Haiti - FLASH : Towards an international audit of the use of PetroCaribe funds
President Jovenel Moïse confirmed in the Miami Herald that he is currently working with the Organization of American States (OAS) to form a team of independent international financial experts on a commission "to deliver a fair, credible, objective audit on the use of PetroCaribe funds." Recall that this Commission, which was proposed by the OAS Mission during its visit to Haiti on June 19, https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28031-haiti-politic-the-oas-says-no-to-the-departure-of-president-moise.html This is a proposal that Moïse welcomed positively, saying he was "ready to sign in Washington (OAS headquarters) and had nothing to hide."

"[...] The PetroCaribe corruption crisis has plagued our country. Anger is palpable and entirely understandable.

[...] The PetroCaribe wrongdoing is a decade-old problem, and genuine justice is long overdue. In this hyper-partisan, fractious environment, honesty and justice are distant goals. That is why I am working with the Organization of American States to assemble a team of independent international financial experts for a commission that will work around our broken politics to deliver a fair, credible, objective audit so that Haitian judges can pursue accountability for anyone found to have committed crimes and stolen from the Haitian people.

Appointing this commission is the only way for Haiti’s political system to return to the business of governing. And our first order of business must be to appoint a new government. I have certainly done my part, making compromises in the formation of my own cabinet. Numerous members of the opposition will receive cabinet posts under my proposals. I am ready to go, we need to get moving. There are no excuses left.

[...] We need to break the cycle of political chaos, thinking past the upcoming parliamentary elections in October and past the end of my administration.

[...] This will be a primary goal of the government I form. I will serve until the end of my term in 2022, then leave office.

[...] Working closely with international partners, we will need to design and legislate effective reforms for transparency that have real teeth and give Haitians a sense of accountability and trust in elected officials. We will need to de-politicize and strengthen our electoral commission — to inspire genuine confidence ahead of October’s parliamentary elections. "
