A former commander with the Haitian National Police Brigade was charged Friday in a federal grand jury indictment with eight counts of cocaine conspiracy and money laundering.

Rudy Therassan, 39, is the first former Haitian government official indicted in a grand jury's inquiry into drugs, money and corruption under President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. He is being held without bail in Miami.

Meanwhile Pierre Legrand over at The Pink Flamingos Bar & Grill blog in Haiti has some thoughts on the recent spate of cases of the butterflies exhibited by some conservative publications.
