Trade unionists questioned at the Port-au-Prince Airport: Paul Loulou Chéry denounces political harassments

Port-au-Prince, April 22, 2005 (AHP)- CTH Coordinator Paul Loulou Chéry informed Friday that he was questioned Tuesday at the Toussaint Louverture International Airport, as he had gone to pick up his wife Ginette Apollon, who was coming back from Venezuela where she participated in a conference.

In an interview to Radio Solidarité, Paul Loulou Chéry explained that he was questioned with his spouse who is the coordinator of working women, after she was searched by police agents as she got to the airport. They were taken to the Central Management of the Judicial Police where they were questioned for several hours on their possible connection to President Jean Bertrand Aristide, Loulou Chéry also declared.

When they were released later, the trade unionists were invited to come back the next day at the DCPJ to continue their hearing. They were to answer a new convocation this Friday.

The CTH official declared this was political harassment.
