Does anyone know the current status of Clifford Brandt who was accused and jailed on kidnapping charged. I guess the Investigation continues, as always.
Here is the latest I have heard. The National Police of Haiti arrested on October 22, 2012 Clifford Brandt, son of Fritz Brandt. He is a major Haitian businessman accused of kidnapping. The arresrt of Clifford Brandt took place at Delmas 02 as a result of the kidnapping of two children of the Moscoso Family
This picture will stop all rumors about the son of President Michel Martelly, Olivier Martelly as several news sources has recently reported that he was in trouble with the American justice and consequently has been arrested.
Recently on September 5, 2015, Olivier Martelly, the son of Haitian President Michel Martelly was noticed arriving at Montigo Bay airport in Jamaica accompanying his father who came to attend PetroCaribe conference in the city. There were reports that he has been held in the U.S under house arrest in charges of money laundering, tax evasion and narcotic trafficking from Colombia via Haiti to the U.S. The picture of his arrival in Jamaica might put an end to the rumor of his arrest, but it will definitely generate more questions with his underworld connections and freedom.
Dozens of people took the streets in support of Andre Michel, burning barricades in a hope to gain the attention of those in charge of the proceedings. While the prosecutors continue to withhold the reason for Mr. Michel's arrest, the word is that the judge who was presiding was preparing to have Michel moved to the state penitentiary. Things erupted when protestors burst into the office of the bar association and carried their stalwart out of the proceedings. What is clear is that, what one side believes to be a fair trial was a void proceeding to others.
Little is known about the reason why prominent Haitian lawyer Andre Michel was arrested. Prosecutors have yet to disclose the reasons behind the arrest, but a source who claims to have seen the police report states that the actual arrest was for a light traffic violation. If this is so, the remanding of Mr. Michel to the state penitentiary, as is said to have been the plan, should warrant further explanation.
