Michel Martelly Campaigning In Cap Haitien

What really happened?

One of the possibilities is becoming a conspiracy theory...

The official statement:

Herold Israel, Spokesperson and Director of Communication for president Michel Martelly says YES there was a minor incident however NO ROCKS were thrown directly at the president.

There was a crowd following the presidential motorcade, Herold Israel says, and some bottles were thrown at the crowd and not at the President.

NOTE: At the time of the incident, the president was on foot... The news report suggest that the president had decided to walk from the Cap-Haitien airport into the city of Cap-Haitien...

One official was interviewed on Haitian radio, he says that President Martelly is not campaigning anymore and has no business walking on foot in Cap-Haitien, especially on certain neighborhoods.

Here is the conspiracy part...

The radio station interviewer asked the official whether he had heard rumors that some members of the Haitian parliament from the North of Haiti put together this little incident... That is was politically motivated.


Will you go with the official statement from the spokesperson of President Martelly or will you go with the conspiracy theory?

Martine; Bullet proof vest is noting if they want to shot someone in Haiti .We have lots of sharp shooters in the country, I know that for fact, because my grand father and my father was good like that.
