Shocking declarations made by Prime Minister Bellerive about the presence of gold, oil & iridium in Haiti


Published March 6th 2010

This week, specifically March 4th and March 5th, a conference was held at “L’École Polytechnique de Montréal”. The subject of this conference, organized by GRANH ( Groupe de réflexion et d’action pour une Haiti nouvelle), was the reconstruction of Haiti. Daphney Laraque, one of the participant (MRDH Mouvement pour le respect des droits humains), asked Haitian Prime Minister Bellerive the following questions: Does Haiti have a plan for the exploitation of it’s natural ressources specifically Gold, Oil and Iridium? Did anyone sign off the rights to exploit their ressources to foreign interest? Are there contracts underway, if yes, what is the nature of these contracts?

Jean-Max Bellerive, the same who said at “La Perle Retrouvée”: 10% of 1,000$ is better then 100% of 0, could not avoid the question. Remember that at the conference held at “La Perle Retrouvée” last month, Ricardo Lamour (Pétition Villanueva) asked a similar question, but received no answer. This time, the recently appointed prime minister could not escape the subject.

He even made the following reveiling statements:

1 – There is oil in Haiti.

2 – Contracts regarding the exploitation of oil in Haiti and oil refineries are currently underway.

3 – Bellerive declared he had knowledge of documentation about the presence of Iridium in Haiti.

4 – Contracts have already been signed and work is in progress for the exploitation of Gold in Haiti. 10 millions dollars have been invested by CFI (the World Bank private sector) in relationship with the IMF for a project worth billions of dollars.

All of which is going on while Haiti is struggling to recover from the earthquake.

The Prime Minister did not specify what was the nature of these contracts, which companies or government are the beneficiaries, and which part (if any), will profit Haiti. It seems though, that for the beneficiaries of these contracts, nature does it best!

Bellerive and a consortium of well-known Haitian figures such as Reginald Boulos, worked on a document concerning the economic future of Haiti. The text does not explore the amazing opportunities offered by the exploitation of Haiti’s mining and oil ressources, nor does it mentionned any of the serious studies done on the subject. Instead it presents agriculture as the main alternative to resolve’s Haiti’s problems. By ignoring the question of Haiti’s natural ressources, it is as if the message was: there will be looting, pillage but we will give you a little piece of bread. Even more deceiving is that they managed to get the help of left wing Michel Chancy, to caution this masquerade. The paysans may only receive little leftovers from the NGOs but at least they will eat bread…. One bag of rice against one bag of Gold…

Question: What is Bellerive aiming at by his multiple trips abroad? The sollicitation of Haiti’s diapora’s ressources? Not really. He even warns us: “ Do not bear the arrogance of telling us what to do, please remain humble”. But he does not forget to flatter the diaspora by telling them that they are essential to the reconstruction of Haiti.

In facts, Bellerive an ex-diaspora himself, hero of the private sector, is more in line with the views inspired by neo-imperialists such as Denis Coderre, Pierre Pettigrew and Lawrence Cannon. Their discourse seems to say: Diaspora we love and respect you, please validate us as people representing your interest abroad. Do not worry, abusive exploitation contracts will be sign under your name.

But do not take my word for it, Bellerive isn’t that obvious. He is an intelligent man a clever politician, and he will loose you around the corner. He follows itineraries such as those of Gerad Latortue. By praising foreigners he imposes his presence inside Haiti, and his visits abroad seem more and more like an electoral campaign..

Where we need to thank him, his that his revelations force us to question the validity of imposed haitians goverments since 2005 with Latortue, by the friends of Haiti and the legality of signed contracts since then.

Well Mr. Bellerive, the 10% of these billions that you previously referred to, where are they in Haiti’s reconstructions plan? Who are they going to? Apparently, not to people! Well in this case let’s take 100% of 0$ if you know what I mean.

And for the diaspora, why not giving money and help directly to the brothers and sisters in Haiti, instead of believing in the so called generosity of leaders.
