Haiti - Bahamas : Allegations of corruption in the Embassy of Haiti...
On Monday, as part of an extensive investigation by the Bahamian authorities into serious allegations of corruption of some diplomats and employees of the Embassy of Haiti, a three-member Haitian Commission arrived in New Providence to conduct an investigation into the alleged facts.

Recall that the Nassau authorities suspect of diplomatic staff and employees of the Embassy of Haiti in the Bahamas, to be involved in arranging of arranged marriages between Bahameens and Haitians to obtain residence https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28362-haiti-social-arranged-marriages-involving-haitians-in-the-bahamas.html ; the use of franchises reserved for diplomats, for the benefit of other unauthorized persons to avoid paying customs duties on imported goods and finally on the existence of a visa trade within the Haitian diplomatic mission.

Foreign Minister Darren Henfield said he did not know how long the Haitian Commission's investigation will last, but his Haitian counterpart Bocchit Edmond confirmed his willingness to get to the bottom of the matter and take the appropriate sanctions if the allegations are substantiated.

Henfield said the Bahamas will facilitate and support all the Haitian Government's actions and requests as part of their investigation.
