Former Haitian Senate President, Celestin, again regains his liberty
By Yves A. Isidor, wehaitians.com executive editor

CAMBRIDGE, MA, Sept. 12 - Phaurel Celestin, a former long disbanded Haitian army colonel who a few months ago (June 16) was imprisoned by the extreme violence-issued Haitian government of Preval-Pierre-Louis on the accusation that he grandly pratized drug trafficking, and as a result his said inherited house was seized by the Caribbean nation's de facto judicial authorities, months after he served nearly five years in a United States Miami federal prison as punishment for trafficking in narcotics, but not before a verdict was returned against him by a jury, regained his liberty mid Saturday afternoon.

As usual, no formal explanation, at least, was given to the Mr. Celestin, a medical doctor, by training, whose real cause of illegal arrest and prolonged detention was that he was viewed as a political threat to the always intoxicated Haitian President Rene Preval, after supporters days before shouted "long live Phaurel," as he was returning home after paying a medical insurance bill, in the trash-filled capital city of Port-au-Prince.

Prior to Mr. Celestin's U.S. long incarceration, he was the president of the Haitian senate.
