    SHAZAMM!! Top Oligarchs sanctioned by Canada for gun running and human rights abuses

    It will only hurt him when the US adds his name to the sanction list - and then perhaps figures out a way to cut off his access to SWIFT transactions.

    El Seibo, Miches ,Temptations and Club Med Miches.

    So how would one GET to Miches? When I was there there was a ferry from Samana... Still running? Seems that the overland route is going to make it inaccessible for foreign guests unless the resort provides some sort of shuttle from the airport?

    UN Report: How Florida is Fueling Haiti's Arms Trafficking Crisis
