“Today I have chosen the path of exile rather than to allow myself to become corrupted and subservient,” wrote Jean-Robert Faveur in a letter on June 21 to President Aristide. Two weeks after he became Haiti’s acting police chief, Mr. Faveur resigned and went into self-imposed exile because of alleged government interference and threats to his life. He was sworn in June 6.
