Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the priest-turned-president who has dominated Haitian politics since he was First elected president in 1990, fled to the Central African Republic after he was overthrown in February 2004. He later went to Jamaica, ostensibly to visit his daughters, but probably in the hope of returning to power in Haiti as well. Regional unrest following his return convinced him to move to South Africa. South Africa has so far declined Prime Minister Latortue’s demands to extradite Aristide to Haiti where he could be indicted for fraud and incitation to political murder.
