Subject: re: Thank you for your letter – RE: Response to sexual abuse accusations Mike Geilenfeld

Dear Mr. Davis:

Since you adressed your email to HTF, please allow us to be clear:

The Haitian Timoun Foundation has no legal relationship with Hearts with Haiti or the Saint Joseph’s Family.  We are an independent 501-c-3 US public charity who funds a number of organizations in Haiti, of which the Saint Joseph’s Family is one.  These organizations apply for grants.  These grants, as well as the sponsorship of children,are evaluated and awarded through strict criteria.  This criteria not only evaluates the worthiness of the request against our mission and purposes but also mandates clear accountability.  As we ourselves are champions for children in Haiti, we believe, like you, that even the slightest allegation of abuse should be reported to the proper governmental agency or their designated agent for investigation. We hold less faith in non-governmental investigations as such processes are often subjected to detractors.

We have long been aware of the 20 year accusations against Michael Geilenfeld.  We are also aware that there has not been one investigation that failed to clear him of all charges.  Believing in the fine work of the Saint Joseph’s Family, we have continued to fund them over the years; however, because of the current investigation we have suspended fundraising efforts for them pending a clean exoneration of all charges.

Dear Ms. Murphy,

Rev. Rick Barger, former Executive Director of the Haitian Timoun Foundation, has just released a statement in which he speaks on behalf of your foundation.

Click link below.

Would you please confirm that Rev. Barger’s statements in the affidavit about HTF fundraising are true and accurate.

In December 2011, Rev. Barger issued a statement in which he said that HTF was suspending all fundraising and donations to Michael Geilenfeld and St. Joseph’s Family of Homes in Haiti until a complete and thorough investigation of child sexual abuse allegations against Mr. Geilenfeld had been completed.

How long (if at all) did HTF suspend donations to SJF?

How much money did HTF contribute to Michael Geilenfeld and SJF during the years 2011 to 2013?

How much money did HTF receive from Trinity Lutheran Church in Suwanee during the years 2011 to 2013?

Did HTF receive a report of a completed investigation of the allegations against Mr. Geilenfeld?

Does HTF currently provide financial and in-kind support to Mr. Geilenfeld and the St. Joseph Family of Homes?

183-3 – EXHIBIT 3 (R1328783xAB81A)







“This lawsuit is an attempt to silence me from trying to protect Haitian children from being sexually abused and my efforts to bring a measure of justice to those who have already been abused,” said Kendrick at the time the lawsuit was filed in February 2013.

“The good news about this lawsuit is that the Haitian children who were sexually abused will finally have the opportunity to confront their abuser in the safety of a U.S. courtroom. The plaintiffs in this lawsuit are calling the victims liars. Their attempts to silence me will only serve to make the victims’ voices stronger and more forceful.”

Michael Geilenfeld is a former member of Mother Teresa’s Brothers of the Missionaries of Charity.

Geilenfeld is the long time Executive Director of the St. Joseph’s Family of Orphanages in Haiti.

The PROTECT Act of 2003
This bill makes clear there is no statute of limitations for crimes involving the abduction or physical or sexual abuse of a child, in virtually all cases. Under previous law, the statute of limitations expired when the child turned 25, potentially allowing child rapists to go free if law enforcement could not solve the crime in time.

Under current law, defendants who commit crimes against children are often released on bail. The bill makes it more difficult for defendants accused of serious crimes against children to obtain bail. This is similar to other existing provisions for some drug, firearms, and violent crimes.

The bill strengthens laws punishing offenders who travel abroad to prey on children (“sex tourism”).

GRAND DOSSIER : Haïti, « Terre promise » des prêtres pédophiles américains : Le puzzle! (Texte de Cyrus Sibert)

Depuis plusieurs semaines, la stratégie de défense de Michael Geilenfeld, le Directeur de l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph accusé de crime de pédophilie, est de construire de faux témoignages dans le but de discréditer tous ceux qui réclament que vérité et justice soient faites sur les accusations d’exploitation sexuelle et de pédophilie à l’intérieur du centre d’accueil de Delmas 91, Haïti, qu’il dirige.

Le militant des droits humains, Paul Kendrick et le journaliste d’investigation, Cyrus Sibert représentent à leurs yeux, deux personnes à discréditer, en détruisant leur image aux yeux du tribunal Fédéral de Portland, Maine et du public en général. Car, le 5 mai de l’année 2014, le dossier sera entendu devant un juge Fédéral Américain. Ayant porté plainte contre Paul Kendrick pour diffamation, Michael Geilenfed a ouvert une boite de pandore, réveillant l’esprit de justice d’un nombre important de victimes et de témoins.

Se trouvant en difficulté avec des dépositions de plus et plus embarrassantes, tenues un peu partout à travers le monde – d’Haïti, des Etats-Unis, jusqu’en Angleterre, des témoignages, souvent en présence de l’accusé, de personnes déclarant ouvertement avoir été abusées par le Directeur de l’Orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91- le dernier recours des défenseurs de Michael Geilenfeld consiste, à attaquer, non pas les faits qu’on lui reproche, mais ceux qui ont le courage de les rapporter et surtout le duo Sibert-Kendrick, sans lequel l’affaire serait passée sous silence, comme d’habitude.

Dans un pays où les citoyens défavorisés en lutte avec la misère sont sans défense face à des criminels puissants, des étrangers pourvus des grosses connections internationales et surtout à l’intérieur de l’Eglise catholique, un abuseur comme Michael Geilenfeld peut facilement intimider ses victimes, au point de porter l’une d’entre elles, Marc Louis qui avait déclaré librement devant nos cameras qu’il avait été sodomisé par Michael Geilenfeld, de changer son témoignage et de crier au scandale. Marc Louis a ainsi déclaré sous serment qu’il a menti ; qu’il a été pressuré par Cyrus Sibert de mentir ; des pressions qui auraient pris l’allure d’intimidation ; le journaliste Cyrus Sibert, lui aurait remis une feuille de papier, lui indiquant les déclarations qu’il devait faire contre le directeur de l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91.

Nous vous invitons à regardez l’enregistrement solennel de Marc Karl Louis et de juger s’il lisait un papier. Dans cette vidéo vous verrez que l’homme racontait son histoire avec des précisions sur ce qui lui est arrivé, les endroits et les personnes aux Etats-Unis qui étaient au courant de sa situation.

[ Haiti-Pédophile-Geilenfeld : Un témoin à décharge affirme avoir été victime.– ]

C’est aussi la situation d’un jeune homme qui réside à l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91, qui a rédigé un papier dans lequel il affirme avoir reçu l’invitation de Cyrus Sibert qui cherchait à le rencontrer le 16 septembre 2013 pour le forcer à déposer contre Michael Geilenfeld, en échange d’argent et de promesse de dons. La déclaration est datée du 14 février 2014. Son auteur affirme avoir été poursuivi, ce jour là, par Cyrus Sibert, qui accompagnait deux autres victimes dans une voiture.

Un tas de mensonges qui visent à discréditer ceux qui réclament qu’une enquête approfondie soit réalisée sur cet orphelinat de Delmas 91, que les victimes qui ont porté plainte soit entendues par la justice ; que l’Etat haïtien adopte des mesures conservatoires pour protéger les enfants haïtiens et les personnes vulnérables concernées par ce dossier.

Nous rassurons tous ceux qui supportent cette campagne pour la vérité et la justice, que :

1- Nous sommes en mesure de prouver que Marc Louis était décontracté et qu’il avait décidé sans pression de faire sa déclaration. Ce que Geilenfeld ne savait pas, nous avions enregistré Marc Louis depuis son arrivé dans la chambre d’hôtel où il rencontrait les autres victimes de Saint-Joseph, dans une ambiance de retrouvailles ; et qu’il avait rappelé aux autres victimes les abus qu’ils avaient vécus ensemble. Ces échanges libres nous avaient donné l’idée de lui proposer d’enregistrer, en vidéo, une déclaration solennelle reprenant tous les faits qu’il avait raconté aux autres victimes. Cette proposition était un test du sérieux de ses accusations contre Michael Geilenfed. La dite vidéo devait servir au cas où Marc Louis serait en difficulté avec les sbires de Geilenfeld. Ce qui a été fait quand au début du février 2014, Michael Geilenfeld faisait augmenter la pression sur ses victimes et que Marc Louis, fut introuvable ;

2- Nous pouvons prouver que le 16 septembre 2013, nous n’étions pas en Haïti, mais en déplacement dans la ville américaine d’Orlando, Florida, où nous avions réalisé des transactions, jusqu’à notre retour au Cap-Haitien par un vol de la compagnie IBC Airways, le 18 septembre 2013. Donc, Cyrus Sibert ne pouvait pas inviter un jeune de Saint-Joseph à le rencontrer à une date qu’il n’était pas disponible en Haïti pour cette réunion. De plus, le jeune en question rapporte qu’il a été suivi le 14 février 2014 par une voiture et que Cyrus Sibert se trouvait dans cette voiture. Nous pouvons prouver que le 14 février 2014, nous n’étions pas à Port-au-Prince. Cyrus Sibert n’a jamais rencontré, ni parlé à ce jeune homme.

Toutefois, si les défenseurs de l’accusé s’activent à chercher des témoins à décharge, les supporters des victimes ont aussi le droit de chercher des victimes et des témoins capables d’apporter des preuves supplémentaires afin de confirmer ou d’infirmer certains points. Nous ne nous laisserons pas intimider par ceux qui abusent physiquement, sexuellement et moralement des enfants. Nous continuerons à sillonner la planète, à la recherche de toute personne désireuse de témoigner sur la situation à l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91.

Plus, Geilenfeld et sa bande cherchent à se défaire des accusations qui pèsent contre eux, plus ils compliquent leur situation et prouvent qu’ils ont quelque chose à cacher. Cette construction de faux témoignages contre des plaignants, contre des témoins et contre des supporters de victimes, est un acte indigne qui prouve le niveau maléfique des gens qui dirigent l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91.

Ces gens sont de vrais escrocs qui ont menti aux contributeurs américains, leur disant qu’ils sont en règle avec l’Etat haïtien, alors que depuis plusieurs années, les orphelinats Saint-Joseph fonctionnent sans autorisation de l’IBESR (Institut Bien-Etre Social), l’organe étatique chargé de contrôler ce genre d’institution. Heureusement, en février 2014, l’Etat haïtien a finalement décidé de fermer cette maison pourrie. Aujourd’hui, l’un des avocats de Michael Geilenfeld présente Madame Arielle J. Villedrouin, la directrice de l’IBESR, comme une personne incapable de décider.


[ Mme Arielle J. Villedrouin, of IBESR, cannot think for Herself : ]

[ Contenu de la lettre de l’IBESR ordonant la fermeture de l’Orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91. ]

Hypothèse d’enquête :

Nous profitons de ce texte pour communiquer au public, l’hypothèse de recherche qui constitue la base de notre motivation dans ce dossier.

En aout 2008, un ressortissant haïtien évoluant dans la diaspora, visita la ville du Cap-Haitien. Comme d’habitude, il apporte des cadeaux pour des enfants de rue qui mendient sur le boulevard. Dans une conversation avec eux, il apprend que enfants sont abusés à l’orphelinat Projet Pierre Toussaint, un Centre d’Accueil pour enfants de rue en banlieue que dirigeait Douglas Perlitz, un missionnaire catholique américain. Choqué, l’homme rapporte les témoignages à un ami capois, en se demandant comment cela peut-être possible sous les yeux des autorités étatiques chargés de superviser ce genre de projet ? Son interlocuteur le rassure en lui disant qu’il connaît un journaliste intègre, capable de dénoncer cette situation intolérable.

C’était le 15 aout 2007, je circulais en voiture dans le quartier de carénage, quand, d’un geste de la main, un ami me fit signe d’arrêter, disant à son interlocuteur : « ”En parlant du loup, on voit sa queue”, voici Cyrus ». Ils m’ont rapporté les allégations recueillies. Je leur ai dit que souvent on entend ce genre de rumeurs dans la ville. Cependant, pour que je puisse rédiger un article sur ce sujet, il me faut des victimes et des témoins… « Plusieurs victimes et plusieurs témoins… un papillon ne fait pas le printemps »

Ainsi, j’ai rencontré des victimes qui ont accepté de témoigner. J’ai pu constituer des sources pour me renseigner des faits et gestes de l’accusé, des sources de contrôle aussi. Finalement, j’ai décidé de rédiger un texte dénonçant les pratiques d’abus sexuels, sans citer de nom, ni d’institution.

[ Cap-Haitien, le pédophile et son centre d’accueil pour enfants de rue : ]

Plusieurs enquêtes on été réalisées par la suite, Perlitz a du fuir Haïti. Finalement, il est arrêté par ICE et Homeland Security, deux instituions américaines chargées d’appliquer la loi contre tous les citoyens américains qui voyagent avec objectif de se livrer à des relations sexuelles avec des mineurs.

Quelques semaines avant l’arrestation de Douglas Perlitz, avec la montée de pression de la justice américaine contre l’accusé, Paul Kendrick m’a contacté pour me demander ”si j’avais des preuves solides pour soutenir l’accusation”. Je fus méfiant. Car, j’avais peur que des supporters du pédophile, ne se fassent passer pour des défenseurs d’enfant, dans le but de prendre connaissance des noms des jeunes qui étaient prêts à témoigner.

Quelques semaines plus tard, après l’arrestation de Douglas Perlitz, j’ai reçu un appel de Paul Kendrick, m’informant de la connexion de Douglas Perlitz avec Ron Voss, un ancien prêtre américain qui avait avoué ses abus sexuels contre des enfants aux Etats-Unis. Ce Ron Voss avait lui aussi fuit les Etats-Unis, avec l’aide de l’Eglise catholique américaine pour se refugier en Haïti. Il était responsable de la maison d’Accueil, « The visitation Home », de Delmas 31, appelée «Mathieu 25 ». Un point d’accueil pour tous les missionnaires catholiques américains qui, fraichement arrivés en Haïti, y séjournent quelques mois, pour apprendre le créole et des consignes de survie, avant de s’aventurer dans les villes et/ou villages reculés du pays.

Kendrick m’informe que des militants américains qui combattent la pédophilie à l’intérieur de l’Eglise catholique condamnent les pratiques de l’Eglise catholique Américaine qui utilisent les pays du Sud et/ou pays pauvres comme Haïti, avec un Etat faible, pour cacher les prêtres et/ou religieux poursuivis pour abus sexuels sur mineurs. Douglas Perlitz qui avait lui aussi séjourné à « Mathieu 25 », était un bon ami de Ron Voss. En 2005, une lettre a été adressée au Ministre de la justice d’Haïti, Bernard Gousse, qui a eu le courage de mettre ce Ron Voss aux arrêts. Malheureusement, avec l’évasion du Pénitencier national, l’ancien prêtre pédophile a eu la possibilité de s’échapper et de quitter Haïti. On ne sait plus où il se cache. On rapporte qu’il réside dans l’une des iles Bahamas…

En 2009, un ami nous parle d’un cas de pédophilie à Delmas 91. Un diplomate, lui avait demandé de me conseiller d’aller voir dans ce coin. Car, on rapporte une situation de pédophilie et d’exploitation sexuelle des enfants logés à cette enseigne. Il semble ne pas apprécier, la façon dont certains de ses collègues influents protègent ce citoyen américain en Haïti.

Nous avions répondu en exprimant nos limites en ressources humaines et financières. Le dossier Perlitz consommait déjà toutes nos ressources – des ressources familiales, vu qu’en Haïti aucune institution ne finance ce genre de travail. Nous avions 24 jeunes sous le dos. Des enfants abandonnés à supporter jour et nuit pour des histoires comme : nourriture, soins de santé, sécurité, protection, défense face aux abus de la police, hébergement temporaire en cas de menace de mort, frais scolaires pour ceux qui continuaient d’aller à l’école. Haïti, n’ayant pas les infrastructures pour la prise en charge et la protection des victimes et des témoins pour des cas aussi sensibles, nous étions obligés de tout fournir, avec le peu de ressources familiales que nous avions (la paie de ma femme, l’aide de mon père, l’assistance de ma mère), pour aider les jeunes victimes à rester debout. Car, sachant que, la maitrise du prédateur sexuel sur sa proie passe par des menaces physiques, psychologiques, mais surtout économiques – en Haïti, avec l’aide de quelques contributeurs, je me suis efforcé d’apporter un certain support aux victimes.

[Une nouvelle distribution de nourriture en faveur des victimes de Douglas Perlitz. ]

[Perlitz Victims Receive Aid With Alum Visit ]

Faut-il signaler qu’après plusieurs dizaines d’interviews sur plusieurs cas différents, nous réalisons que les prédateurs sexuels étrangers menacent les enfants victimes en ces termes : « Si tu parles, ta vie redeviendra comme avant ; personne ne te croira, Tu seras accusé de mensonge puis expulsé de l’orphelinat ; Tu retourneras dans la rue ; Plus de possibilité d’aller à l’école ; Tu ferais mieux d’accepter en silence ; Tu n’arriveras pas à avoir gain de cause en face de moi , car je suis un blanc riche et toi un petit gamin de rue avec un passé de délinquant».

Ce fut, cinq (5) années d’enfer pour un journaliste qui doit se réveiller très tôt parce que 24 jeunes sont en quête de tout. Tandis que, dans ce genre de situation, le bourreau pédophile reçoit tous les supports des amis et flatteurs de partout, pourvus en ressources. De plus, on s’arrange pour mettre à sa disposition une campagne de communication capable de protéger son image, tout en discréditant les victimes, en cherchant à casser le moral de tous ceux qui osent exiger justice et réparation. Ignorant – volontairement – que les abus subis par les enfants sont la cause des troubles de comportement qui les affectent, leur casier judicaire est, régulièrement, exhibé pour prouver qu’ils ne sont pas dignes de foi.

En décembre 2010, Douglas Perlitz est condamné à environ 20 ans de prison. Anderson Cooper, diffuse un reportage complet sur le dossier. Un mois plus tard, je reçois un appel d’une américaine, sollicitant le même engagement que nous avions eu dans le dossier Perlitz, en faveur des jeunes victimes de l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91.

[Orphan Predator : Haiti Street Orphans Abused. ]

Cette conversation par téléphone nous a permis, dans un premier temps, de remémorer l’invitation du diplomate, lancée à nous, par l’intermédiaire de notre ami commun. Dans un 2e temps, lors de notre visite à Port-au-Prince, à la fin du mois de février 2011, nous avions séjourné au « The visitation Home » communément appelé « Mathieu 25 », et là, nous avions compris la main mise de pédophiles américains sur ce point focal et son rôle en terme d’interconnexion. Consultant certains documents concernant l’Orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Monsieur Geilenfeld, nous avons vu le nom de John Duarte, un ancien prête canadien, arrêté en République Dominicaine pour crime de pédophilie en Haïti. John Duarte qui avait abusé plusieurs enfants haïtiens, dirigeait avec Michael Geilenfeld l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91.

[ John Duarte & Geilenfeld 2 religieux dits pédophiles, dirigeaient un orphelinat en Haiti.- ]

[Ex-Windsor priest John Duarte arrested for alleged child sex abuse in Haiti.]

[ Ex-Windsor priest arrested for sex abuse in Haiti. ]

Il y a aussi Michael Brewer et Phillip Norris, deux hommes suspectés de pédophilie, qui fréquentaient les maisons d’accueil de Michael Geilenfeld orphelinats de qui fréquentaient les maisons d’accueil de Michael Geilenfeld. On rapporte un mouvement de protestation des habitants de Fermathe contre certaines pratiques pédophiles de Phillips Norris qui utilisait une maison d’accueil pour enfants handicapés que dirigeait Michael Geilenfed pour abuser les enfants et les jeunes de cette localité de la zone métropolitaine d’Haïti. Aujourd’hui, Bishop Phillips Norris mène une vie de couple homosexuel en Angleterre avec Alex, l’un de ces jeunes de Fermathe.

[Hounded out of town for being black and gay. ]

Nous avions ainsi établi la connexion Ron Voss + Douglas Perlitz = John Duarte + Michael Geilenfed. Tous des religieux catholiques américains, ayant une certaine connexion avec « The visitation Home », « Mathieu 25 » que dirigeait Ron Voss ; tous rodant autour des orphelinats comme missionnaires responsables ; tous ayant à leurs actifs des allégations et/ou des accusations de crime de pédophilie ; tous connectés à des pédophiles ou à des personnalités faisant l’apologie de relation sexuelle entre Adultes et mineurs.

En effet, lors des funérailles de Tom Reeves, l’un des américains fondateurs de NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association), une organisation qui milite pour la réforme des lois interdisant les relations sexuelles entre adultes et enfants, l’organisation a ordonné qu’en guise de fleurs, les sympathisants et amis contribuent en faveur de l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91.

[ Haiti : Liens entre l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph et NAMBLA, une organisation pro-pédophilie. ]

A ce niveau, notre hypothèse de recherche, est conçue : « Un réseau de pédophiles catholiques américains s’est réfugié en Haïti, utilisant les orphelinats comme espace privilégié pour exploiter sexuellement les enfants vulnérables en situation de pauvreté. »

L’empreinte de l’Eglise catholique Américaine – La Conférence de Evêques Américains, USCCB (US Conference of Catholic Bishops):

Après l’arrestation de Douglas Perlitz, les victimes et le journaliste Cyrus Sibert ont eu droit à la visite de deux haïtiens travaillant pour le compte de CRS (Catholique Reliefs Service) : Une haïtienne du nom de Mrs Sheyla Maximilian (Biamby), cadre de CRS et Stéphane Trouillot, un employé de la compagnie haïtienne de « PAP-Sécurité ».

Ils ont visité ce qui restait de Pierre Toussaint, ont rencontré le staff du projet et les enfants victimes, ils ont aussi rencontré Cyrus Sibert à l’Hôtel ”Auberge du Picolet”, dans le but de rassurer que des mesures allaient être prises pour supporter les victimes. Depuis, nous sommes restés sans nouvelle de ces deux personnalités.

Ce n’est que quelques mois plus tard, nous avons appris que la dame avait comme mission d’évaluer la situation pour permettre à l’Eglise Catholique Américaine de mieux se désengager et quant à l’agent de Sécurité de « PAP-Sécurité », de faire disparaître des preuves. Le coffre de Douglas Perlitz, a ainsi été récupéré pour être placé dans un bateau à destination des Etats-Unis. Le tout, après que Madame Carter, membre de l’Ordre de Malte, eut emporté l’ordinateur portable de Douglas Perlitz qui contenait des données compromettantes et des informations embarrassantes.

En janvier 2010, quelques heures avant le tremblement de terre dévastateur qui a détruit la capitale haïtienne, Paul Kendrick attira notre attention sur le fait que la carte de visite que Madame Maximilian avait comme mention, en rouge « USCCB : US Conference of Catholic Bishops ».

[ CRS – CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICE does not protect children against sex offenders. No background check for missionaries or employees, no policy to prevent pedophilia in Haiti. ]

Support politique en d’Haïti:

Plus loin, nous avons découvert que ce réseau est rentré en Haïti à partir des années 80. Des pédophiles de l’Eglise Catholique Américaine ont profité des troubles politiques d’après Duvalier pour renforcer leur établissement dans le pays. Le coup d’Etat de 1991 et l’embargo qui s’en est suivi ont rendu les façades d’activités humanitaires indispensables. Les parents et les enfants étaient devenus plus dépendants, les officiers de l’Etat, les superviseurs de IBERS, les responsables de la police et de la justice, y voyaient une source d’opportunités (visas, bourses et pots de vin).

Ces hommes ont cherché à côtoyer le régime Lavalas. Ron Voss, Douglas Perlitz et Michael Geilenfed ont, tous, eu de bonnes relations avec le Président Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Le prêtre exilé, en quête de supports pour retourner dans son pays, n’a pas pris le temps nécessaire pour évaluer ces missionnaires pédophiles qui s’efforçaient à se montrer généreux et bons. Certains ont connu le Centre d’Accueil LA FANMI SE LAVI, d’autres sont allés jusqu’à manifester devant l’Ambassade des Etats-Unis en faveur du retour de la démocratie. Ils ont adopté toute une stratégie pour se rapprocher du pouvoir d’Etat, de la bourgeoisie et des diplomates influents en poste en Haïti, en vue de continuer à opérer tranquillement dans le pays.

Comme nous l’avons mentionné plus haut, nos recherches nous ont permis de découvrir que l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph est lié à une organisation américaine qui prône les relations sexuelles entre les adultes et les enfants. Lors des funérailles de Tom Reeves, le leader de l’organisation NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association), qui milite pour la réforme des lois interdisant les relations sexuelles entre adultes et enfants et dont l’organisation avait réclamé qu’en guise de fleurs, des sympathisants et amis contribuent en faveur de l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91, entretenait de bonnes relations avec Jean-Bertrand Aristide, le leader du mouvement Lavalas. Dans le pamphlet présentant sa biographie, l’organisation vante le fait que leur leader avait lui aussi rencontré le Président Jean-Bertrand Aristide, au Palais National.

[ Haiti : Liens entre l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph et NAMBLA, une organisation pro-pédophilie. ]

Il y aussi ce extrait du livre “Notes from the Last Testament: The struggle for Haiti, de Michael Deibert” :
” The Catholic peace movement Pax Christi also continued to voice its support for Aristide, partially as a result of their chief liaison in Haiti, Ron Voss. Voss, an accused fugitive pedophile American priest from Indiana who had settled in Haiti after fleeing the United States and, many said, likely child molestation charges, for his loyality was rewarded by being allowed to live in one of Antoine Izmery’s old homes, which he dubbed “the visitation house,” and where he frequently held court surrounded by groups of young street boys. It was a sad state of affairs for a leader who had been able to rally such pervasive support during his 1991-1993 exile.”

Il y a aussi cet message-email que nous avons reçu – par erreur – du conseil d’administration du projet de Michael Geilenfeld, dans lequel il est dit clairement qu’un officier de la diplomatie américaine en poste en Haïti, supporte l’accusé et fait tout pour décourager les victimes.

[Haiti-Pedophile: U.S. diplomats protect a pedophile. (Evidence) ]

Ce qui explique pourquoi tous les mouvements de protestation organisés par les jeunes de Saint-Joseph, pour protester contre les pratiques d’abus sexuels ont toujours été avortés. La police, la Justice et l’IBESR n’aident pas les victimes qui n’ont d’autre choix que de retourner implorer le pardon de leur bourreau.

L’engagement Paul Kendrick-IGNATIUS GROUP/ Cyrus Sibert-ReseauCitadelle:

Depuis mars 2011, avec notre décision d’accompagner ces jeunes haïtiens qui réclament justice, nous avons changé la donne. Depuis cette date, nous sommes en lutte avec ce réseau puissant avec toutes ses ramifications en Haïti comme à l’étranger. Il y a plusieurs mois que des victimes et témoins de partout déposent sous serment devant des officiers de la justice américaine ; au mois de février 2014, l’IBESR a décidé de fermer l’orphelinat Saint-Joseph de Delmas 91 démontrant au grand public que Michael Geilenfeld faisait fonctionner illégalement un centre d’accueil pour enfants en Haïti ; au mois de mars 2014, des victimes ont déposé une plainte formelle devant la justice haïtienne. Le dossier a été confié au juge d’instruction Al Duniel Dimanche.


Les victimes ayant repris confiance dans leur combat pour la justice, c’est la panique dans le camp des supporters de l’accusé. Aujourd’hui, ils font feu de tout bois, ils cherchent à détruire les victimes et leurs supporters. Ils croient pouvoir présenter la décision de rechercher justice et réparation comme un comportement déloyal.

Nous souhaitons que les autorités haïtiennes puissent comprendre les enjeux et la situation de ces jeunes victimes harcelés chaque jour par ces étrangers qui se croient tout permis sur la terre de Dessalines. Ces jeunes qui ont été abusés physiquement, sexuellement et moralement, ces jeunes qui aujourd’hui voient leur vie brisée par la faute de prédateurs sexuels – criminels – qui, à un moment de la vie leur avaient traité comme objet de leur désir, méritent justice. Et ce sera un message fort lancé à tous les autres réseaux pédophiles qui comprendront qu’Haïti n’est plus leur terre promise.

See the original article written in French at:

For several weeks, the defense strategy Geilenfeld Michael, Director of the St. Joseph Orphanage accused of the crime of pedophilia, is to build false testimony in order to discredit those who claim that truth and justice are made on sexual exploitation and pedophilia within the shelter of Delmas 91, Haiti, he directs accusations.

The human rights activist, Paul Kendrick and investigative journalist Cyrus Sibert represent them, two people discrediting, destroying their image in the eyes of the Federal Court in Portland, Maine and the general public. Because, on 5 May 2014, the case will be heard before a federal judge American. Who filed a complaint against Paul Kendrick for defamation, Michael Geilenfed opened a Pandora’s box, reviving the spirit of justice of a large number of victims and witnesses.

Being in trouble with the testimony of more and more embarrassing, held everywhere around the world – from Haiti, the United States, to England, testimonials, often in the presence of the accused, of people reporting openly being abused by the Director of the St. Joseph Orphanage Delmas 91 – the last resort for defenders Michael Geilenfeld is, to attack, not the allegations against him, but those who have the courage to report and especially the duo Sibert-Kendrick, without which the case would be ignored, as usual.

In a country where the poor people struggling with poverty are defenseless against powerful criminals, foreign filled big international connections and especially within the Catholic Church, as an abuser Michael Geilenfeld can easily intimidate victims to the point of wearing one of them, Marc Louis who said freely before our cameras he had been sodomized by Michael Geilenfeld to change his testimony and cry foul. Marc Louis has testified that he lied; he was squeezed by Cyrus Sibert of lying; pressures that have taken on the appearance of intimidation; journalist Cyrus Sibert, would have given a piece of paper, telling him he had to make statements against the director of the orphanage Saint-Joseph Delmas 91.

We invite you to look solemn registration Marc Karl Louis and judge if reading a paper. In this video you will see that the man told his story with details of what happened to him, places and people in the United States who were aware of his situation.

This is also the situation of a young man who lives in the St. Joseph orphanage in Delmas 91, who wrote a paper in which he says he received an invitation to Cyrus Sibert who sought to meet September 16, 2013 to force him to testify against Michael Geilenfeld in exchange for money and pledge. The statement is dated 14 February 2014. Its author claims to have been pursued, day by Cyrus Sibert, who accompanied two other victims in a car.

A bunch of lies designed to discredit those who claim that a thorough investigation is carried out on the orphanage in Delmas 91 victims who complained or heard by the justice; that the Haitian State to adopt precautionary measures to protect Haitian children and vulnerable people affected by this issue.

We reassure all those who support this campaign for truth and justice, that:

1 – We are able to prove that Marc Louis was relaxed and had decided without pressure to make his statement. What Geilenfeld did not know, we recorded Marc Louis since his arrival in the hotel where he met other victims of St. Joseph, in an atmosphere of reunion room; and he had other victims recalled the abuses they had experienced together. These free trade gave us the idea to propose to record, video, a solemn statement of all the facts he had told other victims. This proposal was a test of the seriousness of his accusations against Michael Geilenfed. The said video was used in case Marc Louis would be in trouble with the minions Geilenfeld. This was done when at the beginning of February 2014, Michael was Geilenfeld increase pressure on its victims and Marc Louis, was found;

2 – We can prove that September 16, 2013, we were not in Haiti, but movement in the U.S. city of Orlando, Florida, where we had made transactions until our return to Cap-Haitien by airline flight IBC Airways, September 18, 2013. So Cyrus Sibert could not invite a young St. Joseph to meet him at a date that was not available in Haiti for this meeting. In addition, the youth reported that question was followed February 14, 2014 by a car and Cyrus Sibert was in this car. We can prove that February 14, 2014, we were not in Port-au-Prince. Cyrus Sibert has never met or spoken to this young man.

However, if the defenders of the accused are busy looking for witnesses, supporters of the victims also have the right to search for victims and witnesses who can provide additional evidence to confirm or refute certain points . We will not let ourselves be intimidated by those who physically, sexually and mentally abused children. We will continue to roam the planet in search of anyone wishing to testify about the situation at the orphanage Saint-Joseph Delmas 91.

Plus, Geilenfeld and his gang try to get rid of the charges against them, the more they complicate their situation and prove that they have something to hide. This construction of perjury against complainants, witnesses and cons against supporters of victims is an outrageous act that proves the level of evil people running the orphanage Saint-Joseph Delmas 91.

These people are real crooks who lied to the American contributors, telling them they are in good standing with the Haitian government, while for several years, St. Joseph orphanages operate without authorization IBESR (Institute Welfare Social), the state body responsible for monitoring this kind of institution. Fortunately, in February 2014, the Haitian government has finally decided to close this rotten house. Today, one of the lawyers of Michael J. Geilenfeld this Lady Arielle Villedrouin, the director of the IBESR as a person unable to decide.


[Ms. Arielle J. Villedrouin, of IBESR, can not think for Herself: ]

[Contents of the letter IBESR ordonant the closure of the St. Joseph Orphanage of Delmas 91. -ordonant.html ]

Hypothesis of investigation:

We take this text to communicate to the public the research hypothesis which is the basis of our motivation in this case.

In August 2008, a Haitian national operating in the Diaspora, visited the city of Cap-Haitien. As usual, he brings gifts for street children begging on the boulevard. In a conversation with them, he learned that children are abused in the orphanage Project Pierre Toussaint, a Welcome Centre for street children in the suburbs that led Douglas Perlitz, an American Catholic missionary. Shocked, the man reported testimony to a friend Capois, wondering how it might be possible in the eyes of state authorities responsible for overseeing such a project? His interlocutor reassures him that he knows a journalist with integrity, capable of denouncing this intolerable situation.

It was August 15, 2007, I moved into the area by car careening, when a hand gesture, a friend motioned me to stop, telling his interlocutor: “” Speak of the devil, we see his tail,” Cyrus here. ” They told me the allegations received. I told them that we often hear these rumors in the city. However, I can write an article on this subject, I need victims and witnesses … “Several victims and several witnesses … a butterfly does not make a summer”

So I met with victims who agreed to testify. I could be sources to inform me of the actions of the accused, sources of control too. Finally, I decided to write an essay denouncing the practices of sexual abuse, without naming names or institution.

[Cap-Haitien, the pedophile and shelter for street children: ]

Several investigations have been conducted subsequently Perlitz was forced to flee Haiti. Finally, he was arrested by ICE and Homeland Security, two American institutions will responsible for applying the law against all U.S. citizens traveling with the aim of engaging in sex with minors.

A few weeks before the arrest of Douglas Perlitz, with the rise of pressure from American justice against the accused, Paul Kendrick contacted me to ask if I had” strong evidence to support the charge.” I was suspicious. Because I was afraid that supporters of pedophile, not posing as defenders of children, in order to read the names of the students who were willing to testify.

A few weeks later, after the arrest of Douglas Perlitz, I received a call from Paul Kendrick, informing me of the connection Douglas Perlitz with Ron Voss, a former U.S. priest who had confessed his sexual abuse against children to USA. This Ron Voss had also fled the United States, with the help of the American Catholic Church to take refuge in Haiti. He was responsible for the house of Home, “The Home visitation” of Delmas 31, called “Matthew 25”. A reception point for all U.S. Catholic missionaries who, newly arrived in Haiti, stay a few months to learn Creole and instructions survival, before venturing into the cities and / or remote villages.

Kendrick tells me that American activists fighting pedophilia within the Catholic Church condemn the practices of the American Catholic Church who use the South and / or poor countries like Haiti, with a weak state, for hide priests and / or religious prosecuted for sexual abuse of minors. Douglas Perlitz who had also stayed at “Matthew 25” was a good friend of Ron Voss. In 2005, a letter was addressed to the Minister of Justice of Haiti, Bernard Gousse, who had the courage to put this Ron Voss stops. Unfortunately, the escape from the National Penitentiary, the former pedophile priest was given the opportunity to escape and leave Haiti. We do not know where he is hiding. It is reported that resides in one of the islands Bahamas …

Read the letter addressed to U.S. activists Minister Bernard Gousse concernat Ron Voss

For more information about the pedophile priest Ron Voss, see the following links :

In 2009, a friend tells of a case of pedophilia in Delmas 91. A diplomat had asked him to advise me to go in this area. For a situation of pedophilia and sexual exploitation of children staying at this establishment are reported. It seems not to appreciate the way some of his influential colleagues who protect this American citizen in Haiti.

We responded by expressing our limited human and financial resources. Perlitz the folder already consumed all our resources – family resources, since in Haiti no institution finance this kind of work. We had 24 youth in the back. Abandoned to support day and night to stories like children: food, health care, security, protection, defense against police abuse, temporary accommodation in case of threat of death, school fees for those who continued to go to school. Haiti does not have the infrastructure to support and protection of victims and witnesses in cases as sensitive, we were obliged to provide anything with the little resources we had family (pay my wife the help of my father, my mother’s assistance) to help young victims to stand. For knowing the mastery of sexual predator on its prey through physical, psychological threats, but especially economic – in Haiti, with the help of some contributors, I have tried to provide some support to victims.

[A new food distribution to victims of Douglas Perlitz. ]

[Perlitz Victims Receive Aid With Alum Visit ]

Should be reported after dozens of interviews over several different cases, we realize that sexual predators threaten foreign child victims in these words: “If you speak, your life ever be the same; no one will believe you, You will be accused of lying and then expelled from the orphanage; You will return in the street; More opportunity to go to school; You better accept in silence; You will not succeed to succeed in front of me because I was a little kid and you rue a rich white with a delinquent past. ”

It was five (5) years of hell for a journalist who has to wake up early because 24 young people are looking for it. While in this situation, the executioner pedophile receives all media friends and flatterers everywhere resourced. In addition, it manages to make available a communication campaign can protect his image, while discrediting the victims, seeking to break the morale of all those who dare to demand justice and reparations. Ignorant – voluntarily – that abuse suffered by children are the cause behavioral problems that affect them, their criminal record is regularly exhibited to prove they are not reliable.

In December 2010, Douglas Perlitz was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Anderson Cooper broadcasts a full report on the case. A month later, I received a call from an American, seeking the same commitment that we had in the Perlitz case, for young victims of St. Joseph orphanage in Delmas 91.

[Orphan Predator. Haiti Street Orphans Abused ]

This phone conversation helped us in the first instance, to recall the invitation of the diplomat, launched at us, through our mutual friend. In a second time during our visit to Port-au-Prince, at the end of February 2011, we had stayed at “The Home visitation” commonly called “Matthew 25”, and then we understood the grip U.S. pedophiles on this focal point and its role in terms of interconnection. Looking documents concerning St. Joseph Orphanage Mr. Geilenfeld we saw the name of John Duarte, a former Canadian ready arrested in Dominican Republic for the crime of pedophilia in Haiti. John Duarte who had abused several Haitian children, directed with Michael Geilenfeld Orphanage St. Joseph Delmas 91.

[John Duarte & Geilenfeld 2 called religious pedophiles ran an orphanage in Haiti -. ]

[Ex-Windsor priest John Duarte Arrested for Alleged child sex abuse in Haiti. ]

[Ex-Windsor priest arrested This is for sex abuse in Haiti. ]

There is also Michael Brewer and Phillip Norris, two men suspected of pedophilia, who attended shelters Michael Geilenfeld orphanages who frequented the home of Michael Geilenfeld houses. A protest against the inhabitants of Fermathe some pedophilia Phillips Norris used a home for disabled children that led Michael Geilenfed to abuse children and young people in this town in the metropolitan area of ​​Haiti is reported. Today, Bishop Phillips Norris lives as a gay couple in England with Alex, one of these young Fermathe.

[Hounded out of town for Being black and gay. ]

We have thus established the connection Voss Ron Douglas Perlitz = John + Duarte + Michael Geilenfed. All American Catholic religious, having some connection with “The Home visitation”, “Matthew 25” that led Ron Voss; all loitering orphanages as missionaries responsible; all having their assets from claims and / or criminal charges of pedophilia; all connected to pedophiles or personalities advocating sexual relations between adults and minors.

Indeed, at the funeral of Tom Reeves, one of the founders of NAMBLA (North American Man / Boy Love Association) U.S., an organization that advocates for reform of laws prohibiting sexual relations between adults and children, the organization ordered that instead of flowers, friends and supporters for helping the orphanage Saint-Joseph Delmas 91.

[Haiti: Linking St. Joseph Orphanage and NAMBLA, an organization pro-pédophilie. ]

At this level, our research hypothesis is designed: “A network of pedophiles American Catholics fled to Haiti using orphanages as a privileged space to sexually exploit vulnerable children living in poverty.

The footprint of the American Catholic Church – The Conference of Bishops Americans USCCB (U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops)

After the arrest of Douglas Perlitz, victims and journalist Cyrus Sibert were treated to a visit from two Haitian working for CRS (Catholic Relief Service): A Haitian named Mrs. Sheyla Maximilian (Biamby) framework CRS and Stéphane Trouillot, a Haitian employee of the company “PAP-Security.”

They visited what remained of Pierre Toussaint, met with project staff and child victims, they also met Cyrus Sibert at Hotel Auberge du Picolet””, in order to reassure that measures would be taken to support victims. Since we were without news of these two personalities.

It was only a few months later, we learned that the lady had a mission to assess the situation to allow the American Catholic Church better disengage and about the agent Security “PAP-Security” , to eliminate evidence. The trunk of Douglas Perlitz, has been recovered to be placed in a boat to the United States. All after Ms. Carter, a member of the Order of Malta, had carried the laptop Douglas Perlitz containing incriminating data and embarrassing information.

In January 2010, a few hours before the devastating earthquake that destroyed the Haitian capital, Paul Kendrick drew our attention to the fact that the card that Mrs. Maximilian was as stated, in red “USCCB: U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ .

[CRS – CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICE Does not protect children against sex offenders. No background check for missionaries or employed, no policy to Prevent pedophilia in Haiti. ]

Political support of Haiti:

Later, we discovered that this network is returned to Haiti from 80. Pedophiles American Catholic Church took advantage of political turmoil after Duvalier to enhance their business in the country. The 1991 coup and the embargo that ensued made the facades of essential humanitarian activities. Parents and children had become more dependent on the state officials, supervisors IBERS, the police officials and justice, saw it as a source of opportunities (visas, scholarships and bribes).

These men wanted to be with the Lavalas regime. Ron Voss, Michael Douglas Perlitz and Geilenfed have all had good relations with President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. The priest exiled in search of support to return to his country, has not taken the necessary time to evaluate these pedophiles missionaries who tried to be generous and good. Some have experienced the Welcome Center THE FANMI SE LAVI, others went to protest outside the Embassy of the United States for the return of democracy. They adopted a strategy to approach the state power of the bourgeoisie and influential diplomats in Haiti, to continue to operate quietly in the country.

As we mentioned earlier, our research we discovered that the St. Joseph Orphanage is linked to a U.S. organization that advocates sex between adults and children. At the funeral of Tom Reeves, the leader of the organization NAMBLA (North American Man / Boy Love Association), which campaigns for the reform of laws prohibiting sexual relations between adults and children and the organization had called that way flowers, friends and supporters for helping the orphanage Saint-Joseph Delmas 91, had a good relationship with Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the leader of the Lavalas movement. In the pamphlet with his biography, the organization boasts that their leader had also met with President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the National Palace.

[Haiti: Linking St. Joseph Orphanage and NAMBLA, an organization pro-pédophilie. ]

There is also this excerpt from the book “Notes from the Last Testament: The Struggle for Haiti by Michael Deibert”:
“The Catholic peace movement Pax Christi aussi icts Continued to voice carrier for Aristide Partially as a result of Their chief liaison in Haiti Ron Voss. Voss, an Accused fugitive pedophile American priest from Indiana Have you HAD-settled in Haiti Effective fleeing the United States and, Many Said, Likely child molestation charges, for His loyality WAS Rewarded by Being allowed to live in one of Antoine Izmery’s old homes, All which he dubbed “the house visitation,” Where he and Frequently Held court surrounded by groups of young street boys. It was a sad state of affairs for a leader Have you HAD beens ble to rally Such pervasive media falling on His exile 1991-1993.”

There is also this post-email we received – by mistake – Board Michael Geilenfeld project, in which it is clear that a U.S. diplomatic officer stationed in Haiti, support the accused and does everything to discourage victims.

[Haiti-Pedophile: U.S. diplomats protect a pedophile. (Evidence) ]

This explains why all the protests organized by youth of St. Joseph, to protest against the practices of sexual abuse have been aborted. Police, Justice and IBESR do not help the victims who have no choice but to return to implore forgiveness for their torturer.

Commitment Paul Kendrick IGNATIUS GROUP / Cyrus Sibert-ReseauCitadelle:

Since March 2011, our decision to support these young Haitians seeking justice, we changed that. Since then, we struggle with this powerful network with all its ramifications in Haiti and abroad. There are several months of victims and witnesses under oath before all the officers of the American justice; in February 2014 IBESR decided to close the orphanage Saint-Joseph Delmas 91 showing the public that Michael was operating illegally Geilenfeld a center for children in Haiti; in March 2014 victims have filed a formal complaint with the Haitian justice. The case was assigned to Judge Al Duniel Sunday.


Victims who have regained confidence in their struggle for justice is panic in the camp of supporters of the accused. Today, they are firing on all cylinders, they seek to destroy the victims and their supporters. They think they can present the decision to seek justice and reparation as unfair behavior.

We hope that the Haitian authorities to understand the issues and the situation of these young victims harassed daily by those foreigners who believe that everything is permitted on the land of Dessalines. These young people who have been abused physically, sexually and morally, these young people today see their shattered by the lack of sexual predators life – criminals – who at one point in life they had treated as the object of their desire, deserve justice . And it will be a strong message to all other pedophile who understand that Haiti is not their promised land.

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. –

But you can’t fool all the people all the time.”

Mais vous ne pouvez pas tromper tout le monde tout le temps.

In a complaint filed in U.S. Federal Court on Monday, March 31, 2014, lawyers in Portland, ME who are representing Haiti orphanage director, Michael Geilenfeld, are accusing long time child protection advocate, Paul Kendrick, of attempting to get Attorney Kelly Hoffman of Norman, Hansen & DeTroy fired from her position as Waynflete School’s Head Field Hockey Coach.

Ms. Hoffman is one of several attorneys representing U.S. citizen, Michael Geilenfeld, Director of the St. Joseph’s Family of Homes in Port au Prince, Haiti.

Geilenfeld is accused of sexually abusing poor and vulnerable street kids who were in his care at the orphanage.
“With these emails, Kendrick sought to have an attorney at Norman, Hanson & DeTroy, LLC who also coaches field hockey at Waynflete removed from her position there,” says the complaint.

Students who attend the prestigious Waynflete School are the same ages as were the Haitian men who are testifying that they were sexually abused by Geilenfeld.

According to Waynflete School’s attorney, Patricia Peard, Waynflete School officials have “not made any statement about Mr. Kendrick.”

Charity is something we do for ourselves.  Justice is something we do for others.

I am indeed no au fait of justice or charity.  Some say there is nothing new under the sun.  Yet every now again, I hear a thought that is fresh.  New.  At least to me.  All ideas have existed from the beginning;  we just apply them in different ways.

I am a big fan of “On Being“, Krista Tippett, a radio program produced by American Public Media.  The show began as “Speaking of Faith”.  I have been listening to the show since its beginning.  When Tippett first started, I thought of her diction and emphasis in the same breath as Ofeibea Quist-Arcton of NPR.  Quist-Arcton had a wonderful way of saying “Dakar”.  She has pulled back a bit, probably because of her renown.  Here is someone’s description of Quist-Arcton’s tag line:

NPR listeners, anyone else love how Ofeibea Quist-Arcton says Dakar?

Any NPR listeners out there notice this: when NPR correspondent Ofeibea Quist-Arcton is
reporting from Dakar, she doesn’t just end her piece with – “Ofeibea
Quist-Arcton, reporting from Dakar.” No it’s, “Ofeibea Quist-Arcton DakAAAAAAAAr! “Is it just me? I love how she says it.
I know it’s her Ghana roots coming out in her accent, but it usually
comes out loud and in force, sometimes her endings are more powerful
than her story’s – but I love it!

When I first listened to Tippett, she seemed to pronounce the 4 t’s and 3 p’s in her name.  She too has pulled back a bit.

What do they have in common.  They are both excellent journalists.

In 2010, “Speaking of Faith” changed its name to “On Being”.  The September 9, 2010 show entitled “From Faith To Being” was a retrospective

a retrospective show examining how Speaking of Faith has grown into its spacious new name, Being.  We hear the voices and stories of our many guestsw and listeners who have participated in this conversation on faith, meaning, ethics, and ideas.

The quote I started off with came in the segment entitled “Seeing Poverty After Katrina”.  The quote is not exact.  Well, the first sentence, I believe is dead on accurate – “Charity is something we do for ourselves”.  Yet the second sentence – “Justice is something we do for others” – is my re-wording.

This statement impacted me because I have been advocating for children in Haiti who have allegedly been sexually abused by the founder of the orphanage in which they live.  Not unlike Sandusky, Jerry Saville, and countless others, supporters of Michael Geilenfeld (the accused abuser), cannot believe that he is committing this abuse.

When Doug Perlitz was convicted of sexually abusing the children at the orphanage that he founded, Project Pierre Toussaint, Perlitz spoke at the sentencing phase of his trial:

Perlitz, 40, apologized to his victims while speaking in Creole before
the sentence was handed down. He said he knew his crimes were horrible
but pleaded for leniency nevertheless, asking the judge to consider the
good work he did in the impoverished Caribbean nation.

The judge gave Perlitz a 20 year sentence he is now serving.

Yet, is this the Justice that David Hilfiker was speaking of in Seeing Poverty after Katrina?  Probably not.

I do think Perlitz deserved to go to jail.  I don’t question the judge’s decision.  Yet what was left out was changing the structures for the people in Haiti, and all the around the world, that provide the opportunity to people like Doug Perlitz, John Duarte, and allegedly Michael Geilenfeld, to subjugate the weak to their whims of pleasure, no matter how much charity they have created.
