Underreported: Haitian Paramilitary Leader on Trial in New York

Thursday, July 10, 2008

Emmanuel “Toto” Constant, former leader of the Haitian paramilitary group FRAPH, went on trial earlier this week in New York. But he’s not being tried for his human rights violations – he’s on trial for mortgage fraud! After fleeing Haiti to avoid a warrant for his arrest, he lived a comfortable life in Queens as a mortgage broker. Jennie Green is Senior Attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights, which has sued Toto Constant on behalf of 3 women who survived FRAPH’s campaign of violence against women.
