En 1994, K-plim avait traduit en justice Prosper Avril et obtenu 20 millions de dollars pour dommage d' un tribunal Américain

Prosper Avril - Ex dictateur Militaire
Quand nous voyons K-plim et ses anciens tortionnaires qui se décotent sur les banc publics (Georges Brassens) et l'indignation qu'a soulevé ce comportement de l'un des prisonniers de la Toussaint, Tout Haiti a voulu en connaitre d'avantage. (voir article de Tout Haiti: Vidéo prisonniers de la Toussaint: Prosper Avril a torturé et parader à la TNH les prisonniers politiques Evans Paul K-Plim, Marino Etienne et Jean Auguste Mesieux)
Après une petite enquête Tout Haiti a retrouvé des documents d'archives qui permettront d'avoir une meilleure idée de la saga opposant l'ancien dictateur putschiste Prosper Avril et les prisonniers de la Toussaint Evans Paul K-plim, Marino Etienne et Jean Auguste Messieux. A ces trois prisonniers politiques il faut ajouter Gerald Emile Brun, Serge Gilles et Fernand Gérard Laforest.

K-plim a déjà obtenu Justice de la part du système judicaire américain et les autres victimes du régime ?

Ces victimes de la dictature Militaro-Duvaliériste avaient comme avocats Mes Ira Jay Kurzban et Michael S. Popkin d'après des documents officiels obtenus par Tout Haiti. Les victimes s ont porté plainte contre Prosper Avril dans un tribunal de Miami ou un juge a condamné l'ex dictateur pour payer la rondelette somme de 41 millions de dollars aux plaignants. Ne pouvant pas payer cette somme astronomique Prosper Avril avait fui les États-Unis pour se rendre à Saint Domingue sous la protection dit-on des services secrets américains pour lesquels il travaillait puis il est retourné en Haiti ou il vit depuis lors.
Tout Haiti vous invite à voir le document plus bas

What can you do if you are a victim of Haiti's police and military abuse? 

In 1989, yet another military coup brought Colonel Prosper Avril to power. Under American pressure Avril fired 140 officers suspected of drug trafficking. Avril has been sued by six Haitians, including Port-au-Prince mayor Evans Paul, who claimed that they were imprisoned and tortured by the Haitian military under Avril's orders in November 1989. According to testimony before the Kerry subcommittee, Avril was a major player in Haiti's moving cartel cocaine into the United States. In 1994, a Florida Judge awarded Evans Paul $20 million in damages and legal fees against Prosper Avril.

Colonel Prosper Avril was unable to settle the sum, then ran away to hide in Haiti.
