Federal grand jury finds probable cause that more Teleco officials took bribes in return for steering business to U.S.-based telecoms.
Robert Antoine, director of int’l relations at Teleco 2001-2003, admitted to taking bribes from 3 U.S. telecoms to defraud Teleco. Haitian government filed suit in 2005 alleging Aristide involvement in scheme.
James Morrell, director of the Washington-based Haiti Democracy Project, said government corruption would block any serious effort to develop the country. “They need to go back to Obama and say, ‘Let’s not put all our eggs in one basket.'”
