Martelly, Government Officials Get Sizable Severance Package

President Martelly, Prime Minister Paul, and other government administrators are getting a generous retirement package. An amended decree states 2.5 million Gourdes will be received by ministers and 2.0 million Gourdes by secretaries of state.

Other benefits include free vehicles, body guards, and annuities. The benefits will stretch over five years for ministers and secretaries of state, and two years for prime minister and president.

The decree has outraged working- and direly poor Haitians.
