The Union des Jeunes Progressistes is a Haitian youth organization originally based in Hinche, but now with branches in Port-au-Prince and the United States, seeking to remake Haiti into a dynamic, modernizing country. They arranged two meetings with the first secretary of the Permanent Mission of France to the United Nations Arnaud Barthelemy on March 22 and 25 to present information about Aristide’s embezzlement of hundreds of millions of dollars from the Haitian treasury and the progressive sector’s effort to recover this money for Haiti. The case has become a strategic breakpoint in Haiti as the existence of pending charges may prevent Aristide’s return with the considerable destabilization this could entail.
