    Question So tragic that he decided to commit suicide.

    HAITIJULY 12, 2017 3:42 PMFormer Haiti government official shoots himself in the head in Miami-area hotel


    BY JACQUELINE CHARLES
    jcharles@miamiherald.com

    Klaus Eberwein
    , a former Haitian government official, was found dead Tuesday in a South Dade motel room in what the Miami-Dade medical examiner’s office is ruling a suicide.

    “He shot himself in the head,” said Veronica Lamar, Miami-Dade medical examiner records supervisor. She listed his time of death at 12:19 p.m.
    The address where Eberwein’s body was discovered according to police, 14501 S. Dixie Hwy., is a Quality Inn.

    A supporter of former Haitian President Michel Martelly, Eberwein served as director general of the government’s economic development agency, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, better known as FAES. He held the position from May 2012 until February 2015 when he was replaced. He was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti, Muncheez, and has a pizza — the Klaus Special — named after him.


    “It’s really shocking,” said Muncheez’s owner Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”



    Bailly said he last spoke to Eberwein, 50, two weeks ago and he was in good spirits. They were working on opening a Muncheez restaurant in Sunrise, he said.
    But it appears that Eberwein had fallen on hard times. An Uber spokesperson confirmed that he worked as a driver for awhile in South Florida.
    During and after his government tenure, Eberwein faced allegations of fraud and corruption on how the agency he headed administered funds. Among the issues was FAES’ oversight of shoddy construction of several schools built after Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake.
    Eberwein was scheduled to appear Tuesday before the Haitian Senate’s Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the head of the commission, Sen. Evalière Beauplan confirmed. The commission is investigating the management of PetroCaribe funds, the money Haiti receives from Venezuela’s discounted oil program.

    Haiti Official, Who Exposed The Clinton Foundation, Found Dead In Miami

    July 14, 2017 Baxter Dmitry News, US 87


    Klaus Eberwein, a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week, has been found dead in Miami. He was 50.

    Eberwein was due to appear next Tuesday before the Haitian Senate Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission where he was widely expected to testify that the Clinton Foundation misappropriated Haiti earthquake donations from international donors.
    According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head“. Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide.”
    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, Fonds d’assistance économique et social, for three years.

    According to Eberwein, a paltry 0.6% of donations granted by international donors to the Clinton Foundation with the express purpose of directly assisting Haitians actually ended up in the hands of Haitian organizations. A further 9.6% ended up with the Haitian government. The remaining 89.8% – or $5.4 billion – was funneled to non-Haitian organizations.

    The Clinton Foundation, they are criminals, they are thieves, they are liars, they are a disgrace,” Eberwein said at a protest outside the Clinton Foundation headquarters in Manhattan last year.
    The former director general of Haiti, who also served as an advisor to Haitian President Michel Martelly, was also a partner in a popular pizza restaurant in Haiti, Muncheez, and even has a pizza — the Klaus Special — named after him.


    According to the Haiti Libre newspaper, Eberwein was said to be in “good spirits“, with plans for the future. His close friends and business partners are shocked by the idea he may have committed suicide.
    It’s really shocking,” said Muncheez’s owner Gilbert Bailly. “We grew up together; he was like family.”
    Bailly said he last spoke to Eberwein two weeks ago and he was in good spirits. They were excited about future business plans and were working on opening a Muncheez restaurant in Sunrise, he said.
    The Haitian government issued an official notice thanking Eberwein for his service and mourning his untimely death.

    The Directorate General of FAES presents its sympathies to the bereaved families, friends and collaborator that this mourning afflicts. The FAES flag will be flown at half-mast from Wednesday 12th to Tuesday 18th July 2017. May his soul rest in peace,” Charles Ernest Chatelier, director general.
    So tragic that he decided to commit suicide.

    Do you think she stole all his money to make him do it? It would be just like her to do that.

    The first source is a reputable newspaper. The second is an utterly insane tinfoil-hat wacko site.

    The Miami Herald reports his death and the Haitian investigation into his conduct. The second site, between howling about fluoridated water and stories about how vaccines cause autism, tries to link it to Hillary Clinton. Any bets on which one is more credible? Really RP, you're not an idiot; you should know better than this.

    I didn't read anything about "howling about fluoridated water and stories about how vaccines cause autism", perhaps we read different reports.

    Look at the other stories on the site. They range from dubious to utterly barking mad. In fact, I'd bet a modest amount that it's a Russian fake news site. Check out these headlines:

    Documents Show Hillary Invented ‘Russian Hacking’ Story With Ukraine
    Whooping Cough Outbreak In Utah Only In Vaccinated Children
    NATO ‘Stunned’ By Russian Military’s Superiority In Syria
    Donald Trump: Vaccines Cause Autism
    Australia To Force Fluoride Water On Citizens After Deeming It ‘Safe’
    Britain To Begin Banning Cash In Favor Of Digital Currency
    HSBC Procecution Unveils Massive Clinton Money Laundering Scheme

    I mean, really; do you actually believe this crap? All it lacks is UFOs and Bigfoot.

    That and other RWW social media news aggregators. What I can't figure is why someone in St Kitts would identify with this US partisan dross.

    Rummy wants to be American. Did he not post a while ago about a US visa? Perhaps he is building his credentials as a GOP wingnut.

    An Ode to Rummy:

    He is more to be pitied than censured,
    He is more to be helped than despised.
    He is only a laddie who ventured
    On life's stormy path, ill-advised;
    Do not scorn 'im with words fierce and bitter
    Do not laugh at 'is shame and downfall.
    For a moment, just stop and consider
    Vaccinations were cause of it all!

    If you hate her you pretend to believe this crapola. Nobody really believes this. This is the kind of silliness that bogs us down in nonsense here. Canadians watch their kids die waiting for a doctors appointment. So you hate Hillary....just say so but don't pretend you believe she killed this guy, vince Foster and that other guy.

    Not so fast there Keith. If there were only a few "suicides" we might be able to buy that but it's just one after another. It's way past time to begin looking into this.
