These are the nine allegations of Aristide government corruption and mismanagement under investigation :

  • That a former Aristide Cabinet minister made a $400,000 commission on the government’s purchase of a $1.2 million house for former President René Preval.
  • A Colombian electricity company owed $5 million by the government allegedly collected $11 million from the Central Bank.
  • That government funds were funneled to armed pro-Aristide gangs known as chimres.
  • Government funds allegedly went to the construction of a university run by the private Aristide Foundation.
  • There was a $13 million expenditure for the printing of Haitian currency in Germany and several other no-bid procurement contracts.
  • That an Aristide Cabinet minister made huge profits through duty-free franchises to import rice.
  • Government donations, including $1 million from the Central Bank, were made to the literacy Program Alpha. There is no accounting of how the money was spent.
  • That Aristide government officials and supporters received kickbacks for deals between U.S. long-distance telephone companies and the Haitian government’s telephone company.
  • Taiwan allegedly decided to give aid directly to two private foundations controlled by Aristide, instead of the Haitian government as in previous years.
