Haiti - Politics : Demonstration of support to Guy Philippe front US embassy
Friday, more than 200 people, supporters and sympathizers of Senator Guy Philippe, brandishing his photo, Haitian flags and shouting slogans hostile to the Americans, demonstrated in front of the US Embassy in Port-au-Prince, where an important security device of the National Police of Haiti (PNH) and the peacekeepers of Minustah, had been deployed to avoid any overflow.

The protesters demanded the return to Haiti of Senator Guy Philippe, arrested and extradited to the United States on January 5, https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19721-haiti-flash-senator-guy-philippe-extradited-to-the-usa.html , accused by the American justice of drug trafficking and money laundering and targeted by an arrest warrant issued in 2005 by a US federal court.

"We want to tell the Americans to bring Guy Philippe back to the airport, where they kidnapped him. It is not because we do not have an army, because we are a small country, that Americansmay think they are allowed to enter here and arrest an elected Senator," said a very motivated supporter of Senator Philippe.

It is worth mentioning that it was not the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that arrested the Haitian Senator on the national territory, but Haitian agents of the Anti-Trafficking Bureau (BLTS), and it was the Haitian security forces who subsequently handed over the same day to the DEA Senator Guy Phlippe for his transfer to the United States.

The same Friday, Guy Philippe, went to the Miami Federal Court for the arraignment hearing https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19731-haiti-flash-guy-philippe-the-charges-are-known-appearing-on-january-13-2017.html accompanied by his American lawyers Zeljka Bozanic and Richard Okyere Dansoh, he pleaded not guilty before a Miami judge to the charges the federal government had against him https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19796-haiti-flash-guy-philippe-pleads-not-guilty.html . No date has been set for the next hearing.
