Just wanted to post this before I forget.
BOISE, Idaho — Church leaders affiliated with the 10 Americans detained in Haiti for trying to take a busload of children out of the country are calling for their immediate release.
Central Valley Baptist Church officials claim the detainees have been interrogated by the Haitian government without an attorney or witness present – a move church officials say violates the Haitian Constitution.
Assistant Pastor Drew Ham also points to a clause in Haiti’s constitution preventing anyone from being arrested more than 48 hours without appearing before a judge. They have not yet been charged by the Haitian government.
The 10 Americans, including nine from Idaho, were arrested Friday after trying to take 33 undocumented children across the border. The Americans insist they were only trying to rescue child victims of the Jan. 12 earthquake.
Does the irony of these idiots demanding their ‘right’s under Haiti’s constitution strike anyone else as hilarious especially the go-round we’ve had in THIS country regarding legal rights of any of those at Guantanamo.
I mean – seriously!
