Statement of Haitian mother of five, raped and sodomized by Jordanian Soldier "peacekeeping" in Haiti

Interview of Haitian mother in Haiti raped by Jordanian "Peacekeeper" on Saturday, November 26, 2005 - Interview conducted November 28, 2005, Ezili Danto Witness Project

English translation by Frantz Jerome

Ezili Danto Witness Project Correspondent in Haiti: ....Right now, very quickly, we will enter into another chapter, as we announced yesterday, (Sunday, Nov. 27, 2005) we enter into another chapter, an ugly affront, where amongst the United Nation’s soldiers, there is a Jordanian soldier who perpetrated a crime on a lady that was raped under strange circumstances ("lan Kondityon dwol"). This madam, a mother of five small children, she was miraculously saved, because she did not want to be gang raped by other soldiers, when this Jordanian left the little guard house("Ti Cay la") and went to get his other colleagues. She ran for dear life, cutting across incoming traffic. Let’s listen to the testimony given by this lady who is a victim by the hand of this Jordanian soldier who violated her, again, under strange circumstances.

Haitian Mother, (the rape victim):
[inaudible]I was going home. It was about 5 pm when I started to wait for a “tap-tap” to first drop me at the Cazeau station where I would transfer to another one to drop me by Kafou Drouya. When I got to the Cazeau station, I could not find transportation, so I decided to walk to [inaudible]. There I could only find “tap-taps” going down in the other direction. I waited, but no “tap-taps” were coming. I noticed two people going up the street and no one going down to [inaudible]. I decided to walk down towards [Drouya].. The streets were deserted. When I reached Drouya, I noticed only the white man’s armored vehicles to the right and I went across to the left, away from them. While walking along, I was startled by a Jordanian soldier. He ordered me to come to him. I obeyed and advance to him.

Interviewer: Around what time was this?

Haitian Mother: 7 o'clock

Interviewer: in the evening?

Haitian Mother: Yes, in the evening. When I went to him, knowing that they usually search people, I handed him my small bag ("ti sak la") I was carrying. He searched it. The bag contained: one jug of rice, two jars ("mamit") of black beans, a candle and my loan money ("kob eskont") to be paid back with interests ("se te yon kob eskont mwen t' al pran) that I had just collected that Saturday. (Editor's Note: Reporter later explains to Ezili Danto Witness Project that: "yon ponya" - are very high, usury rate loans usually borrowed from local loan sharks by Haiti's market women to conduct their market businesses. They're called "ponya" -as in "taking in a dagger" - in Haiti, because you're stabbing yourself, killing yourself with the interests to pay off the loan.)

Interviewer: How much money was in your bag?

Haitian Mother: H$2000.00 (approximately US$250.00) I collected Saturday, a loan for my business. I normally would have picked up the money on Monday but my children went to school and were sent back home for non-payment, so I got the loan in advance on Saturday [inaudible] and would use H$300.00 (approximately US$30.00) to pay my child's tuition that is overdue. When he finished looking through my little sack, he forced me into the little guardhouse.

Interviewer: Did he take the money?

Haitian Mother: I left the bag with him? I left it with him… When he entered the guardhouse with me, he pushed my head down. He squeezed my head down to sexually abuse me standing up. As I fought him off. He pushed to drop me to the floor. When he managed to force me by knocking me totally all the way to the floor. He sexually abused me - raped me - from the back, in the anus.

Interviewer: [inaudible] … in the part where you defecate?

Haitian Mother: Yes, and then he ordered: “stay there, stay there” and he exited the guardhouse. I figured that he went to get others that would use me. At the same time, I saw a “tap-tap” coming. So I rushed out and ran. I ran right in front of the “tap-tap”. Luckily the driver managed not to run me over. I left my sandals and the bag on the floor and I ran….....

Interviewer: Where did this happen?

Haitian Mother: Kafou Drouya.

Interviewer:
On the National #1 road?

Haitian Mother: Yes!

Interviewer: You said it was about 7 pm. If you see the policemen who where in the area, can you ID them?

Haitian Mother: I will not recognize them because it is so dark and there was only one light on. It is very hard to see what’s going on…[inaudible]

Interviewer: You mean to tell me that a Jordanian policeman raped you
Saturday night?

Haitian Mother: Yes!

Interviewer: Saturday November 26?

Haitian Mother: November 26…

Interviewer: [inaudible] … What is your name?

Haitian Mother: My name is Marie-Rose Proceus.

Interviewer: Have you been to the hospital? Have you seen a doctor?

Haitian Mother: I have not seen a doctor yet. I have been walking around, walking around, walking around since this morning. I went to the police station and was told that I should go to the Jordanian base [inaudible]. I went there. I did not see the commander. The people I found there could not speak Kreyol and I was told to come back.

Interviewer: [inaudible]

Haitian Mother: I went to the police station in Delmas 33. I just came back from the Ministry of Women Affairs.

Interviewer: What did they tell you in the Women’s Ministry?

Haitian Mother: They gave me a paper… They gave me a paper…

Interviewer:
They told you to go to the Human Rights Organization, that’s what I noticed they did.

Haitian Mother: Yes. They said that I should go to the human rights organizations and that the organizations would send me to the hospital.

Interviewer: They told you that the human rights organizations would send you to the hospital?

Haitian Mother: Yes!

Ezili Danto Witness Project Haitian Correspondent in Haiti :
There you have the statement made by Marie-Rose Proceus, the victim of a Jordanian soldier. She went to the Ministry of Women Affairs. One would expect the Ministry to accompany her in her hour of need.

Mrs. Adline Chancy* should have accompanied the victim. The old Haitian adage says that: "One woman's pain is every woman's pain." Yet, they merely gave her a referral to the human rights agency! In our opinion it is not dealing in good faith. Marie-Rose Proceus should normally have been seen by a doctor, in an effort to get forensic evidence on the Jordanian soldier's act of sodomy. This woman is suffering. She indicated her lower stomach is aching as well as intense pain in her anus. Because it is by invading her anus that this Jordanian soldier violated her.

We have also interviewed Louis St. Vil, Marie-Rose Proceus’ husband. Let's listen to what he has to say after the Jordanian soldier raped his wife.

Husband: These men found a way to be in the country. Now, they go as far as sexual abuse and sodomizing. I say that damages are due, for this criminal act, and Marie-Rose’s loan money is lost; money that she needs to pay school tuition, to pay rent.

This loan money must be restituted but also damages must be paid for there is a risk of AIDS. If she was to die, I have no mother for our children, ...no wife...[inaudible]

Interviewer: How many children do you have?

Husband: [inaudible]...We have five children... three boys and two girls in school, primary school...[inaudible, details about family]

Interviewer: Where do you live?

Husband:…National 1 Route...

Interviewer: Have you encouraged your wife to go to the hospital?

Husband: Basically that is what I am doing. This happened on Saturday. On Sunday we did not have the opportunity to seek medical help. However, first thing this Monday morning we went to the police station. We have been making the rounds and just came from the Women's Affairs Ministry and they gave us a referral for the human rights organization and that will be our next stop. We will hand the case over to them and we hope they will take care of it.

Ezili Danto Witness Project Correspondent in Haiti: There you have it, Louis St. Vil’s statement; the victim's Marie-Rose Proceus, his wife. Louis St. Vil, is the husband. As of this moment we do not have any reactions from the UN military high command to report. We would like to hear Juan Gabriel Valdez’s reaction on this Jordanian soldier’s behavior. We’ll recall that in Gonaïves, UN soldiers raped two young ladies in a banana field.

Though there were strong reactions at the time and that the case was forwarded to a judge, the judicial process never led to a resolution.

We also know that among the first cases is that of the girl coming from her 7th grade state exams. The UN soldiers raped her and she was covered with blood as a result of their “gang bang” session. The case got a lot of attention (strong reactions) hush-hush deals led to a cover-up where even some journalists got paid to “forever remain silent”. Renold George was one of the rare politicians to denounce this "betrayal of justice". The parents were also corrupted by the money distributed all
around and they ultimately dropped the case.

The proverbial jury is still out in the case of Marie-Rose Proceus who has been victimized and is suffering because of the savage penetration of this Jordanian soldier.

END OF REPORT

* Mrs. Adline Chancy heads the Ministry of Women Affairs

More To Come from the Ezili Danto Witness Project: Follow up interviews commissioned by the Ezili Danto Witness Project for Statements from the Jordanian Commander in Haiti, the UN human rights officials, the doctor's report, the human rights organizations who were referred this case by the Women's Ministry and comment requested from the Women's Ministry. In progress....for the next installment of the Ezili Danto Witness Project report on the injustices brought to Haiti when, in a second round at colonization, Bush, Paul Martin and Chirac oustered Haiti's democratically elected government, saddle Haiti with a Miami Administrator and call its interference in Haiti's autonomy; its greed, deceit and oppression - "progress," "democracy" and "development"....)

Those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it:
See, the first US occupation and administration of Haiti and how, then too, President Wilson of the US called the US. marines exploits on behalf of New York bankers and multinationals, an exercize in "civilizing" and "developing" the "corrupt,," "failed" and "inept" blacks of Haiti....

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.
