|Haitian Senator Joseph
Lambert, most likely to be arrested by U.S.
|By Yves A. Isidor.
NASHUA, NH, Feb. 25 - Two agents of the United States Drug Enforcement Agency
(DEA) met privately Thursday morning, according to a longtime, high placed
credible source who spoke to Wehaitians.com early Friday on the customary
condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the case and
feared for his life and those of his immediate family members, with Haiti's Justice
Minister, Paul Denis, demanding that Haitian Senator Joseph Lambert, who has long
been repeatedly accused of trafficking in narcotics, his parliamentary immunity
be removed indefinitely.
Like in many other international relations cases involving, for example
accredited United Nations' ambassadors who put an end to the living bodies of other human
beings in New York City while driving their automobiles under the influence of
alcohol, Mr. Lambert, who until recently was also the campaign manager of
extreme violence-issued Haiti's President Rene Preval's chosen successor Judge
Celestin (he has fathered at least 23 children with 13 different maanmancitas or
women), may cease to
enjoy the many privileges parliamentary immunity accords him, provided there is
sufficient ground for so, upon a formal request, as is customary, presented by
Mr. Denis on behalf of his departing government (that of Preval-Bellerive, a
party to some U.S.-Haiti accords, which contents are not known by nearly all
Haitians) to members of the upper house body of which he is an integral part.

In the aftermath of the D.E.A. agents' meeting, Mr. Denis, late Thursday
afternoon, before he traveled to his native city of Les Cayes (south of Haiti),
paid Senator Lambert, a prominent member of current Haitian dictator Rene Preval's political party, Unite or Unity, a visit at his private residence,
situated at Chili AU #4, in the earthquake-ravaged capital city of
Port-au-Prince neighborhood of Place Jeremie.

The second meeting, which may ultimately be translated into the possible
arrest of a Haitian senator, who only a few years ago a boat belonging to him
was discovered to be transporting narcotics, its sole cargo (to cite only this very
particular case), after it was intercepted in the southern cost
region of Haiti, Tiburon, to be precise, and who was once the president of the
small Caribbean nation's senate, is reminiscent of the fate of former Senator Faurel Celestin,
who, too, many years ago became a senatorial president not long before he was placed in handcuffs
while he was still so by some of the 21 D.E.A. agents stationed in Haiti and
subsequently transported to the
U.S. state of Florida, where a verdict of culpability was returned against him by a
jury after a lengthy trial. Ultimately, as punishment for his crimes against society he
was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison, though he served slightly less
After Mr. Celestin's long period of incarceration, he was ultimately deported to
Haiti, where months later he was arrested by dictator Preval. For many, such an
arrest, which took place while he was en route from paying a medical insurance
bill, certainly had nothing to do with his U.S. conviction. Politics, as usual,
rather was the basis for so. .
