Haitian Businessman Arrested in DR for Drug Trafficking

A business partner and friend to the Martelly family was arrested in the Dominican Republic Wednesday night for conspiracy and trafficking of cocaine.

Rodolphe Jaar, a member of the Haitian upperclass, was living in a luxury suite at a hotel in the Dominican capital’s Malecon complex when D.R. National Drug Control Agency (DNCD) raided the establishment.

Authorities in DR say Jaar possessed identification, passports and credit cards for different countries including the Haiti, the United States and the Dominican Republic. Jaar also had $62,927 in cash on him. via:  Defend Haiti.
