By equipment, Senator Steven Benoit is talking about heavy-duty construction equipments for executing construction tasks, road construction and other earthwork operations.

Steven Benoit said: "I told President Peval you cannot buy equiments for CNE again while back in 1998, 1999, you spent 200 million dollars to purchase equipments. First you need to know what happened to these equipments."

So, the first 197 million of Petro Caribe money was used to purchase equipments for CNE, to replace other heavy equipments that were somehow stolen. But by whom?

"First an inventory had to made," Steven Benoit said."Jude Celestin was summoned to parliament for explanation... Jude Celestin said 'pratikman nèg yo volè tout ekipman yo' (practically all the equipments were stolen)"
