Read this thread. Update up Joseph Baptiste case I'm following. 👇
This is the article I did back in April. Court is coming up in December for Baptiste. My eyes are on it.…
New indictment in this case.…
A clip from my article... Richard Boncy, one of the board members I named. One down. Who else might this lead to? Names and additional connections are in my article.…
Read the print at the bottom of this clip from my article, "this one is a lock." Now review all names and connections in this article. 👆More indictments are coming. @realDonaldTrump @mflynnJR @GenFlynn @CharlesOrtel
Baptiste & Boncy #Haiti bribery case: I have reviewed the new indictment on Boncy and compared to the original indictment on Baptiste. It would appear as though they merged them into a single case/indictment, repeating the same info, but adding Boncy. However...
There are additional court docs pertaining to arguments in thread below. Links to both indictments can be found in my April article, as well as the players and their involvement, connections, and updated info throughout this process.…
10/31: The government filed a Motion in Limine on the admissibility of the defendant’s signed statement of facts. Joseph Baptiste singed a statement of facts as part of a plea agreement and later breached it. They wish to use the statement/facts in opening statements at trial.
10/31: The government is also seeking to exclude evidence and argument of defendant’s charitable deeds because character is not an essential element of the charges or potential defenses in this case. #Haiti #Boncy #Baptiste
10/31: Baptiste was the principal of The National Association for the Advancement of Haitians (NOAH). Baptiste described NOAH’s efforts to benefit the poor in Haiti by, among other things, opening a dental clinic. (side note: this concerns me.)
Personally, I feel they should go beyond the current charges and look into these so-called “charity” claims, such as the dental clinic. Remember, Baptiste himself is a dentist. If these are “fronts” (as stated above) for bribery schemes, who’s to say what’s really taking place?
10/31: The gov is also seeking to exclude evidence or argument of the port project’s alleged public benefit. “The “merits” of the goal he sought to achieve through bribery, or how the goal, if achieved, would have helped others, is irrelevant to his guilt.” #Haiti
10/31: The government is asking the court to exclude arguments in support of jury nullification, to preclude the defendant from inviting the jury to ignore the court’s instructions on the law and decide the case based on fairness, justice, or good policy. #Haiti #Boncy #Baptiste
10/31: They continue to make their case. There is an interesting case reference to the rice duties & taxes scandal with Haiti. #Boncy #Baptiste #Bribery #Haiti
“The defendant should not be permitted to argue that he should not be convicted for conspiring to violate the FCPA in Haiti because bribery in Haiti is common and widely-accepted, or based on similar arguments that are tantamount to encouraging jury nullification."
They have merged the cases of Boncy / Baptiste, much in the way they did with the NXIVM case, by merging all 6 together. I suspect we may see more indictments soon, as there are still players on the board. My eye is on Martelly, but I can't say for certain he is one of them yet.
The opening trial date is set for December 3, 2018. I will be keeping a close eye on it, as well as any indictments that may surface between now and then. #Haiti #Boncy #Baptiste
I will be adding this information as an update to the bottom of the original article on this case, I created back in April. Should we see several more indictments, I will likely create a Part 2, and link the articles. Be sure to bookmark my site.
I am now switching back to the article I was working on before this new indictment hit yesterday, right after I add a quick update to the NXIVM thread. I’m hopeful to still get the article done by the end of this week, but it may run into the weekend at this point.
