In the next episode of Ghetto News Haiti we will explore what is it like to go to school as a kid in Haiti with the on-going demonstrations due to the understandable public outrage surrounding PetroCaribe. The Haitian people are demanding transparency from the government regarding the alleged misuse of $3.8 billion.
The money, due to Haiti under the PetroCaribe oil alliances signed between Venezuela and Caribbean nations beginning in June 2005, had been earmarked for infrastructure and social and economic projects.
Several audits have been done, with the results either failing to provide clear answers as to where the PetroCaribe funds went, or showing that much of the revenue has been mismanaged, including being spent on construction projects that were not completed.
Check back Sunday evening for the latest episode of Ghetto News Haiti.
