Opposition Senator Sorel Jacinthe made these accusations Wednesday, ahead of the ratification process which, by the way, did not take place due to serious problems that evolved inside the Senate.

Senator Dieudone Luma Etienne was the first to tell journalists of radio Caraibes FM that this is totally false.

Senator Kedlaire Augustin followed with the same, saying the opposition senator's accusation is false.

Senator Wilfrid Gelin, another accused, said he doesn't understand why such accusation was even made because he doesn't need money to vote. School is open and Haiti needs a government, he said.

This is not a surprise.

We know one day someone is going to provide the footage to alert the people.

It's a crime to see how WE THINK because it's been going on this way for too long; and it appears that no ONE have the balls to even trying to solve the problem.
