Haiti - Justice : The Embassy of Haiti in Washington targets allegations of embezzlement
In December 2021, former opposition Senator Youri Latortue, former President of the Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, alleged that executives of the Embassy of Haiti in Washington had embezzled an amount estimated at nearly $4 million.

An accusation denied at the time by the Ambassador of Haiti in Washington Bocchit Edmond "The Embassy denies formal to the rumors according to which 4 million dollars have disappeared from its coffers. No audit has been carried out, how a person can tell the amount that would have gone missing. The Embassy acknowledges that some embassies and consulates in debt have yet to send in passport or money application forms." https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35565-haiti-flash-youri-latortue-accuses-the-embassy-of-haiti-in-washington-of-embezzlement.html

Chancellor Jean Généus confirms that inspection and audit missions have since been carried out in two consulates and the reports sent to the authorities concerned. Concerning the Embassy of Haiti in addition to the management of passport funds, appointment and lobbying contracts without the approval of the Cancellerie, would be in question... Généus affirms that if there is fraud or embezzlement, there a will have recall, transfer, dismissal and non-partisan sanctions.

For its part, the office of the Senate, following the denunciations received describing administrative excesses in embassies and consulates in general and at the Embassy of Haiti in Washington in particular, asks Fritz Robert Jean Paul, President of the Superior Court of Accounts and Administrative Litigation (CSC/CA) "to initiate an investigation with the head of the Embassy of Haiti in Washington in order to produce a comprehensive report on its management."

Fritz Robert St Paul, confirmed the decision of the board of the CSC/CA to audit, among other things, the management of funds related to passports and the lobbying contracts of the Embassy of Haiti in Washington
