Kidnappers caught in Haiti
No matter how noble the purpose, you cannot operate above the law. Religious leaders are not permitted to impose their will and beliefs on children or people as was the case in days of yore. As the Haiti government said, the behavior of missionaries was offensive.
“Haiti charges U.S. church members with kidnap
Case of 10 missionaries sent to a judge to determine group’s fate
PORT-AU-PRINCE - Ten U.S. missionaries in Haiti were charged Thursday with child kidnapping and criminal association for allegedly trying to take children illegally out of the earthquake-hit country.
After announcing the charges, Haitian Deputy Prosecutor Jean Ferge Joseph told the 10 their case was being sent to an investigative judge.
"That judge can free you but he can also continue to hold you for further proceedings," the deputy prosecutor told the five men and five women in a hearing.”
