New Passport For Aristide Approved, Haiti Government Agrees

President Aristide WILL finally get his Haitian passport. The Haitian government has agreed to issue a new diplomatic passport to the former president, his lawyer said.

President Jean Bertrand Aristide

Ira Kurzban, the lawyer who represents former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide told the media that he he has been notified.

Here is a clip from a an article posted on

"To expedite this matter, President Aristide's passport may be delivered to the government of South Africa or to me," Kurzban wrote in a letter addressed to two Haitian government officials.

A senior Haitian government official, under the direction of President Rene Preval, told reporters that the government was prepared to issue a new passport to Aristide "without delay".

Political observers say the decision is a significant reversal for Preval, who had refused Aristide's request for a passport for years, partly in response to international pressure.

International pressure... Huhhh? LOL

Kurzban said Aristide wants to return as "a private citizen, to help his country."


1) Do you believe that Aristide CAN live quietly in Haiti as a private citizen?

2) What do you think will happen in Haiti if and when Aristide returns to Haiti?

3) Do you think his followers will allow him to live as a private citizen?

There is not nothing bad for Aristide to return to his country.

In every country presidents always stay in their country after they complete their government things, but in Haiti things are different why and why. I think it will be a good thing for Him to come back. Haiti needs Him a lot and all of them can put their hands together to build the country

May God be with Haiti in that

Aristide is on his way to Haiti and will be landing there tonight.

It was reported that CEP is waiting for him to land before making their report public.

This is what some chimeres are dreaming about.

Nightmares do come true at
