Guy Phillipe condamné a 9 ans de prison aux Etats-Unis

Guy Phillipe News - June 21 2017, 12:39 PM

Guy Phillipe, ex chef rebel haitien et récemment élu sénateur d'Haiti, a été condamné à passer neuf ans de prison aux États-Unis mercredi pour avoir accepté des pots de vin pour protéger les passeurs de cocaine qui ont utilisé Haïti pour expédier des drogues aux États-Unis.

Guy Philippe, âgé de 49 ans, avait plaidé coupable à la fin d'avril à une accusation de conspiration contre le blanchiment de l'argent.

Son accord de plaidoyer lui a permis d'éviter d'être jugé en mai sur une accusation de trafic plus grave qui l'aurait envoyé en prison pour le reste de sa vie.

Au lieu de cela, il a subit jusqu'à 20 ans la conviction du blanchiment d'argent, mais selon les lignes directrices fédérales sur la détermination de la peine, la peine a coûté environ la moitié de ce délai.
