Cap-Haitien Cathedral Vandalized

Cap-Haïtien Cathedral, a church of historical significance, was viciously vandalized in 2011. The miscreants were rumored to be part of Fanmi Lavalas, former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's party.

Debasement of the Cathedral sent shock waves throughout the predominately Catholic community. The days of being able to seek sanctuary within its walls is over.

The attack seemed to co-incide with the return of Aristide after seven years exiled in Africa. Archbishop Kebreau called upon President Martelly to adopt a law-and-order approach to ruling Haiti.
