PORT AU PRINCE – For­mer prime min­is­ter Jean-max Bel­lerive, who served from 2009 to 2011, and for­mer jus­tice min­is­ter Camille Edouard Jr., who served in 2016, have been barred from leav­ing Haiti, as the au­thor­i­ties con­duct a cor­rup­tion probe that has led to the ar­rest of 12 peo­ple.

Bel­lerive has de­nied any con­nec­tion to the 2009 dis­ap­pear­ance of a pub­lic pro­cure­ment of­fi­cial and the 2012 death of a con­struc­tion man­ager al­legedly con­nected to the case, or to other acts of cor­rup­tion.

Pros­e­cu­tor Clame-oc­nam Dameus said Edouard could po­ten­tially face charges of money laun­der­ing as well as mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion of pub­lic funds and prop­er­ties. (CMC)
