His Excellency Mr. René Garcia Préval
President Elect of the Republic
In his Offices

Excellency,

I have the honor of informing you that I took note of your recent press statement regarding the Head of State’s constitutional prerogative to grant amnesty in political maters.

I take this opportunity to express my wonderment as per a possible connection
between the above mentioned statement and the one you made earlier, again to the press, in reference to the position of the UN expert, Mr. Louis Joinet, concerning this affair of “La Scierie” in St Marc; statement in which I believe I heard you mention a judicial decision relating to the eventual liberation of political prisoners.

In my letter dated February 21, 2006, I made an affirmation to you, that the accusations, the mandate of arrest, the incarceration, and the multiple maltreatments of which I am the victim were in no way motivated by judicial maters. All these political and criminal machinations are the “master piece” of the infernal machine of the February 29, 2004 coup d’etat and the demagogic, buffoon and grotesquely Machiavellian de facto regime it engendered. As a consequence, my liberation could not be the fruit of any lawyer’s intervention on my behalf, or of any amnesty granted by anyone.

It is incumbent therefore on the powers that conceptualized and implemented the coup and on the de facto regime, as the instigators of my incarceration, to give me back my freedom.

I am attaching to the present some of the documents that, I hope, will help you understand better the cost of these two years of still continuing struggle I have been enduring, for the triumph of the Truth.

I wish that the predators of presidential mandates cease, at once, to gobble up your mandated term, which you have yet to begin.

I pray that you accept, Excellency, the expression of my highest esteem.

FRENCH ORIGINAL:


Excellence Monsieur René Gracia Préval
Président-Elu de la République

En ses Bureaux

Excellence,

J’ai l’honneur de vous faire savoir que j’ai pris note de votre récente
déclaration à la presse relative à la prérogative constitutionnelle du
Chef de L’état d’exercer le droit d’ammistier en matière politique.

Je saisis aussi l’occasion pour vous exprimer mon interrogation sur un
quelconque rapport possible entre la déclaration sus-mentionnée et
celle que vous avez faite antérieurement, encore à la presse, en référence
à la position de l’expert des Nations Unis, Monsieur Louis Joinet,
concernant cette affaire de la Scierie à St. Marc; déclaration dans
laquelle j’ai cru vous avoir entendu faire mention de décision de justice en
ce qui a trait à la libération éventuelle de prisoniers politiques.

Dans ma lettre du 21 Février 2006, je vous ai affirmé que les
accusations, le mandat d’arrestation, la détention et les multiples autres
sévices dont je suis victime n’ont été nullement motivés par une question de
justice. Toutes ces menées politiciennes et criminelles sont l’oeuvre
de la machine infernale du coup d’état du 29 Fevrier 2004 et du pouvoir
de facto démagogique, bouffon et grotesquement machiavélique qu’elle a
engendré.

En conséquence, ma libération ne saurait être le fruit d’aucune
intervention d’avocat à mon service, ou de mesure d’amnistie de qui que ce
soit.

Il incombe donc aux puissances conceptrices et exécutrices du coup
d’état, et au pouvoir de facto, qui ont fomenté mon incarcération de me
rendre ma liberté.

Je vous envoie ci-joint quelques uns des documents qui, j’éspère, vous
aideront à mieux appréhender le coût des deux années de lutte que je
poursuis encore, pour le triomphe de la Verité.

Tout en souhaitant que les prédateurs de mandats présidentiels cessent
au plus vite de rogner le votre que vous n’avez mème pas encore débuté.
Je vous prie de croire, Excellence, en l’expression de ma très haute
considération.

Letter from Yvon Neptune to Mr. Julion Simon, President of the Supérieur Court Overseeing State Administrative Finance and Disputes, March 13, 2006


**********************************************

Mr. Julion Simon
Président de la Cour Supériéure
des Comptes du Contentiéux Administratif
(President of the Supérieur Court
Overseeing State Administrative Finance and Disputes
In his Offices

Mister President,

I take this opportunity to attract your attention to the fact that I did not
receive a response to the matter of my (Official State) discharge request
submitted to the Court since the month of March 2004.

You must be aware of the fact that since June 27 2004, I have been in prison
subsequent to the arbitrary, illegal and politically motivated decisions of
the de facto regime imposed by the coup d’état of February 29 2004.
In addition, you must be aware of the fact that:

1) The de facto UCREF published a “report” in which it attempts to slander me
in relation to the Aristide Foundation for Democracy matters.

2) The de facto commission of (supposedly) administrative investigation also
did put out a “catch all report” where they attempt to defame my character,
this time, relying on the discretionary account I disposed of, in the
framework of the prerogative of all Prime Ministers.

I did not see these “reports” emitted by both de facto UCREF and CEA; but
based on what I have heard on the radio, I have publicly refuted the gross,
repugnant and lowly political allegations, of which I am the object (indeed
see attached documents)

I also seize this opportunity to point out that, as per my instructions, the
administration of the Prime Minister’s office prepared periodic expenditures
reports that, as far as I know, were regularly submitted to the Court.

Based on the Court’s very long delay in replying to my request for a
discharge, I would be grateful to you if I could at once receive the possible
reasons for such delay, given the eagerness manifested by the de facto regime
to destroy me at any costs and by any means necessary.

If for any reason the Court is not in possession of my request of the month
of March 2004, I trust that the present correspondence will be viewed as a
replacement and also as a reminder.

Please accept, Mister President, my salutations,

Monsieur Julion Simon
Président de la Cour Supérieure
des Comptes du Contentieux Administratif
En ses Bureaux

Monsieur le Président,

J’ai l’avantage d’attirer votre attention sur le fait que je n’ai reçu aucune réponse à ma demande de décharge soumise à la Cour depuis le mois de Mars 2004.

Vous n’êtes pas sans savoir que depuis le 27 Juin 2004, je suis en prison suite aux décisions arbitraires, illégales et politiquement motivées du pouvoir de facto issu du coup d’état du 29 Février 2004.

Vous n’ignorez pas en outre que:

1) L’UCREF de facto a publié un “rapport” dans lequel elle tente de me
diffamer en relation avec la Fondation Aristide pour la Démocratie

2) La commission de facto de soi-disant enquête administrative a aussi
fait sortir un fourre-tout òu la tentative de me diffamer s’est cette
fois rabattue sur le compte discrétionnaire dont j’ai disposé à l’instar
de tout Premier Ministre dans le cadre de cette prérogative.

Je n’ai pas vu ces “rapports” de L’UCREF et de la CEA, toutes deux de facto; mais sur la base de ce qui a èté transmis par la radio, j’ai, dans des notes publiques, réfuté les allégations grossières, répugnantes et bassement politiciennes dont je suis l’objet (voire copies des notes ci-jointes).

Je saisis aussi l’occasion pour vous signaler que, sur mes
instructions, l’Administration de la Primature préparait des rapports
périodiques de dépenses qui, que je sache, étaient régulièrement soumis à la Cour.

Vu le très long retard mis par la Cour à répondre à ma demande de
décharge, je lui saurais gré de m’en donner au plus vite les raisons, étant
donné l’acharnement manisfeste du pouvoir de facto à vouloir coûte que
coûte me détruire, d’une façon ou d’une autre.

Si pour une raison ou d’autres la Cour n’a pas en sa possession ma
demande du moi de Mars 2004, je voudrais croire que la présente
correspondante y supplée et tient lieu aussi de rappel.

Veuillez recevoir, Monsieur le Président, mes très distinguées
salutations.

HLLN'S MEDIA Campaign to FREE the political prisoners in Haiti

******************************


Join HLLN'S MEDIA Campaign to expose the corrupt role of the UN, US, Canada,
OAS, France, their false "humanitarian aid", to expose this international community's (the "International Community") culpable role in keeping in office, over the OBJECTIONS of the majority of Haiti's peoples, at home and abroad, for more than TWO years now, and training and paying a puppet Haitian government with no popular mandate and massive human rights abuses and political repression. Stop UN, US, OAS, Canada, France's hypocrisy. Their authorities are the ones holding the political prisoners in Haiti. They are coup d'etat countries with the UN as their proxy militarizing Haiti and fleecing it dry with their IMF/World Bank debts and foreign "free trade" multinationals exploiting Haiti's access to the Windward Passage (Mole St
Nicholas); oil (in La Gonave); uranium, iridium and Haiti's goldmines in the Northeast, gas reserves Near Aquin and our State companies, ports and plentiful and cheap labor force. They are the RESPONDIAT SUPERIORS, not the puppet Latortue government or its corrupt and paid-off judges. Write to media urging them not to let the International Community pass the blame to their very employees - the Latortue death regime and its corrupt justice system.

Demand that the mainstream media stop being false witnesses and turning a blind eye to the truth in Haiti: to the WHO holds the keys locking the political prisoners behind bars and destroying justice, decency and democracy in Haiti. It's this INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY with UN soldiers as henchmen, with its USAID, World Bank, IMF and IRI/NDI Economic Hit MEN, wielding its defacto protectorate in Haiti, using the Latortue regime, its foreign-trained Haitian technocrats as its proxy and "black face"
in Haiti

Demand that these coup d'etat implementers, FREE the people before giving back the reigns of government illegally held by the international community's employees in Haiti.

Demand that all contracts entered into under the illegal US regime's reign must go to a national referendum placed before the people of Haiti and no backdoor structural adjustment economic plan be foisted on the people of Haiti, either through the outgoing coup d'etat regime, the contracts its illegally signed or through US/Euro false benevolence such as "debt forgiveness."

Boycott Disney and the ABC Network
(Support HLLN's Campaign 5)

(in 1990)"...Haitians, through the ballot box, rebelled against their neocolonial status. They rebelled against a racist world economy that locked them into the role of producers instead of consumers. Under Aristide, they wanted to complete what they began in 1803 – joining the world community as equals. If Haiti, as the hemisphere’s poorest nation, was successful in escaping from their international debt and seizing control of their own destiny, it could prove to be as devastating to the global sweatshop economy as Haiti’s first revolution was to the slave trade.......

"...the new (US-imposed Miami) government also, as one of its first acts in office, cut Haiti’s minimum wage by 50%, from about $3.60 for a 12 hour day, down to $1.60. This is a big perk for Haitian-American Andre Apaid, owner of numerous Haitian garment manufacturing plants making cheap wares for American companies such as Disney, owner of the ABC network. ABC joined the US corporate media in selling this American citizen as a legitimate leader of Haiti’s “civil resistance” to the popular Aristide Government.
