charges against American relief worker, Waggoner
regains his liberty
Materials Management Relief Corps said on its Web site that Paul Waggoner left
the national penitentiary Wednesday and is getting medical attention. A Haitian
father claimed the former Massachusetts resident had kidnapped his infant son.
Authorities detained him for 18 days while investigating the allegation.
Waggoner and his supporters said the boy died at a hospital where he was a
volunteer in February.
Waggoner's lawyer told The Associated Press that he had provided a court with
the boy's death certificate from the hospital and an affidavit from the doctor
who treated him.
