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

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

 

Yes, Judge Woodcock, I sent Rev. Bates the excerpts from her own emails in the hope that she would take notice of what she said and wrote in her role as a fiduciary for the safety and well being of orphaned children in Haiti in response to my warnings about the victims’ allegations of abuse (in one email, Bates tells another board member she is so angry at me that she’d like to leave a box of dirty kitty litter on my front porch / can you believe it?)

It goes without saying that when Rev. Bates’s email correspondence is revealed at trial, she and the President of Duke University will be humiliated.

(images shown above – the following is same letter displayed as text, not image)

To: Judge John Woodcock, Jr.

Dear Judge Woodcock,

I do not want my attorneys to spend even one minute responding to Plaintiffs’ attorneys letter to you (see
below), so I am writing to you on my own initiative.

Plaintiffs’ attorneys remind me of a certain brother, sister, or classmate whose most urgent priority in life is to
“tell” on their siblings or fellow students.

First, let’s keep our eye on the ball. This trial is about seven Haitian born men who will testify to the world
about the horrific physical and sexual violence inflicted upon them by Michael Geilenfeld when they were
children.

In a real sense, we are wasting time and money with the cumbersome particulars and details of the trial process.
Let’s just gather twelve of our neighbors and let them listen to the victims’ testimonies.

Mr. DeTroy and his associates cannot seem to help themselves from doing everything they can to deflect the
serious nature of the child abuse issues at hand and to stand in the way of a jury listening to the victims’
testimonies.

Rev. Sally Bates is Chaplain of Duke University’s School of Divinity.

She has a big job at Duke. She’s very savvy, perfectly capable of taking care of herself.

I want Rev. Sally Bates to be interrogated on the witness stand for days, even weeks, if that’s what it takes. I
want the world to know how Rev. Bates, the Chaplain of Duke University, with the full knowledge and
approval of the President of Duke University, responded to warnings and information about allegations of child
sexual abuse against the Director of an orphanage in Haiti, of which Rev. Bates served as a trustee and Duke
University provided in kind and financial support.

The emails that Attorney DeTroy et. al. are referring to in their letter are excerpts from Rev. Bates’s own emails.

No other party received these messages, just Rev. Bates.

Messrs. DeTroy, Pierce and Deane have repeated their same old and tired message to you in their grand letter,
but they are wrong.

They are deceiving you in but one more attempt to deflect the truth away from the essential fact that their client
is, indeed, a child molester who has inflicted horrific harm and injury upon poor and vulnerable children in
Haiti.

Yes, Judge Woodcock, I sent Rev. Bates the excerpts from her own emails in the hope that she would take
notice of what she said and wrote in her role as a fiduciary for the safety and well being of orphaned children in
Haiti in response to my warnings about the victims’ allegations of abuse (in one email, Bates tells another board
member she is so angry at me that she’d like to leave a box of dirty kitty litter on my front porch / can you
believe it?)

It goes without saying that when Rev. Bates’s email correspondence is revealed at trial, she and the President of
Duke University will be humiliated.

I keep hoping, perhaps beyond all hope, that people like Rev. Sally Bates will finally wake up, help those who
have been abused and work towards protecting innocent children in Haiti from abuse.

Sincerely,

Paul Kendrick

Orphanage founder’s arrest in Haiti could delay defamation lawsuit in Maine
Michael Geilenfeld, 62, was accused by Paul Kendrick of Freeport of sexually abusing boys at the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys in Port-au-Prince.

Commentary / An Examination of Conscience
By Paul Kendrick

I KNOW THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

SO, WHAT’S STOPPING ME?

US FEDERAL JUDGE JOHN WOODCOCK IS THREATENING TO PUT ME IN JAIL AND/OR FINE ME TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IF I PROVIDE CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, EVIDENCE AND TESTIMONY TO POLICE AND JUSTICE OFFICIALS IN HAITI.

DO I SIMPLY GO ALONG WITH JUDGE WOODCOCK AND ALLOW THE CRIES FOR HELP FROM FRIGHTENED AND SUFFERING ABUSE VICTIMS IN HAITI TO TAKE A BACK SEAT TO JUDGE WOODCOCK’S COURT ORDER TO SEAL ALL DOCUMENTS IN A CIVIL LAWSUIT AGAINST ME?

Law enforcement and Justice officials in Haiti have launched a criminal investigation against
U.S. citizen, Michael Geilenfeld, director of an orphanage in Haiti and the same multi accused child molester who is suing me for defamation.

As a result of the discovery process in my civil trial, I am in possession of important and timely information that will assist the Haitian National Police in their investigation of criminal child sexual abuse charges against Geilenfeld in Haiti.

My lawyers and the lawyers representing Geilenfeld have the same information.

Judge Woodcock has threatened me with “contempt of court” and ordered me not to disseminate any of the documents obtained during the discovery process.

Sadly, I cannot rest assured that Judge Woodcock fully comprehends the cultural complexities of a place like Haiti where child sexual abuse is epidemic.

Time is of the essence.

Eight days ago, on Friday, September 5, 2014, Geilenfeld was arrested by the Haitian National Police on suspicion of charges of indecent assault of children and criminal conspiracy, Port-au-Prince General Prosecutor Charles Kerson told the Associated Press. Geilenfeld is now imprisoned at a penitentiary in Port au Prince.

Portland, Maine Attorney Peter DeTroy, Geilenfeld’s lead attorney in the civil case, is exerting extreme pressure and influence on Haiti government officials in an attempt to obtain Geilenfeld’s release from a Haiti prison, thus enabling Geilenfeld’s quick return to the US where he will be safe from prosecution in Haiti.

By his comments to a US newspaper, DeTroy is paying great insult to Port au Prince Prosecutor, Charles Kerson, Haiti National Police and Haiti Justice officials, all of whom participated in the arrest of Geilenfeld and the closing of his orphanage.

DeTroy and his law partner, Attorney Russell Pierce, are telling reporters that the charges against Geilenfeld brought by Prosecutor Kerson and Haiti government officials are “false and suspicious…baseless…without merit,” insinuating in a very real way that Prosecutor Kerson and Haiti government officials are puppets and stooges of outside special interest groups.

Child protection advocates know from experience that if Geilenfeld remains in jail until his trial (and is not granted bail); a) children will be safe from his abuse / Geilenfeld is a multi accused child molester; b) Geilenfeld, now under extreme pressure, will not be able to threaten and intimidate victims and witnesses; (c) more victims will come forward if they can be assured that Geilnfeld cannot retaliate against them and; d) Geilenfeld will not have an opportunity to escape from Haiti to avoid prosecution.

We must show respect to the people of Haiti. The children who were abused, and their families, and the Haitian society, have a legitimate right to see Michael Geilenfeld brought to justice for crimes committed against Haitian children in the Haiti judicial system.

In February 2013, Geilenfeld and Hearts with Haiti, a North Carolina-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises money for Geilnfeld’s orphanages in Haiti, filed a defamation law suit against me in federal court in Portland, Maine, alleging that, for the previous two years, I published “false and heinous” allegations of Geilenfeld’s involvement in child sexual abuse.

The civil trial will begin in three weeks. At least seven Haitian men will offer their testimonies that they were sexually abused by Geilenfeld when they were children living in Geilenfeld’s care at his orphanage in Haiti.

I believe the courageous men who will testify at trial.

I stand by them.

It is painful for me to listen to the horrific and disgusting things that Geilenfeld did to them when they were children. The world will soon share in their suffering.

These men have placed themselves at great personal risk to help protect other children from abuse in Haiti.

They are heroes.

FULL TEXT of Criminal Complaint:

Cabinet FLEURANT
54 Avenue Lamartiniere
Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Tel: 2942-5555

February 11, 2014

The Honorable Judge of Port-au-Prince, in the Hall of Justice,

Messrs. Emile Millien,
Sony Derazin,
Sean Roubens Jean Sacra,
Jean Rony St.-Victor,
Jean Dume Viard,
All individuals residing and working both in Haiti and abroad and were identified by passport numbers and National Identification Numbers as follows: CG 1952923; PP1907645 ; 08-01-99-1981-12-00300; 004-865-652-2, 01-03-99-1979-07-00170; 007-676-747-2, 01-01 – 99 – 1979-1905 -00185; 003-873-329-2,
being represented by members of the Cap-Haitien, Haiti, Bar : Emmanuel Jeanty and Herode Charnel and by members of Port-au-Prince Bar, Aviol Fleurant, Michel Ange Asse with the following I.D. and Tax I.D. : 006-570-207-6, 03-01-99-1974-12-00030, I-3022310, A0518491; 006-651-413-4; 03-01-99-1983-05-00034; I-2752737; 003-611-689-3, 1155806, 80948031; 001-116-856-2,1321055, 80974726, with a proper mailing address for service in Cabinet Fleurant located at 54 Avenue Lamartinière (Bois Verna), Port-au- Prince, Haiti ;

In honor to explain you :

1- Briefly identify the parts of this complaint, and to put into context how the people lodging the complaint were involved :
The individuals were under the care of Michael Geilenfeld, a missionary of American nationality, and residing at his orphanage called St. Joseph’s Home for Boys located at Delmas 91. They have all either been raped or attempted to be violated by either Mr. Geilenfeld or his executives who had a heavy responsibility to ensure the children in his custody were properly raised and educated.

Simply put, their stay at the orphanages run by this individual was hell. Geilenfeld used several tricks to silence his victims and keep them quiet through the years.
These included threats and intimidation by promising to kick them out into the street, corruption of a minor, drug use, prison, and a series of threats that would discourage the victims to ever file a complaint against him.

Geilenfeld would hold the court for justice, and he stated justice belonged to those with the money, and that “every man has his price”.
This complaint is presented as a civil suit against Michael Geilenfeld, Director of the St. Joseph Home for Boys orphanage, on Delmas 91; Walnes Cangas, Assistant Director at the home for boys, Renee Dietrich, Director of Wings of Hope orphanage, which is included in the St. Joseph Family of Homes network located Fermathe; John Duarte, financial supporter for the home for boys; Bill Nathan and Phillip Norris.

This complaint is also lodged against them for the following charges: Breach of Trust, Sexual Assault, Rape, Physical Abuse, Fraud, Abuse of Authority, Abuse of Drugs and Drug Abuse, Molestation and finally for Trafficking in Human Beings for the purpose of Sexual Exploitation.
Many people will attest to the truth of the facts of what actually occurred in the orphanages of the St. Joseph Home for Boys of Delmas 91 and the Wings of Hope in Fermathe. The witnesses prepared to attest the facts in this first phase, are all the victims in this case, and in a second phase the following individuals are included:

David Cadet
Destin Jean Baptiste
Marc Louis,
Brunel, who is well known
Richy Ruiz, currently in custody at the National Penitentiary

2 . Illegal and detrimental acts of Geilenfeld and others :
Witnesses are willing to testify to the court of the illegal and detrimental acts Geilenfeld and his executives have done to them at a time deemed appropriate by the judge. They will present all the compelling evidence needed to render justice for all the Acts Against Sexual Freedom, Corruption of a Minor, Pimping, Trafficking in Human Beings for Sexual Exploitation, Attempted Murder, Drug Abuse and other acts proving that Michael Geilenfeld and his associates have carefully engineered the silence of the victims. Geilenfeld and his cronies have failed to protect and provide for the minors he was charged to protect. Geilenfeld sexually exploited and/or arranged to have other people who exploited the boys come to the home, spend time at the orphanage for an erotic romp or inappropriate touching of the male minors.
Children are turned into prostitutes and became possessions belonging to Geilenfeld. This is a practice that is incompatible with human dignity by all international standards. These orphans could not report the facts as they were relentlessly threatened by the all powerful missionary, who made the victims and his associates at both orphanages believe that he and his associates are above the law. Some of these children saw the missionary falsify official documents to travel with children out of Haiti, where they were then raped by Geilenfeld’s friends.
In addition, it should be noted here that Geilenfeld was in fact a teacher, and had authority over the minors as the director for an institution for young orphans.
In an effort to prevent these crimes from being disclosed, they were threatened with false accusations against them concerning drug activity or conspiracy to imprison, as in the case where Geilenfeld falsely accused a victim [As was the case of VIARD accusing and imprison only because he wanted to disclosed the wrong doing at Saint-Joseph Home for Boys]. Sometimes employees are either injured or attempted to be murdered in the orphanage [As was the case of Brunel being jailed for trying to kill another child in the orphanage and seriously injured another employee in the home. Brunel was released a few days after the incident to the supervision of Geilenfeld. Geilenfeld has encouraged some of the children to commit crimes. [For example Richy Ruiz who is incarcerated in the Haitian National Penitentiary. He was arrested for being in possession of a gun that was used by bandits to murder a policeman. After being arrested, he stated that the gun he had in his possession was in fact owned by one of Geilenfeld’s subordinate leaders of the home.]
In addition, a former resident of St. Joseph’s Home for Boys named Destin Jean Baptiste, was nearly killed after being attacked by another one of Geilenfeld’s subordinates after the subordinate was told Jean Baptiste was on his way to file a complaint against Geilenfeld. His attacker was arrested, but released a few days later without formal judgment for his crime.
Often, Geilenfeld invites children to participate in ceremonies that go against the boys faith. Geilenfeld made the funeral and burial for a dog named Micky a major ceremony. However, a child placed in particularly inhumane conditions and subsequently died after drowning, received no funeral. Geilenfeld sees the dog much more than the small Haitian who had to die due to negligence and recklessness. That unfortunate, physically challenged child was forced to fill a water tank from a water source located a few hundred meters from the orphanage, Wings of Hope.

The victims making the complaint, would like to remind the judge that Geilenfeld’s group is extremely powerful, highly corrupt and bloody. The fact that their orphanage is still operating is only in the margin of law, since it does not have a license to operate in Haiti. The Institute of Social Welfare (IBSR) has sent a formal demand letter, dated January 31, 2014, referencing the Decree of December 22, 1971, and demanding the orphanage close it’s doors. In that same letter, Ms. Arielle Jeanty Vildouin, Director of IBSR, listed a second reason they are demanding the closure of the orphanage. The letter notes the multiple claims against the morality of the conduct for the leaders of St. Joseph Home for Boys of Delmas 91. Due to the failure of moral conduct of the leaders of St. Joseph Home for Boys, the current young people residing at the home have no future and no hope.

3. Law and Cooperating Punishable Acts of Michael Geilenfeld and Associates:
The clauses 49, 50, 58, 63, 65, 78, 90 and following of the Law of August 7, 2001 on the Supervision and Control of Illicit Drug Trafficking, support victims in their efforts to see justice and look for the opportunity in their favor after their long obstacle course to seek justice. Many other victims promise to join the movement if justice is possible through public action against Geilenfeld, who has boasted he is untouchable in Haiti.
Haiti ratified a UN convention called ” Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others ” in 1949. This document states that prostitution is incompatible with human dignity, requiring all stakeholders to punish pimping, operators and owners of houses to close and abolish all special treatment in the registration of prostitutes.

Whether border security, drug trafficking and trafficking in human beings, in April 2013, these issues were made a priority by Secretary General of Interpol, Ronald K. Noble and the Minister of Justice and Public Security in Haiti, Jean Renel Sanon, the Director General of the Haitian National Police, Mr. Godson Orelus, and the Director of the School of Haitian Police, Jean Miguélitte Maxime.

In addition, the Article 71 of the Law of August 7, 2001 on the supervision and control of illicit drug trafficking threat: “The penalties provided for in Articles 47 to 56 shall be doubled when the offender,

* Belonged to an organized group or a criminal association;
* Participated in other illegal activities facilitated by the offense. The maximum penalties for offenses under this Act shall be doubled if the offender was a teacher or a police officer, a person responsible for the application of the Laws, a health professional or person responsible for the fight against abuse or illicit drug trafficking;
• Exercising public authority functions and the offense was committed in the exercise of those functions;
• Was invested with moral authority. ”
In addition, the clause 78 below the title VII of the Act focused on CRIMINAL LIABILITY OF LEGAL PERSONS in this case relates that: « Legal persons, other than the State, on behalf or for whose benefit any of the offenses set forth in Articles 47 to 53, 57 to 59 and 62 has been committed by one of their associations or representatives of law or fact, shall be punished by a fine of a maximum rate equal to five times said the fines specified items, without prejudice to the conviction of individuals or accomplices to the offense.
They may also be sentenced to one or more of the following:
• the dissolution, if the corporation was created to facilitate the commission of any of the above offenses;
• permanent exclusion or for a period of 6 months to 2 years to exercise, directly or indirectly, certain professional or business activities;
• to close permanently or for a period of 6 months to 2 years, companies, subsidiaries, branches or establishments used to commit the offense;
• dissemination of the decision by the press or by any other means of audiovisual communication that contravenes a prohibition imposed under paragraphs 2 and 3 of this Article shall be punished by a fine of twenty thousand (20,000) to one hundred thousand (100,000) Gourds and dissolution of the corporation, or one of these penalties.

However, the penalty of dissolution is not applicable to legal persons under public law, political parties, unions.
The Article 90 of the said Act directs,

« In case of prosecutions for the offenses provided for in Articles 47-53 and 57-59 Dean of the Court of First Instance Territorial Jurisdiction, may request of the Ministry public order on a provisional basis for a maximum period of 3 months, renewable once the closure of a house open to the public or used by the public when these offenses were committed by the operator of the house or with its complicity. »

The decision may be appealed to the Court of Appeal within 10 days of its execution or of its notification to interested parties.
Supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime Protocol defines trafficking in persons as follows:
« The term ” trafficking in persons ” shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of threat or use of force for the purpose of exploitation. »

The interpol and the decree of the National Assembly dated January 12, 2004 sanctioning the additional protocol to the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime recounts: « Trafficking in human beings is a form of international organized crime similar to modern slavery that brings in billions of dollars. It’s victims are recruited and taken to a country or region to another by traffickers who use deception or coercion. They are deprived of their independence, their freedom of movement and their free will, and subjected to various forms of physical and psychological abuse. »

It also indicates that there are three [3] major forms of trafficking human beings :

• Trafficking for forced labor
• Human trafficking for sexual exploitation;
• Organ trafficking.

Whether Article 3 of the Decree of the National Assembly dated January 12, 2004 the sanctioning supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime on the terminology protocol states:
“For the purposes of this Protocol:

a) “Trafficking in persons” shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs;
b) The consent of a victim of trafficking in persons to the intended exploitation set forth in subparagraph a) of this article shall be irrelevant where any of the means set forth in paragraph a) was used;
c) The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of a child for the purpose of exploitation shall be considered “trafficking in persons” even if they do involve any of the means set forth in subparagraph a) of this section;
d) “Child” means any person under the age of 18.

4. Application of Victims :

The complainants, all victims and witnesses require the Magistrate to proceed with the closure of St. Joseph Home for Boys of Delmas 91 and all other orphanages under the direction of Michael Geilenfeld. You are implored to take all necessary and legal measures to prevent Geilenfeld from leaving the haitian soil before a national court hands down a decision, in its favor, if possible. It will be just.

Sincerely. Emmanuel JEANTY, Lawyer. –

Since President Martelly took office, there have been some fundamental reforms in the orphanage and nursery sector in Haiti. The prevalence of child trafficking in this country has motivated the Martelly-Lamothe administration to implement a policy of enhanced oversight in this sector to protect Haitian children. Specifically, the government has built shelters while stepping up supervision and streamlining control procedures for the orphanages around the country.

As a result, the IBESR is able to give proper attention to young boys who were allegedly continually abused at the Saint Joseph Home for Boys for over 25 years. On several occasions, over many years there were protests to speak up against the pervasive practices of abuses and sexual exploitations of the children who attended the Saint Joseph Home for Boys Center. There were several protest movements by young men attending the Saint Joseph Home for Boys center in 1983, 1991 and 2005. In these protests, the boys spoke out against the unacceptable sexual practices they were subjected to by M. Michael Geilenfeld. In a visit to the United States in 1995, some young dancers from St. Joseph center made ​​several statements in U.S media denouncing the sexual abuses they have sustained from M. Geilenfeld. The alleged victims filed a complaint at the U.S. Consulate in Port-au-Prince against M. Geilenfeld, their alleged abuser. Ms. Dejean of IBERS acknowledges that she was informed of the situation at least on 4 different occasions.

Despite false statements made by Heart With Haiti, mentioning in a letter that it was on February 2004 that IBERS decided not to reauthorize the Orphanage, in a letter by Mrs. Villedrouin one can read the following statement:

“The management of the Social Welfare and Research Institute (IBESR), following a report on November 25th, 2013 from the Department of Social Works, has determined that the children under your care, in violation of the decrees of December 22nd, 1971 and  November 4th, 1983 and given the persistent allegations of abuses, are in a vulnerable situation, and their safety at risk.”

This suggests that an investigation was conducted in 2013 and that the decision to move the children was based on the findings of that investigation.

We call your attention on several key facts:

1 – Several former young men of the St. Joseph Home for Boys living in Haiti and abroad have filed a formal complaint against M. Geilenfeld for: “breach of trust, sexual assault, rape, physical abuse, fraud, abuse of authority, drug abuse and illicit drug use, sexual molestation, and finally for human trafficking for sexual exploitation ;”
2 – The Haitian justice decided to press charge against M. Geilenfeld for “Public Indecent Exposure and Rebellion;”
3 – An arrest warrant has been issued against M. Geilenfeld on July 5th, 2014;
4 – Whereas today Heart With Haiti, in its letter, recognizes that its operating permit has been suspended, on May 5th, 2014, M. Geilenfeld, under oath, has stated before a Haitian judge that he had an operating license.

This NGO only evolves in falsehoods and corruption. As additional evidence, it should be highlighted that Heart With Haiti enjoys an excellent relationship with the pro-pedophilia organization NAMBLA (North American Men and Boys Love Association). Should it be reminded that at the funeral of NAMBLA’s founder, funds were collected for the benefit of St. Joseph Orphanage, considered as NAMBLA’s chapter in Haiti.

Heart With Haiti has a deep hatred against MM. Cyrus Sibert and Paul Kendrick for demanding that their alleged crimes be brought before the court so that justice be served. MM. Sibert and Kendrick are demanding justice because they know that such criminal practices against children have lasting and devastating consequences. These young victims deserve help, support and guidance.

As it should be impossible for a person, continuously charged, and against whom there are several witnesses and tons of evidences to be able to fundraise on behalf of children and an orphanage by tapping on a network of donors in the United States. As a result, we believe that Hearts With Haiti is no longer qualified to collect funds in the names of Haitian children.

Memo for Colon Willoughby, Esq.
From Rosario Mario F. Rizzo, Esq.
Re: St Joseph Family & Haitian 1.B .E. S .R. Certification Proces,~
Date: June 26, 20 14

The Saint Joseph Family of Homes for Boys SJF have been in good standing with the Haitian
authorities for over 25 years. The Haitian authorities have referred many, many children to the
SJF since its founding in 1985. The Institut du Bien-&re Social et de Recherches (IBESR), Mme.
Villedroiun, Director, is the Haitian agency that certifies children’s residential homes in Haiti.
After the earthquake, the IBESR found that it was very hard to track children in orphanages in
Haiti, of which there were many. The IBESR decided to create a new much more stringent
certification process for children’s residential homes in Haiti, while at the same time phasing out
the majority of orphanages in Haiti. Over the last few years, IBESR has not been certifying
homes, but has been allowing all children’s residential homes and orphanage certifications to
– expire in favor of implementing a new certification process. While the new certification process
is implemented, the IBESR allows homes that have expired certifications to remain open.

In the first year of this new, enhanced certification process, 201 2, the IBESR decided to
certify only 10 children’s homes in Haiti. The new certification process takes over a year, and
requires staff training, program and procedure creation and review. The process also requires
that the organization hire’a full time social worker, recommended by the IBESR. Each IBESR
sanctioned social worker is paid by the home that employs him, works in the home(s), and
reports back to the IBESR weekly for a year. Both during and at the end of this preparation year,
the IBESR visits the homes and makes a final recommendation for approval and certification.

In 2012, the IBESR invited all three of the SJF homes to apply for certification, i.e.: three
of the first ten to be certified in Haiti. The IBESR believed that the St. Joseph Family provided
better services and a better quality of life for the children in its care than most other children’s
homes in Haiti. The IBESR wanted the SJF homes to serve as an example of and to set the
standard for a well-run children’s home in Haiti. They wanted SJF to set a higher bar for
performance and quality.

Wings of Hope, the SJF home for special needs children, was the first of the ten homes to
be certified by the IBESR under this new, tough certification process. Wings of Hope retains
this certification today.

The other two SJF homes, Trinity House in Jacmel and St. Joseph Home for Boys in
Petionville, were in the final stages of approval for full certification, and were told that they
would receive their final certifications around the beginning of 2014. However, Paul Kendrick,
with the help of Cyrus Sibert, a Haitian journalist and self-appointed child advocate,
intentionally interfered with the process.

At the beginning of 20 14, Kendrick and Sibert renewed their campaign against Michael
Geilenfeld and SJF, bombarding the IBESR with hundreds of emails, phone calls, letters and
internet postings malting defamatory and unfounded statements of child abuse at the SJF homes.

Because of the outrageousness and false exigency of Kendriclc and Sibert’s false reports to the
IBESR, on February 3, 20 14 the IBESR and the Haitian National Police mounted a S WAT-type
raid on the SJF Home for Boys in Petionville, the facility where Michael Geilenfeld lives,
complete with automatic weapons. The IBESR removed seven children under the age of 14,
placing them in an IBESR affiliated orphanage. The IBESR allowed older children to remain at
this particular home. Of the children removed by IBESR only one was an orphan. The other
children had been placed in SJF care by their families who were too poor to care for them.

On February 5,20 14, Mme. Villedroiun met with an attorney for SJF. Because of the
nature of Kendrick’s heinous allegations and the fact that the allegations are the subject of a
defamation suit in the US., IBESR has communicated that it will delay its certification of the
two SJF homes until the defamation action against Kendrick is resolved at trial in October if not
before.
The IBESR investigation into the wellbeing of the children found no evidence of child
abuse or mistreatment. On April 15, 201 4, the IBESR returned six of the seven children to their
families, with the caveat that they not be returned to SJF until the defamation case is over. The
IBESR also decided to freeze the final approval for the other two SJF homes. The IBESR
eventually told SJF’s attorney that the only reason that it fioze the final approval for each of the
home’s certifications was because of the voluminous correspondences and contacts orchestrated
by Kendriclc and Sibert.

SJF has never had any of its three certifications revolted. The re-certifications of the
Petionville and Jacmel facilities were merely put on hold because of Kendriclc and Sibert.

UPDATE – A JUDGE IN HAITI HAS ISSUED A WARRANT FOR THE ARREST OF MICHAEL GEILENFELD.

HERE IS A SEPARATE ISSUE:

July 22, 2014

Roy Cooper
Attorney General
State of North Carolina
Raleigh, North Carolina,

Dear Attorney General Cooper,

Under separate cover, I have forwarded to your attention a copy of the January 31, 2014 letter from Mme. Arielle Jeanty Villedrouin, Director General of IBESR, to the St. Joseph Home for Boys in Port au Prince, Haiti.

In her letter, Mme. Villedrouin ordered the removal of all minor children from the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys.

(IBESR is the official Haiti national government’s child welfare agency.
http://www.ibesr.com/)

Also, I am in receipt of a copy of the May 27, 2014 letter sent by Mr. Paul D’Oliviera to Ms. Jennifer Day of your office.

Mr. D’Oliviera is President of Hearts with Haiti (http://www.heartswithhaiti.org/), a North Carolina based non-profit that provides financial support to the St. Joseph Family of Homes in Haiti (http://www.sjfamilyhaiti.org/).

Unfortunately, in his letter to your office, Mr. D’Oliviera failed to respond to the content of my complaint about Hearts with Haiti’s advertising practices.

FACT – On its web site, Hearts with Haiti is currently seeking donations (“Sponsor a Child”) to help support minor children who reside at the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys

FACT – In January 2014, IBESR officials ordered the removal of all minor children from the St. Joseph Home for Boys. The minor children were placed into protective care at other orphanages.

QUESTION TO MR. D’OLIVIERA –

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR HEARTS WITH HAITI TO SOLICIT DONATIONS FOR CHILDREN WHO IT SAYS ARE RESIDING AT THE ST. JOSEPH’S HOME FOR BOYS, BUT, HAVE IN FACT , BEEN REMOVED FROM THE ST. JOSEPH HOME FOR BOYS AND PLACED INTO PROTECTIVE CUSTODY BY IBESR?

QUESTION TO MR. D’OLIVIERA –

ARE DONORS BEING INFORMED THAT IBESR OFFICIALS ORDERED THE REMOVAL OF ALL MINOR CHILDREN FROM THE ST. JOSEPH’S HOME FOR BOYS?

IN CONCLUSION.

Thank you, Attorney General Cooper for your time and attention to this matter.

I am sure you join me in looking forward to Mr. D’Oliviera’s forthright response to my reasonable and direct questions.

As we both know, the state of North Carolina and the U.S. Government both provide tax deductions and incentives to donors who contribute money to Hearts with Haiti.

Cabinet FLEURANT
54 Avenue Lamartiniere
Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Tel: 2942-5555

February 11, 2014

The Honorable Judge of Port-au-Prince, in the Hall of Justice,

Messrs. Emile Millien,
Sony Derazin,
Sean Roubens Jean Sacra,
Jean Rony St.-Victor,
Jean Dume Viard,
All individuals residing and working both in Haiti and abroad and were identified by passport numbers and National Identification Numbers as follows: CG 1952923; PP1907645 ; 08-01-99-1981-12-00300; 004-865-652-2, 01-03-99-1979-07-00170; 007-676-747-2, 01-01 – 99 – 1979-1905 -00185; 003-873-329-2,
being represented by members of the Cap-Haitien, Haiti, Bar : Emmanuel Jeanty and Herode Charnel and by members of Port-au-Prince Bar, Aviol Fleurant, Michel Ange Asse with the following I.D. and Tax I.D. : 006-570-207-6, 03-01-99-1974-12-00030, I-3022310, A0518491; 006-651-413-4; 03-01-99-1983-05-00034; I-2752737; 003-611-689-3, 1155806, 80948031; 001-116-856-2,1321055, 80974726, with a proper mailing address for service in Cabinet Fleurant located at 54 Avenue Lamartinière (Bois Verna), Port-au- Prince, Haiti ;

In honor to explain you :

1- Briefly identify the parts of this complaint, and to put into context how the people lodging the complaint were involved :
The individuals were under the care of Michael Geilenfeld, a missionary of American nationality, and residing at his orphanage called St. Joseph’s Home for Boys located at Delmas 91. They have all either been raped or attempted to be violated by either Mr. Geilenfeld or his executives who had a heavy responsibility to ensure the children in his custody were properly raised and educated.
Simply put, their stay at the orphanages run by this individual was hell. Geilenfeld used several tricks to silence his victims and keep them quiet through the years.
These included threats and intimidation by promising to kick them out into the street, corruption of a minor, drug use, prison, and a series of threats that would discourage the victims to ever file a complaint against him.
Geilenfeld would hold the court for justice, and he stated justice belonged to those with the money, and that “every man has his price”.
This complaint is presented as a civil suit against Michael Geilenfeld, Director of the St. Joseph Home for Boys orphanage, on Delmas 91; Walnes Cangas, Assistant Director at the home for boys, Renee Dietrich, Director of Wings of Hope orphanage, which is included in the St. Joseph Family of Homes network located Fermathe; John Duarte, financial supporter for the home for boys; Bill Nathan and Phillip Norris.
This complaint is also lodged against them for the following charges: Breach of Trust, Sexual Assault, Rape, Physical Abuse, Fraud, Abuse of Authority, Abuse of Drugs and Drug Abuse, Molestation and finally for Trafficking in Human Beings for the purpose of Sexual Exploitation.
Many people will attest to the truth of the facts of what actually occurred in the orphanages of the St. Joseph Home for Boys of Delmas 91 and the Wings of Hope in Fermathe. The witnesses prepared to attest the facts in this first phase, are all the victims in this case, and in a second phase the following individuals are included:
David Cadet
Destin Jean Baptiste
Marc Louis,
Brunel, who is well known
Richy Ruiz, currently in custody at the National Penitentiary

2 . Illegal and detrimental acts of Geilenfeld and others :
Witnesses are willing to testify to the court of the illegal and detrimental acts Geilenfeld and his executives have done to them at a time deemed appropriate by the judge. They will present all the compelling evidence needed to render justice for all the Acts Against Sexual Freedom, Corruption of a Minor, Pimping, Trafficking in Human Beings for Sexual Exploitation, Attempted Murder, Drug Abuse and other acts proving that Michael Geilenfeld and his associates have carefully engineered the silence of the victims. Geilenfeld and his cronies have failed to protect and provide for the minors he was charged to protect. Geilenfeld sexually exploited and/or arranged to have other people who exploited the boys come to the home, spend time at the orphanage for an erotic romp or inappropriate touching of the male minors.
Children are turned into prostitutes and became possessions belonging to Geilenfeld. This is a practice that is incompatible with human dignity by all international standards. These orphans could not report the facts as they were relentlessly threatened by the all powerful missionary, who made the victims and his associates at both orphanages believe that he and his associates are above the law. Some of these children saw the missionary falsify official documents to travel with children out of Haiti, where they were then raped by Geilenfeld’s friends.
In addition, it should be noted here that Geilenfeld was in fact a teacher, and had authority over the minors as the director for an institution for young orphans.
In an effort to prevent these crimes from being disclosed, they were threatened with false accusations against them concerning drug activity or conspiracy to imprison, as in the case where Geilenfeld falsely accused a victim [As was the case of VIARD accusing and imprison only because he wanted to disclosed the wrong doing at Saint-Joseph Home for Boys]. Sometimes employees are either injured or attempted to be murdered in the orphanage [As was the case of Brunel being jailed for trying to kill another child in the orphanage and seriously injured another employee in the home. Brunel was released a few days after the incident to the supervision of Geilenfeld. Geilenfeld has encouraged some of the children to commit crimes. [For example Richy Ruiz who is incarcerated in the Haitian National Penitentiary. He was arrested for being in possession of a gun that was used by bandits to murder a policeman. After being arrested, he stated that the gun he had in his possession was in fact owned by one of Geilenfeld’s subordinate leaders of the home.]
In addition, a former resident of St. Joseph’s Home for Boys named Destin Jean Baptiste, was nearly killed after being attacked by another one of Geilenfeld’s subordinates after the subordinate was told Jean Baptiste was on his way to file a complaint against Geilenfeld. His attacker was arrested, but released a few days later without formal judgment for his crime.
Often, Geilenfeld invites children to participate in ceremonies that go against the boys faith. Geilenfeld made the funeral and burial for a dog named Micky a major ceremony. However, a child placed in particularly inhumane conditions and subsequently died after drowning, received no funeral. Geilenfeld sees the dog much more than the small Haitian who had to die due to negligence and recklessness. That unfortunate, physically challenged child was forced to fill a water tank from a water source located a few hundred meters from the orphanage, Wings of Hope.
The victims making the complaint, would like to remind the judge that Geilenfeld’s group is extremely powerful, highly corrupt and bloody. The fact that their orphanage is still operating is only in the margin of law, since it does not have a license to operate in Haiti. The Institute of Social Welfare (IBSR) has sent a formal demand letter, dated January 31, 2014, referencing the Decree of December 22, 1971, and demanding the orphanage close it’s doors. In that same letter, Ms. Arielle Jeanty Vildouin, Director of IBSR, listed a second reason they are demanding the closure of the orphanage. The letter notes the multiple claims against the morality of the conduct for the leaders of St. Joseph Home for Boys of Delmas 91. Due to the failure of moral conduct of the leaders of St. Joseph Home for Boys, the current young people residing at the home have no future and no hope.

3. Law and Cooperating Punishable Acts of Michael Geilenfeld and Associates:
The clauses 49, 50, 58, 63, 65, 78, 90 and following of the Law of August 7, 2001 on the Supervision and Control of Illicit Drug Trafficking, support victims in their efforts to see justice and look for the opportunity in their favor after their long obstacle course to seek justice. Many other victims promise to join the movement if justice is possible through public action against Geilenfeld, who has boasted he is untouchable in Haiti.
Haiti ratified a UN convention called ” Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others ” in 1949. This document states that prostitution is incompatible with human dignity, requiring all stakeholders to punish pimping, operators and owners of houses to close and abolish all special treatment in the registration of prostitutes.
Whether border security, drug trafficking and trafficking in human beings, in April 2013, these issues were made a priority by Secretary General of Interpol, Ronald K. Noble and the Minister of Justice and Public Security in Haiti, Jean Renel Sanon, the Director General of the Haitian National Police, Mr. Godson Orelus, and the Director of the School of Haitian Police, Jean Miguélitte Maxime.
In addition, the Article 71 of the Law of August 7, 2001 on the supervision and control of illicit drug trafficking threat: “The penalties provided for in Articles 47 to 56 shall be doubled when the offender,
* Belonged to an organized group or a criminal association;
* Participated in other illegal activities facilitated by the offense. The maximum penalties for offenses under this Act shall be doubled if the offender was a teacher or a police officer, a person responsible for the application of the Laws, a health professional or person responsible for the fight against abuse or illicit drug trafficking;
• Exercising public authority functions and the offense was committed in the exercise of those functions;
• Was invested with moral authority. ”
In addition, the clause 78 below the title VII of the Act focused on CRIMINAL LIABILITY OF LEGAL PERSONS in this case relates that: « Legal persons, other than the State, on behalf or for whose benefit any of the offenses set forth in Articles 47 to 53, 57 to 59 and 62 has been committed by one of their associations or representatives of law or fact, shall be punished by a fine of a maximum rate equal to five times said the fines specified items, without prejudice to the conviction of individuals or accomplices to the offense.
They may also be sentenced to one or more of the following:
• the dissolution, if the corporation was created to facilitate the commission of any of the above offenses;
• permanent exclusion or for a period of 6 months to 2 years to exercise, directly or indirectly, certain professional or business activities;
• to close permanently or for a period of 6 months to 2 years, companies, subsidiaries, branches or establishments used to commit the offense;
• dissemination of the decision by the press or by any other means of audiovisual communication that contravenes a prohibition imposed under paragraphs 2 and 3 of this Article shall be punished by a fine of twenty thousand (20,000) to one hundred thousand (100,000) Gourds and dissolution of the corporation, or one of these penalties.
However, the penalty of dissolution is not applicable to legal persons under public law, political parties, unions.
The Article 90 of the said Act directs,
« In case of prosecutions for the offenses provided for in Articles 47-53 and 57-59 Dean of the Court of First Instance Territorial Jurisdiction, may request of the Ministry public order on a provisional basis for a maximum period of 3 months, renewable once the closure of a house open to the public or used by the public when these offenses were committed by the operator of the house or with its complicity. »
The decision may be appealed to the Court of Appeal within 10 days of its execution or of its notification to interested parties.
Supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime Protocol defines trafficking in persons as follows:
« The term ” trafficking in persons ” shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of threat or use of force for the purpose of exploitation. »
The interpol and the decree of the National Assembly dated January 12, 2004 sanctioning the additional protocol to the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime recounts: « Trafficking in human beings is a form of international organized crime similar to modern slavery that brings in billions of dollars. It’s victims are recruited and taken to a country or region to another by traffickers who use deception or coercion. They are deprived of their independence, their freedom of movement and their free will, and subjected to various forms of physical and psychological abuse. »
It also indicates that there are three [3] major forms of trafficking human beings :
• Trafficking for forced labor
• Human trafficking for sexual exploitation;
• Organ trafficking.
Whether Article 3 of the Decree of the National Assembly dated January 12, 2004 the sanctioning supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime on the terminology protocol states:
“For the purposes of this Protocol:
a) “Trafficking in persons” shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs;
b) The consent of a victim of trafficking in persons to the intended exploitation set forth in subparagraph a) of this article shall be irrelevant where any of the means set forth in paragraph a) was used;
c) The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of a child for the purpose of exploitation shall be considered “trafficking in persons” even if they do involve any of the means set forth in subparagraph a) of this section;
d) “Child” means any person under the age of 18.

4. Application of Victims :
The complainants, all victims and witnesses require the Magistrate to proceed with the closure of St. Joseph Home for Boys of Delmas 91 and all other orphanages under the direction of Michael Geilenfeld. You are implored to take all necessary and legal measures to prevent Geilenfeld from leaving the haitian soil before a national court hands down a decision, in its favor, if possible. It will be just.

Sincerely. Emmanuel JEANTY, Lawyer. –
