The Amended Haitian Constitution Modified Illegally Before Publication

You are probably aware that the Haitian Constitution was recently amended by the national assembly of Haiti but... DID YOU KNOW that the published version of the new constitution of Haiti DOES NOT reflect what the Senators and Deputes agreed upon?

Oh Yeahhh? Tout Bon?

So...

Who Modified the Haitian Constitution and WHY?

Many Haitian senators and deputes are complaining that the amendments made to the Haitian construction in May 2011 were modified illegally before being officially published by "Journal Le Moniteur," the official government newspaper of the Republic of Haiti.

But wait... There's more!

Here is a video we found on Youtube, listen to what Haitian Senator Kelly Bastien, former Senator Samuel Madistin and Senator Steven Benoit had to say about it...

Senator Kelly Bastien says:

"I believe there are many errors in the published constituion, not only the 7 or 8 articles mentioned, I believe there are many more..."

Senator Steven Benoit says:

"There are two signatures missing in the published version of the constitution... There are AT LEAST eight articles that do not match what we signed and the constitution that was published."

If your French is good, perhaps you can help by telling our English readers what you heard in the video and what you think about it.

Question:

Who Modified the Haitian Constitution and WHY?

What happens now? Is Haiti going to move on with a new constitution that is not legitimate?
