Wilson Laleau and the Inter-American Development Bank

Here is a picture of Wilson Laleau. Hon. Wilson Laleau served as the Minister of the Economy and Finance of Haiti under the presidency of Michel Martelly. He was also the Governor for Haiti of Inter-American Development Bank and served as the Governor of the Caribbean Development Bank. Hon. Laleau was well known for his passionate good governance. In a letter dated December 16, 2015, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) demanded former President Michel Martelly and three of his ministers, such as former Minister of the Economy, Wilson Laleau, former Prime Minister, Evans Paul, and former Minister of Public Works, Jacques Rousseau, to repay tens of millions of dollars it provided for projects in Haiti which have not been completed or have met the standards the funds were expected to meet. Most shocking in this case is that a good amount of this sanctioned fund went into no-bid contract to Jovenel Moïse's AgriTrans Company. Moïse was Martelly's handpicked candidate for Martelly's political organization Parti Haitien Tet Kale (PHTK).
