Lilianne Pierre-Paul, reporter for Radio Haiti International in the 1980s
Here is a picture of Lilianne Pierre-Paul, reporter for Radio Haiti International in the 1980s.
The relentless efforts to expose social problems and injustice have always forced Lilianne Pierre-Paul to remain the most outspoken critic of the government since the final days of the Duvalier regime. Lilianne is the star reporter of 'Radio Haiti International and Radio Kiskeya'. She is a pride of the Haitian society, President of the Association of Haitian Media and also the leading reporter and a regular host of Radio Kiskeya. In recent times, she was vocal against all irregularities and election frauds of Martelly administration as well. Her bold reporting curtailed the Pierre-Paul's movement, she was imprisoned for her views on governments, faced numerous death threats and she was on several hit lists. Many times, her entry was prohibited from entering certain government buildings and Lilianne was sent on a six-year exile in Venezuela and Curacao-- but she has always refused to remain silent. Her devotion and commitment helped her to win the 'Courage Journalism Award' in 1990 by the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF). She won the 'Roc Cadet SOS Freedom Prize' in 2014. On December 13, 2012, she was honored by the 'Havana Guitar Show'.
