WYCLEF JEAN VOUCHES FOR THE HONESTY OF EDOUARD KANZKI
(Haiti Libre) -
Pierre Édouard Kanzki, whose name was mentioned on April 12, in a joint statement from the Dominican and Haitian governments, as being involved in an alleged plot to destabilize the government of President Michel Martelly, has rejected from that day all the allegations against him, claiming his innocence and is trying with his lawyers, to get out of this political and financial imbroglio, of which he is a victim.
Wyclef Jean, Goodwill Ambassador for the government of President Martelly, in a press note, vouches for the honesty of Pierre Édouard Kanzki :
"I, Wyclef Jean, Goodwill Ambassador for the government of President Martelly, am speaking today, to secure my position before the government, the political, economic, religious sectors, before the press, the organizations defending human rights, the people of Haiti, the international community, and the whole world, in the case of the alleged plot against the government of President Martelly.
Pierre Edouard Kanzki is my friend, he's like my younger brother. I like him. He likes me a lot. I know him thoroughly. Pierre Edouard and his family are also friends of the President Martelly. They are friends of the government. Peter Edouard was at my side throughout the campaign for the second round of elections. He is a young man who is honest, dynamic, intelligent, a hard worker, and who has never been involved in any shady or illegal business.
Before all sectors of the country: political, economic, religious, media, organizations defending human rights, the people of Haiti, the international community and the entire world, I Wyclef Jean, can vouch that Pierre Edouard Kanzki is not part of any conspiracy, and has never been involved in a plot.
Thank you very much."
