OPINION

Hearts with Haiti & Michael Geilenfeld v. Michael Geilenfeld

March 30th Hearing Scheduled in Portland, Maine

Maine Attorney Peter DeTroy must surrender his client, Michael Geilenfeld, to Haiti Police / Will a Fugitive of Justice be Allowed to Testify in Federal Court in Portland?

Is it possible that a U.S. Federal Court Judge will agree to preside over court proceedings that include the sworn testimony of an individual who is evading an arrest warrant that has been issued against him for questioning about sex crimes against children in Haiti?

Haiti National Police have a warrant for the arrest of U.S citizen, Michael Geilenfeld.

it is ludicrous and naive to expect that an individual who is running and hiding from police authorities in Haiti can suddenly be trusted to tell the truth on the witness stand in US federal court in Portland, Maine.

Geilenfeld’s attorney, Peter DeTroy, is an officer of the court.

As such, DeTroy has an obligation to assist Geilenfeld in surrendering himself to Haiti police authorities.

Jeanette Fuccella
Executive Director
Hearts with Haiti
Raleigh, North Carolina

Dear Ms. Fuccella,

In an attempt to derail and disrupt due process in the Haiti Appeals Court trial of multi accused child molester, Michael Geilenfeld, lawyers defending Geilenfeld filed charges against the victims who are reporting their abuse to Haiti Prosecutors, charging the victims with slander and defamation.

Child protection advocates want you, the Executive Director of North Carolina based 501(c)(3), Hearts with Haiti, to offer testimony that you have no knowledge of the past and/or present use of bribery and corruption to influence law enforcement officials, witnesses and justice officials for the purpose of exonerating Michael Geilenfeld from crimes that Geilenfeld is accused of committing against children in Haiti.

In addition, Ms. Fuccella, it is important for you to report to your donors that, according to recent news reports, seven new individuals have reported to Haiti authorities that they were sexually abused by Michael Geilenfeld when they were children living in Geilenfeld’s care in his orphanage in Haiti.

It is incumbent upon you to notify your donors of the steps you are taking to investigate these new child sexual abuse charges against Geilenfeld.

It has also been reported by the AssocIated Press that the doors to the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys are sealed shut and the facility has been permanently closed by Haiti authorities.

Would you please confirm or deny that the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys is closed?

Would you please confirm or deny that a warrant has been issued by Haiti authorities for the arrest of Michael Geilenfeld?

Do your donors know that the Wings of Hope facility is not licensed by Haiti authorities (IBESR)?

Finally, are your donors aware that their hard earned, taxpayer subsidized, donations are being used to improve and subsidize property in Haiti that is 100% owned in the name of Michael Geilenfeld? Donors will certainly be surprised by this revelation causing many, I am certain, to feel deceived and manipulated.

Lots of questions, for sure.

The operations for children in Haiti that you and your non-profit claim to support, Ms. Fuccella, are a train wreck.

You must know by now that there are more people in the world who care deeply about the protection of children from child sexual abuse than there are you, your board of directors, and your naive followers who would defend and support Michael Geilenfeld, no matter the amount of evidence against him.

As I said earlier, it is my understanding that, at present, there seven new individuals who have reported to Haiti authorities that they were sexually abused by Geilenfeld when they were children.

What are you doing about it?

I look forward to your timely response to all of my questions.

Sincerely,
Paul Kendrick
Freeport, ME

ABUSE VICTIMS IN HAITI STOP CORRUPTION ATTEMPT / MAINE ATTORNEY PETER DETROY CALLED UPON TO OFFER TESTIMONY

In an attempt to derail and disrupt due process in the Haiti Appeals Court trial of multi accused child molester, Michael Geilenfeld, lawyers defending Geilenfeld in Haiti filed charges against the victims who are reporting their abuse to Haiti Prosecutors, charging the victims with slander and defamation.

Child protection advocates want Maine Attorney Peter DeTroy to offer testimony that he has no knowledge of the past and/or present use of bribery and corruption to influence law enforcement officials, witnesses and justice officials for the purpose of exonerating his client, Michael Geilenfeld, from crimes that Geilenfeld is accused of committing against children in Haiti.

According to the U.S. Directors of a boys’ orphanage in Haiti, “Children with histories of abuse often accuse people in their lives they feel safe with of abuse, abuse that was actually committed by others…”

In other words, it’s the victims’ fault…they are liars…

Excerpt:

“The St. Joseph Family also recognizes that when children with a history of abuse find themselves in a safe place, they often are finally able to acknowledge internally and externally their past abuse, however how that takes place is often not in truthful and accurate ways. Children with histories of abuse often accuse people in their lives they feel safe with of abuse, abuse that was actually committed by others, because that is the only way they feel safe acknowledging their past experiences. Because of this, we have policies in place not only to protect the children of the St. Joseph Family from any abuse, but to also try to protect members of the St. Joseph Family leader- ship, staff, volunteers and guests from false, and misdirected, accusations of abuse.”

Cyrus Sibert invites Haitian lawyers Michael Geilenfeld to reenter … stop your lies and intimidation!
For over 5 years, Cyrus Sibert has only demand the application of the universal protocol relating to allegations and accusations of sexual abuse in an orphanage.
Ti Chen Ti Aysyen pa!
A – Michael Geilenfeld recognizes that there has been accused of sexual abuse by children from his orphanage several times: 1987, 1990, 1995, 2004, 2006 and 2007;
B- Young people who say they are victims of Mr. Cyrus Sibert Geilenfeld contacted in January 2011, four years after the last protest movement inside the orphanage. They have explained their situation and their willingness to end this calamity. While Mr Geilenfeld their having always said that they will never have access to justice in their country, we decided to provide them the necessary support to cover the costs of proceedings (Cyrus Sibert funded sometimes by Mr. Emmanuel Jeanty ) added to the volunteer services of Mr. Jeanty and his lawyer friends of Port-au-Prince pourqu’ils can make their voices heard before the Haitian justice.
C- From 2011 to today we have that requiring the application of the universal protocol when there are accusations of sexual abuse in an orphanage;
Ti Ti pa Aysyen Chyen!
Knowing that
1- pedophiles do not change, and it is the duty of every society to place them in reformatories, monitored and / or under social service supervision;
2 in a situation of sexual exploitation of minors, there are more victims than those who have the courage to reveal their injury;
3- noting that the universal protocol relating to allegations of abuse of minors has not been respected in the case of St. Joseph Orphanage;
we supported victims in the hope that the authorities and society would react in favor of child protection by adopting the measures required in this case:
a- set provisional gap of the accused,
b- open administrative investigations, private and judicial
c- care of victims,
d- adoption of a child protection policy: the establishment of a protocol governing relations, relations and distances between the children and the orphanage staff.
And in the specific case of St. Joseph Orphanage, the Haitian State in the exercise of its sovereignty, should respond to evidence of links between NAMBLA (North American Man / Boy Love Association) and this house Home operating on the national territory.
D- Cyrus Sibert, did not create any allegations or charges against Mr. Geilenfeld. It only respond to the discriminatory treatment which requires that we treat poor children of Haiti différemement of American children.
How sad to hear defense lawyers describe our civic contribution, as qu’haitiens descendants of slaves who refuse sexual slavery in the land of our ancestors, of wrongdoing. Does Haiti has lost the sense of mutual help? Where is the ideal pursued by Saint Yves, the patron of lawyers? What about the cleanliness of the oath by lawyers defending the widow and the orphan?
It is inconceivable that one of the Haitian Lawyers for Mr Geilenfeld in his testimony via Skype, with a white jury in Portland Maine, says Pedophile (child molestation) = homosexual in Haiti (Lifestyle) “… the judge Concluded That There Were sexual molestation Because of the fact That Michael Geilenfeld admis That He Was homosexual “(see the testimony of Alain Lemithe, page 41). It is a betrayal a Haitian lawyer, in his mercenary, states that our judges are unable to differentiate ente “Homosexuality” and “pedophilia”.

Port au Prince, 4th of November 2015

To:
Chief of the Tribunal of Premiere Instance
of Port au Prince
Palace of Justice
Court of Action

Honorable Chief,

The following individuals, Xxxxxxx Xxxx, Xxxx Xxxxxxx, Xxxxxxx Xxxxxx, Xxxxxxx Xxxxx, Xxxxxx Xxxxxxxx, Xxxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxx, Xxxxxxxxxx Xxxxxx, are all identified respectively and nationally as:  xx-xx-xx-xxxx-xx-xxxx, xx-xx-xx-xxxx-xx-xxxx, xx-xx-xx-xxxx-xx-xxxx, xx-xx-xx-xxxx-xx-xxxx, xx-xx-xx-xxxx-xx-xxxx, who reside in the Port au Prince area, and are legally represented by Chief Attorney Jacky C. Pierre, Advocat au Barreau of Croix-de Bouquets, identified by his license number 003-329-303-7, B-1551599, B-1551601, with is offices located at 361 Angle Rue Stenio Vincent et Grande Plaine, Croix-des-Bouquets.

Please permit me to explain:

The above charges brought by the court of Port au Prince against Michael Geilenfeld for rape and sexual aggression.  After legal consultation with the magistrate judge of Petion-ville, at the request of the court on 22nd October, 2015 a search warrant was issued to investigate at the orphanage located at Delmas 91, in order to confirm the physical presence of minors and to take all the testimony and evidence into custody.  During this process, three minors were found at the property, this, after he had been ordered to not have minors on site.  This resulted in a warrant being issued against Michael Geilenfeld for sexual aggression, rape and abuse of authority.  Michael Geilenfeld was to go  in front of the court to explain the acts committed on the victims.  He was no where to be found, thus an immediate arrest warrant was issued.

Furthermore, a letter was addressed to the responsible parties of the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys Orphanage dated the 31st of January 2014 by the Haitian Child Welfare Services, known as l’institut bien-etre social et de recherches (IBESR) which simply ordered the orphanage to close down for abuse and taking advantage of the vulnerability and insecurity of minors, meanwhile the doors of the orphanage remained open which is against the law.

Recent information, coming from informed sources lead us to believe that American donors, and other contributors are still sending money to this orphanage on behalf of Michael Geilenfeld for his administration which should have already been closed according to the formal instructions of IBESR.

In consideration of the above, the plaintiffs, request the Honorable Doyer, to allow the provincial court judge of Petion-ville or his subordinates to take immediate action to seal the gates and doors of the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys Orphanage at Delmas 91, and to secure all fixtures and furniture, and keep them safe from Michael Geilenfeld’s use.  Moreover, equally order all banks, namely Unibank, Sogebank, Banque Nationale de Credit, Capital Bank, Banque Populaire Haitienne and other to place a hold on the accounts so that no funds will be disbursed, or transferred on accounts belonging to St Joseph Home for Boys, Wings of Hope and Trinity House Orphanages and Michael Geilenfeld and all who are responsible for the orphanages until the final decision of the competent court authority.  This is to be carried out by a bailiff from your court for the following request.

Deepest Respects.

Jacky C. Pierre, av

Order of the Court

I, Bernard Sainvil, Provincial Court Judge of Port au Prince; have reviewed the request of the article above and the other documents in the file.

Considering that the plaintiffs have presented reasonable grounds to support the demand to seal the property and block the funds from the bank, that are given the authorization to freeze the accounts associated with the orphanages of St. Joseph Home for Boys, Wings of Hope and Trinity House in the name of Michael Geilenfeld and/or any other responsible parties.

Considering the law:
Permits a Justice of the Peace of Petion-ville or his charges to act to seal the gate, the entrance doors and the furniture and fixtures and affects in the house at the orphanage of St. Joseph Home for Boys at 91 Delmas, in the Petion-Ville community; Formally order the banks, namely Unibank, sogebank, capital bank, banque nationale de credit, to block, and freeze the money of the orphanage of St. Joseph Home for Boys, Wings of Hope and Trinity House in the name of Michael Geilenfeld and/or other responsible parties.  Commit the bailiff Josue Cadet of the Tribunal to take necessary action to carry out this order; The urgency of this permits the use of any means necessary to carry out this ordinance from the date signed below.

Signed at the palace of justice the 4th of November, 2015.

Bernanrd Sainvil, Magistrate Judge

SUCCESSFUL CHILD PROTECTION INTERVENTION IN HAITI.

Children are safer today in Haiti because of an unprecedented amount of publicity and information surrounding the legal action taken against a child protection activist by multi-accused child molester, Michael Geilenfeld.

Word has spread like never before.

1) Geilenfeld’s orphanage, the St. Joseph Home for Boys in Port au Prince, is padlocked and shut down per order of Haitian authorities.

2) An arrest warrant has been issued. Haitian National Police are searching for Geilenfeld in response to new allegations of child sex abuse against him. Geilenfeld remains in hiding.

3) Donors to Geilenfeld and Hearts with Haiti are being updated and informed of new child sexual abuse allegations being brought against Geilenfeld.

4) The general public is not stupid. They cannot understand how and why a Maine jury did not believe the seven Haitian men who put their personal safety on the streets of Port au Prince at great risk to testify at the trial about their horrific child sexual abuse by Geilenfeld when they were children living in Haiti.

5) Education and awareness about child sexual abuse has increased in Haiti because of Geilenfeld.

6) Increased media attention is focused on Geilenfeld’s ongoing appeals trial and the current warrant for his arrest.

7) Hearts with Haiti has removed Geilenfeld from its Board of Directors.

8) Geilenfeld will never be employed in a job that provides him with access to children in any other organization than North Carolina based 501(c)(3), Hearts with Haiti.

IS HEARTS WITH HAITI MISLEADING AND DECEIVING  DONORS?

TEN DAYS AGO, HAITI AUTHORITIES PADLOCKED THE DOORS AND CLOSED THE ST. JOSEPH’S HOME FOR BOYS IN PORT AU PRINCE.

HAITIAN INVESTIGATORS ARE LOOKING INTO NEW ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AGAINST ORPHANAGE DIRECTOR, MICHAEL GEILENFELD, WHO REMAINS A FUGITIVE FROM JUSTICE.

CHILD PROTECTION ADVOCATES WANT TO KNOW WHY HEARTS WITH HAITI, A NORTH CAROLINA BASED 501(C)(3) THAT PROVIDES FUNDING FOR THE ST. JOSEPH’S HOME FOR BOYS, IS NOT INFORMING DONORS OF THE ORPHANAGE’S CLOSING AND THE ISSUANCE OF A WARRANT SEEKING MICHAEL GEILENFELD’S ARREST.

IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL ON THE HEARTS WITH HAITI WEB SITE:

“The young people in the care of the St. Joseph Family come from some of the most desperate conditions in Haiti, with no support network and often dim prospects for survival.  Under the direction of Bill Nathan and Walnes Cangas (both SJF alums), St. Joseph’s Home for Boys is the center of this mission and the young men who reside here have, since entering the SJF, demonstrated the most significant leadership, success in their studies, and propensity for artistic achievement.”
