Haiti Money Transfer Fee Still Upsetting The Diaspora

The debate over the tax money being collected on money transfers sent to Haiti is still sparking outrage in the diaspora.


The US Dollar, Some Haitians Call it 'Caesar'

The New York daily news wrote an article about it to day saying that it is the hottest topic on Haitian radio in Brooklyn NY.

While some Haitians in the diaspora believe that the money is being used for a good cause, others are skeptic about whether the money will reach its destination: EDUCATION

Haitians, by default, do not trust their goverment.

Also, according to the article, "some believe he [President Michel Martelly] should have gotten approval from Congress before imposing the charge"

What do you think about that?

3-They should sell all the jewelries the own which is in excess of 4 millions dollars already.
