December 29, 2010
The Special Representative for the Organisation of American States (OAS) Ricardo Seitenfus was fired 24 hours after he gave a candid interview to the Swiss newspaper Le Temps on Monday December 20, 2010. "Imposed" UN troops, NGOs that exist only because of Haiti's misfortune and the role international capitalism plays in Haiti's ills were among the topics he spoke about.
Was he relieved of his duties because of his comments? Investigative journalist, author and Haiti relief worker Georgianne Nienaber weighs in via the The Huffington Post.
