Haiti - Les Cayes : 12 YEAR OLD HAITIAN BOY SAID HE SLEPT IN PRIEST'S BED.
On several occasions in the early morning hours, a volunteer observed a young boy leaving the priest's private residence, located on the grounds of a 600 child orphanage in Les Cayes, Haiti.
When the volunteer asked the boy where he stays at night, the boy said that he sleeps with Fr. Marc in Fr. Marc's bed.
"Father Marc" is Rev. Marc Boisvert, O.M.I., Founder and Executive Director of Pwoje Espwa Sud in Les Cayes, Haiti.
The volunteer immediately telephoned and emailed Dr. Cynthia DeSoi, the orphanage's volunteer medical director and board member, with the information he received from the boy.
Two days later, Father Boisvert held a "mock trial" with the frightened boy seated on a high stool in the middle of Fr. Boisvert's living room. Surrounding the boy was Boisvert, three of his employees and the volunteer whose presence was requested by Boisvert.
Under questioning, the orphanage official pressured the boy to say that he had instead only "dreamed" about sleeping in Boisvert's bed.
Soon thereafter, the boy disappeared back into the streets of Les Cayes.
Dr. DeSoi, a U.S. citizen who practices medicine in Lewiston, Maine, travels frequently to Pwoje Espwa.
Boisvert is a Roman Catholic priest and a member of the U.S. Oblate religious order.
