How did you first learn about this story?
August 2007. But as member of Cap-Haitian city, I heard about that and considered it as rumors. By August 2007, someone from the state told about that. The person, who uses to give gifts to the children when coming in Haiti, told he found street kids who explain the same story and hope to testimony. The kids told him that they cannot accept the situation it’s very hard for them. When Doug drink alcohol, he spent much of time doing sex with them even though it's painful.
Do you know anyone from Fairfield University who has been involved in the case directly? The University has been denying any ties to the organization and to Doug Perlitz.
I don’t know everything about Fairfield University. I just read the name at CNN report on the situation. I just know that a group of American people prefer support Douglas against the kids. They prefer cancel the funds to pressure kid a push to say that they were lying. A psychologist closed to Doug came recently in Haiti to pressure former staff member bay say that she can read in the eyes. The kids told me about Father Paul, I don’t know if he’s involved in the case. Fairfield seems is afraid to face the issue.
Has the University been involved in any way since the scandal first broke?
I don’t know.
Have you spoken to any of the victims?
What is the state of Doug's school now? Is it still operational?
Closed. They don’t money to run it. Doug friend prefer support him anyway even investigation confirm allegations. Now street kids are suffer. Douglas sponsor punish them for saying what’s wrong. I don’t understand that. I usually heard American people are moral and respect children. I start asking if Doug initiative was single or organized.
The federal indictment says he controlled the finances and that's how he was able to keep everything under wraps. Any comments on the validity of that claim?
I think it’s right. Douglas keep his administration out of control. His lawyer in Haiti, use to tell me to make everything well. He always replied, He doesn’t need Haitian administration. He has my money from sponsor, the sponsors believe in me, that’s all. A little investigation on his administration will show that he was managing the project as his house.
