusiennne de vouloir soustraire le Narcius à
la police parce qu'il serait un de ses employés.
Mais de l'avis de proches de la Minustha, la chose n'était
pas aussi simple. En réalité, toute la question
aurait été d'arriver à atteindre la Mission
et du coup montrér que cettte institution qui a désormais
tout contrôle sur le statut et le recrutement des policiers
Haïtiens, a aussi comme on dit chez nous " grenn Zanno
ka òfèv et serait donc loin d'être blanche
comme neige. Mais certainement pas.
La Mission a rejeté les accusations selon lesquelles Narcius
travaillerait pour elle de même que les rumeurs selon lesquelles
il serait de nationalité Canadienne.
La force onusienne a fait savoir que si elle a décidé
de prendre en main le dossier c'est uniquement pour protéger
l'individu qui est désomais une pièce importante
dans le cadre de la lutte contre kidnapping.
On le soupçonne même d'implication dans l'enlèvement
de la Montréalaise, Huguette Goulet.
Selon les informations, il aurait même déjà
fait des revélations qui pourraient conduire à des
gens du même milieu que lui et issus d'autres secteurs....
pas n'importe lesquels.
Comme consequence de ces derniers dévelopements dans le
dossier du kidnaping, la MINUSTHA aurait reconnu désormais
la nécesité de regarder aussi en direction des quartiers
Plusieurs de ces quartiers ont été passés
au peigne finle week-end dernier par des policiers de la CIVPOL
qui ont fait dans certains cas du porte-à-porte à
la recherche de personnes enlevées dont la propriétaire
d'un très grand hôitel de la capitale.
La porte-parole de la PNH a droit cette fois à des compliments
pour des déclations qu'elle a faites récemment autour
de la multiciplicité de secteurs impliqués dans
le kidnapping. Des gens connus pour respectables et même
de hauts gradés de la PNH ne sont pas à exclure,
Mais on se plaint ces dernierrs jours du fait que beaucoup de
ceux qui ont éte arrêtés en rapport avec des
actions louches, ont pu quitter le pays, alors que ce sont des
sulbalternes qui sont écroués.
L'arrestation de Narcius si elle ne fait pas tomber tous les masques,
elle aura au moins permis une chose: découvrir l'hypocrisie,
contourrner les faussses pistes et permettre à ceux qui
veulent effectivement la fin de la violence en Haïti s'orienter
vers les vraies pistes, celles qui mènent aux sources.
Parallèlement, la décision du conseil de sécurité
de confier le contrôle de la police à la MINUSTHA
n'a pas fait grand bruit officiellement du côté des
autorités intérimaires et de la classe politique
Il y a toutefois, des bougonnements en privé: Ce n'est
pas ce que nous avions demandé. Ce n'est pas non plus ce
qui nous avait été promis. On nous avait plutôt
dit qu'on nous débarasserait "d'une dictature",
a dit un leader, ajoutant: voilà qu'on nous prend tout
comme si ceux qui nous dirigent aujourd'hui et nos institutions
seraient des nullités absolues.
L'animateur d'une émission politique a dénoncé
ce week-end l'indifférence des leaders politiques face
à ce qu'il considère comme un affront de la part
du conseil de sécurité. Et du coup, les élections
à venir ne peuvent être soudain que" bouyi vide"

Several cases of kidnapping
reported over the past few days have been facilitated due to the
complicity of individuals close to the "victims" or
by the "victims" themselves
Port-au-Prince, July 24, 2006 (AHP); A Haitian police source told
AHP Monday that several kidnappings reported over the past few
days in the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area have been perpetrated
with the collaboration of family members of the "victims"
or others close to them.
The source said that in some cases the people who were abducted
were accomplices in their own "abduction" in order to
obtain payment of ransoms from which they would later benefit.
The police force explained that some cases have been documented
in which a son, seeking to enrich himself, arranges to have his
own father or another close relative kidnapped, or a fiancé
has his own fiancée kidnapped and vice versa.
" We are not suggesting that all kidnapping cases are hoaxes,
but several of them have been tied to complicity from within the
family", said the source, who offered as an example the case
of a young woman named Reyes, who is accused of having conspired
with her own "kidnappers".
The young Nicolas Coles, who revealed information about a kidnapping
that actually took place two days later was provisionally released,
but his documents are still being held by the police.
With regard to that case, the police are said to be on the verge
of making several arrests after having collected additional information,
the police source told AHP, confirming once again that not all
kidnappers come from deprived neighborhoods and that many young
people from "good families" are letting themselves be
drawn into this new industry.
Last weekend the Haitian police arrested several individuals including
a former police officer inside a home set up to house kidnapping
victims in the Pernier district of Port-au-Prince.

Americans among those
kidnapped for ransom in Haiti
New York Daily News
WASHINGTON - At least 80 Americans have been kidnapped in Haiti
in the past year, including four murdered by thugs seeking big
ransom payoffs, the New York Daily News has learned.
The victims, ranging in age from 2 to 70, were seized from cars,
homes and even ripped from their beds amid a rash of abductions
plaguing the impoverished Caribbean country.
Last year, 800 people, mostly Haitians, were kidnapped, according
to U.S. officials. More than 60 were abducted in just the last
Most of the Americans seized were released, but three were killed
during kidnapping attempts and one was slain in June after the
family paid a ransom, FBI officials said.
U.S. officials would not disclose the names of any victims, but
Charles Adams of Queensbury, New York, was one.
Adams, 70, once owned an Albany TV station and sports teams but
now works with the Rotary Club and nonprofit Pure Water for the
World on clean-water projects.
On July 16, he and his Haitian driver were carjacked near the
airport in the capital Port-au-Prince, where most abductions occur.
Held in the Cite Soleil slum for a day, Adams was freed without
paying any money - a first.
"The gang that had me was making between $30,000 to $50,000
a week in ransom," Adams said. "It's like catching fish.
It's a big business."
The ransoms demanded vary - and often are unreasonable, given
victims' finances - but families usually pay something, sources
"If they decide to pay, we provide them with counsel on how
to negotiate with hostage-takers," Alejandro Barbeito, the
FBI agent in charge of the Miami Extraterritorial Squad, told
The News. "That's so they don't get taken for a ride."
None of the U.S. citizens taken hostage since early 2005 - including
at least 35 reported this year - were kidnapped for political
reasons, FBI officials said.
Barbeito advised U.S. citizens to "not draw attention to
yourself" with flashy jewelry or cars. Missionaries are often
targeted, and traveling alone at night and always driving the
same route also makes visitors more vulnerable.
Gerard Latortue, who was Haiti's prime minister until June, said
thugs often get tipped off about Americans with wealthy relatives
from friends they've made locally.
"Sometimes Americans in Haiti are not careful enough,"
Latortue told The News.
Mark Schneider, a Haiti expert at the International Crisis Group
think tank, said the spate of kidnappings began last year when
corrupt cops realized Haiti's government and the UN weren't going
to get rid of them.
"It just was another way to make money," Schneider said.
Eight Haitians turned over to U.S. authorities since last year
have pleaded guilty to kidnapping.
They included three men who recently pleaded guilty to snatching
a 9-year-old American girl from her bed and threatening to kill
her if they didn't get ransom money. Two other men admitted in
court they had kidnapped a 5-year-old boy and "threatened
to cut him into pieces" unless they were paid $300,000, prosecutors
said. Both children were rescued.

A summons may be issued
to the head of the judicial police, according to sources close
to the judiciary
Port-au-Prince, September 12, 2006 (AHP); Government prosecutor
Claudy Gassant may be about to issue a summons to the Central
Director of the Judicial Police (DCPJ), Michael Licius, at the
request of investigating judge Napela Saintil, who has been looking
into a case concerning Mr. Licius.
According to court sources, the DCPJ director and three other
police officers are accused of having maintained, over the past
two years of the interim government, good relations with a group
of individuals accused of crimes such as kidnapping.
The alleged kidnappers are said to be attachés (violent
police auxiliaries) who had police uniforms, weapons, ammunition
and hoods in their possession and who also committed serious abuses
in the populist districts of Port-au-Prince over the same period.
The investigating judge is believed to have photos and other documents
proving the existence of relations between Licius and the attachés.
Moreover, the attachés reportedly testified about their
connections to the director, according to the same sources, who
also indicated that certain organizations were involved in negotiations
to prevent the summons against Michael Licius from being issued.

earlier occasions to respond to a notification from Judge Napla

Top Haitian police officer
indicted for kidnapping

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Oct 25 (Reuters) - One of Haiti's top police
officers will face arrest if he does not turn himself in after
his indictment for complicity in kidnappings, a prosecutor said
Inspector-General Michael Lucius, head of the police agency that
investigates kidnappings, has refused to appear before investigative
Judge Napela Saintil, who issued warrants against him and two
other police officers last month.
Lucius, who is barred from leaving the troubled Caribbean nation,
has denied the allegations and said Saintil is biased against

that ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. It has been
unable to contain political and gang violence, despite the presence
of thousands of U.N. peacekeeping troops sent to help with security
after the rebellion.
Dozens of people have been kidnapped for ransom during the crime
Prosecutor Claudy Gassant said Lucius must appear before the judge
or he will face arrest.
"Our position is clear and firm," Gassant said. "Mr.
Lucius has to comply with the judge's order or he will be arrested."
An investigative judge is forbidden by law from revealing details
of an inquiry. But sources familiar with the case said jailed
suspects and others had provided evidence that Lucius had aided
kidnappers who claimed they were working for him.
"I can't understand that the judge wants to arrest me on
the basis of false accusations brought by criminals I have arrested,"
Lucius, director of Haiti's Judicial Police, said recently.
Gassant and Police Chief Mario Andresol had deferred the execution
of the warrants after Lucius decided to challenge Saintil's allegations
before the Supreme Court. But the high court last week rejected
Lucius' appeal, which obliges him to appear before Saintil.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti: A top Haitian police commander who has

in kidnappings has resigned as head of his division, police said
Inspector General Michael Lucius, who led an office that investigates
kidnappings and other serious crimes, quit his post Tuesday and
will be transferred to another unit, police spokesman Frantz Lerebours

Kidnappings for ransom flourished in the capital of Port-au-Prince
after a February 2004 revolt ousted former President Jean-Bertrand
Aristide, the impoverished Caribbean country's first democratically
elected leader. Most of the crimes have been blamed on street
gangs — including some loyal to Aristide — but corrupt
police have also been implicated.
Lucius' refusal to answer the kidnapping charge has tested a weak
system already hobbled by corruption, chronic case backlogs and
lack of funds.
He told reporters he stepped down to prevent his case from becoming
"a handicap for the work of the legal and police institutions."
But Prime Minister Jacques Edouard Alexis said the government
asked Lucius to resign "so that justice can be restored to

A former Finance Minister
has been kidnapped in Port-au-Prince
Port-au-Prince, November 30, 2006 (AHP) - Fred Joseph, Minister
of Finance and the Economy in the first government of René
Préval (1996-2001), was abducted Wednesday evening in Port-au-Prince.
The former official was on his way home when he was seized by
armed men and taken to an unknown destination.
As the news was announced, police patrols sealed off a number
of streets in the capital, particularly in upper Delmas and Frères.
The investigations have not yet produced the desired results.
It appears that the kidnappers have made contact with Mr. Joseph's
family and the vehicle in which he was traveling has reportedly
In certain quarters close to the presidency, the kidnapping is
seen as a message to President Préval, as he is known to
be close to the former Finance Minister.
The people of Port-au-Prince are on a heightened state of alert
since the killing of a young girl and child who were found dead
in separate incidents after having been kidnapped.
Several sectors criticized Prime Minister Jacques Edouard Alexis
for having said that his government remains in favor of dialogue
with those who possess illegal weapons.
It is a common practice in several countries to hold talks with
armed men, often sponsored by the international community, in
an effort to obtain peace.
Such is the case in the Ivory Coast.
Under the interim government of Gérard Latortue, Justice
Minister Bernard Gousse had a meeting at his office with Louis
Jodel Chamblin, who agreed to turn himself in to the justice authorities.
Mr. Chamblin was formerly a head of the FRAPH paramilitary organization,
which has been condemned for its role in the murders of hundreds
of people during the military coup d'Etat of 1991.
Shortly after this meeting, Mr. Chamblin was released, an event
which was of considerable concern to some human rights organizations
but failed to trigger the slightest public outcry from a number
of human rights organizations. The fact that convicted gang leader
Jean Tatoune was allowed to remained at large similarly provoked
no protest from these same human rights organizations.
The two men, Chamblin and Tatoune, were also accused of involvement
in the killing of numerous police officers and civilians during
the multi-headed movement to overthrow President Aristide in January
and February 2004.
