Charges not dropped by Haiti against the 9 or Silsby

Judge Bernard Saint-Vil said today that the legal fate of Laura Silsby, who is still in jail, and that of the nine who have been freeded has not been decided,” the Associated Press reported a short time ago.

Haitian Attorney General Joseph Manes said earlier that all of the charges stand, CNN reporte, “until the examining judge rendered his final decision on whether to proceed to trial.”

U.S. Sen Jim Risch, R-Idaho, whose staff said Thursday that charges had been dropped, responded:

We are standing by what we were orginally told by the State Department. We did, however, ask the State Department to reconfirm for us, and we are waiting that response.

Clearly, the senator’s staff has been overruled.

  1. It’s interesting to read that some of the abuse that children received under Catholic Church care occurred while they were actually in an orphanage and not after they had been placed in foster homes. Wouldn’t that be a rotten shame.
