|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.
