Pro-Aristide Politicians Arrested in Haiti

HeadlineOct 04, 2004

In Haiti, police have arrested three politicians including the country’s Senate president. All three are supporters of the ousted president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. They were arrested after a standoff at the independent radio station Radio Caribes. While he was being taken away the Senate President Yvon Fuille said “They are kidnapping me. They have no reason to arrest me, it is an illegal arrest.” The U.S.-backed government claimed the men were linked to recent killings but many saw the arrests as a political move.
