Haiti: Port-au-Prince protesters and police face off at corruption demo

Thousands of Haitians protested in Port-au-Prince on Sunday to demand officials involved in the alleged misuse of PetroCaribe programme funds go on trial. Protesters set tire fires alight and marched through the streets, while police tried to put out the flames. The PetroCaribe programme was put in place by late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, and it allowed participating countries to purchase... Еще cheap petroleum products and the ability to pay their bills over an extended period of time at a one percent interest rate. Earlier Haitian investigations into the misuse of nearly $2 billion (1.7 billion Euros) pointed to several ministers in the current ruling party, but none have faced legal proceedings.
