Par Edwin Paraison*

Spécial pour AlterPresse

Les titres des journaux haïtiens et les articles publiés dans la presse internationale sont assez éloquents pour permettre au président Michel Martelly de se rendre compte de la gravite et de l’ ampleur du dossier au cœur des relations haitiano dominicaines depuis le samedi 31 mars 2012.

Il est impossible de faire croire que toutes ces plumes et voix d’horizons divers se soient entendues et liguées pour salir l’ image du chef de l’ État et faire obstacle a ses projets pour notre pays.

L’ on peut convenir, qu’ il était de bonne guerre, lors de la campagne électorale, que le style artistique adopte pendant sa vie professionnelle de musicien, ait été place au centre des débats, pour essayer de disqualifier le candidat Martelly et l’ empêcher d’accéder a la magistrature suprême de l’ État.

Dans ce contexte, les images de ses légèretés artistiques ont été amplement diffusées et commentées dans les medias ici a Santo Domingo comme partout ailleurs. En Haïti, une bonne partie de la population se disait probablement qu’ elle n’aurait aucun motif d’être fière de l’avoir comme premier citoyen de la nation.

Toutefois sa victoire aux urnes acceptée, le réalisme voulait, surtout dans la diaspora, que l’on se dise : tout cela fait partie du passé.

En espérant bien sur que le président saurait, a la tête de la nation, initier de nouvelles relations avec le peuple haïtien en étant un modèle pour tous, en inspirant respect et confiance.

Plus que tout autre acte de sa gestion, jusqu’à date très accidentée, en termes de respect des normes institutionnelles de l’ État, les faits allégués contre lui dans ce désormais fameux reportage « Le chemin des millions » de la prestigieuse journaliste Nuria Piera dans son programme « Nuria sur la 9 Journalisme d’ investigation », de par leur dimension bilatérale, nous placent malheureusement dans une situation profondément gênante et nous donnent l’ impression de revenir à la case départ.

Par surcroit, au delà de sa personne, l’histoire récente retient que de ces pratiques peu orthodoxes dénoncées à la télévision dominicaine, des dirigeants des deux pays ont été juges responsables entre 1939 et 1946. Ce qui a eu comme conséquence naturelle l’incapacité des autorités haïtiennes à défendre les intérêts nationaux face à la République Dominicaine.

Dans ce cas particulier, Il est malheureux de constater qu’ à cause de cette regrettable affaire, même la solidarité officielle dominicaine lors du tremblement de terre de 2010 est mise en cause. Ainsi que la récente décoration du président Martelly par le Chef d’ État dominicain, à l’ordre de Duarte, Sanchez et Mella. Alors que la rencontre les deux hommes avait été accueillie comme une nouvelle étape positive dans les rapports haïtiano-dominicains.

Si l’on veut croire qu’ il existe une volonté politique réelle des deux Côtés de l’île, favorable à une gestion transparente de nos relations, les conséquences de ce dossier sont trop lourdes pour qu’il soit classé avec une simple note de la présidence.

Les experts en communication et relations publiques seront d’ accord que la perception généralisée est qu’ il a anguille sous roche.

De par ce fait, rien ne sera plus comme avant pour la présidence de Martelly et la gestion des relations haïtiano-dominicaines, si la honte de toute une nation n’ est pas lavée, par l’ intéressé, avec des explications détaillées et convaincantes, accompagnées d’ actions appropriées pouvant placer au-dessus de tout soupçon le chef de l’État.

* Président de la Fondation Zile, ancien ministre des Haïtiens vivant à l
’étranger

Spectacular Corruption Charges
Rock Martelly Regime

by Kim Ives

http://www.haiti-liberte.com/archives/volume5-38/Spectacular%20Corruption.asp


Follow the money, says the old adage of investigative journalism. A crusading Dominican journalist did just that with dozens of financial documents from some Dominican construction firms and uncovered shocking results.

Over the course of 2011, Michel Joseph Martelly, as a candidate, president-elect, and president of Haiti, received close to $2.6 million in over a dozen payments from a Dominican Senator named Félix Bautista, according to an explosive Mar. 31 television report by star Dominican journalist Nuria Piera.

The alleged bribes were likely connected to securing three post-earthquake multi-million public works contracts dubiously won by Bautista-controlled Dominican construction companies, according to Nuria’s report and to Haitian government documents obtained by Haïti Liberté.

The allegations come when President Martelly is already besieged by a Haitian Senate investigation into whether he and his Prime Minister nominee, Laurent Lamothe, may hold or have held dual citizenship, which is prohibited by Haitian law.

If Nuria’s charges prove true, wholly or even partially, they may deal a mortal blow to Martelly’s presidency. Already, Deputy Arnel Belizaire, who was illegally arrested last November on Martelly’s orders, says he is close to calling for the convening of Parliament’s High Court of Justice to impeach the President. Another deputy, Tholbert Alexis, told Scoop FM that he would push for a special commission to look into Nuria Piera’s allegations.

Several payments to Martelly allegedly came from the bank accounts of two Bautista-owned firms which have won major contracts in Haiti. Constructora Hadom is slated to rebuild Haiti’s Legislative Palace (housing Parliament), destroyed in the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, for $33.77 million, while Constructora Rofi S.A. was tapped to build a new housing development in the quake-devastated Port-au-Prince neighborhood of Fort National for $174.31 million. Construcciones y Diseños R.M.N. S.A., also linked to Bautista, won a $135.31 million contract to build a housing development on Bowen Field, Haiti’s former military airport in lower Delmas.

In short, all three contracts, totaling $343.32 million, were granted to three companies all owned by or connected to Sen. Félix Ramon Bautista Rosario, who is also the secretary of the ruling Dominican Liberation Party (PLD) headed by President Leonel Fernández. Constructora Hadom is 98% owned by Bautista, Nuria’s documents show. Bautista also owns Constructora Rofi. Two very close associates of Bautista, Rosalin Marta Novas and Jose Bolivar Ventura, own Construcciones y Diseños R.M.N..

However, the contracts, approved on Nov. 8, 2010 by former Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, were the target of an audit by Martelly’s Prime Minister Garry Conille, who was forced on Martelly by Washington in October 2011. Martelly forced Conille to resign in February 2012 after the prime minister refused to call off the audit of those three contracts (and 38 others with Dominican companies) as the president had ordered.

Rumors have swirled around Haiti and its diaspora for weeks that Conille was fired for undertaking the audit and that it contained information damaging to both Bellerive and Martelly. But in an Apr. 3 note from Martelly’s Communications office, the president claimed that he was the one who insisted on the audit “which he would never have demanded if he was colluding with the beneficiaries of these contracts considered dubious by his government.”

President Martelly has denied Nuria Piera’s charges in Tweets he sent out at about 7 p.m. on Apr. 2. “The Presidency of the Republic categorically rejects the allegations that the President of the Republic, HE Mr. Michel Joseph Martelly, has been involved in any corruption case involving firms or individuals from the Dominican Republic,” Martelly wrote via Twitter, calling Piera’s report “accusations that are fantasies and unjustly made against the head of state” which “are part of a larger campaign to poison public opinion and to smear the image of President Martelly and undermine his integrity.”

Martelly’s Tweets concluded by saying “this attack waged against the head of state is part of a campaign trying to obstruct the policy of change and modernization of the state that the President of the Republic is beginning to establish in the country.”

The same evening, Martelly’s spokesperson, Lucien Jura, took to the airwaves to deny Nuria Piera’s report.

Piera also said that Mirlande Manigat, Martelly’s opponent in the Mar. 20, 2011 presidential run-off, received a cash payment of $250,000 on Feb. 18, 2011. The head of Manigat’s campaign, Sen. Youri Latortue, claimed that he knew nothing about the payment. Manigat also denied that she or her campaign had received any such money. “They say that this is a credible journalist, but she was wrong,” Manigat said.

Last week, in a response to an article in Haïti Liberté, Bellerive also denounced criticism of the contracts as “an obviously sponsored press campaign” (he did not say by whom) and a “media lynching,” arguing that “due to their geographical proximity, Dominican firms were in good position to win contracts.”

However, a highly placed Dominican Republic-based source who provided Haïti Liberté with the bids and contracts was outraged. “The closed bid with three companies belonging to the same person is a nightmare,” he said, venturing the following analysis. “I believe that Uncle Sam was concerned that the scandal was so great and obvious that it could discourage international donors to give more money to the country... Bellerive was sloppy... The PM [Conille] at first was not going for a witch-hunt but was simply trying to annul those contracts to redo them. I don't think he was prepared to endorse this disaster. But the President took offense at his investigation.”

The contracts were approved in November 2011 by a committee: Michel Content, Lionel Grand'pierre, and Hervey Day. All three are close associates of Bellerive. Day, who headed the committee, is Bellerive's cousin. Later, Day would be named by President Martelly as the Planning Minister, a post also held by Bellerive while he was the Prime Minister. Conille had also wanted to hold the Planning Minister’s post but was denied it by Martelly. The post is key since the Planning Minister handles most of the reconstruction contracts.

“It’s true that Félix Bautista presented us with several Dominican companies because we asked Leonel Fernández to help us find companies willing to work right away — even without advance payment,” Bellerive told the Miami Herald, adding that he “did not know [Bautista] was owner of shares in those different companies.”

The Dominican Republic’s National Directorate of Prosecution of Administrative Corruption told the Herald that it was now investigating Bautista, who represents San Juan de la Maguana, for corruption.

Piera’s report also pointed to apparent bribes being paid to many high-ranking officials in the PLD and the Dominican government.

The report also said that Sen. Bautista is fabulously rich, owning about $10.44 million worth of real estate around the DR.

Bautista has also denied any wrong doing but has a very checkered past. In 2000, he was jailed for corruption and mismanagement of government funds, and was charged with the same in 2007. He has also been under investigation for links to the notorious Puerto Rican drug lord Figueroa Agosto.

Piera alleges that the payments made by Bautista’s companies to Michel Martelly were as follows:

● On Mar. 17, 2011, three days before Haiti’s presidential election, $300,000 and $200,000 were transferred from the bank Acct. # 240-005129-7 of Diseño de Obras Civiles y Electo or DOCE, which Bautista owns.

● On Apr. 4, 2011, $300,000 directly, and another $300,000 as cash via Ricardo Jacobo, was delivered from DOCE’s bank Acct. # 240-005129-7.

● On Nov. 3, 2011, $100,000 was transferred from DOCE’s bank Acct. # 240-005129-7.

● On Nov. 5, 2011, $150,000 was paid from Constructora Hadom’s Banco Popular Acct. # 766-215511.

● During 2011, payments of $400,000, $300,100, and $100,000 were made from Constructora Rofi to a Unibank acct. #0102-1012-0009423393.

● During 2011, another $37,000 was transferred from Constructora Rofi in cash via Victor Reynoso.

The total amount transferred by Bautista-controlled companies to Martelly in 2011 was $2,587,100, according “only to the reports that we have in our possession,” reported Nuria Piera, suggesting that there may have been even more kickbacks. Her program “Nuria Investigacion” is said to be the Dominican Republic’s highest-rated television show.
