According to Reuters, The director of the World Bank's office in Haiti, Mary Barton-Dock says...

"So far, transparency in the use of Petrocaribe funds is minimal"

Salim Succar replies...

"... The special envoy, who has never requested any documents regarding use of Petrocaribe funds... The donor country, Venezuela just completed an audit that resulted in finding Haiti's management of that fund as being one of the most transparent of all Petrocaribe member countries..."
