Eberwein, who had acknowledged his life was in danger, was a fierce critic of the Clinton Foundation’s activities in the Caribbean island, where he served as director general of the government’s economic development agency
During his five years in office from 2011 to 2016, Pres. Martelly, his cronies, and his family are believed to have looted some $2 billion from the Petrocaribe account through bogus development projects which did not in fact help Haitians. In 2013, Martelly admitted that Venezuela provided 94% of Haiti’s total investment funds.
In recent weeks, the original Fort National project has come under scrutiny as a Haiti Senate Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission raises questions about the awards, and Bautista’s relationships with Martelly and some Haitian officials. Headed by Sen. Youri Latortue, a one-time Martelly adviser, the probe is supposed to focus on a decade’s worth of government disbursements under Venezuela’s Petrocaribe discounted-oil program. Most of the focus, however, has been on the already investigated Bautista contracts.
