A federal human rights lawsuit against a former Haitian Army colonel will go to trial next week. Carl Dorelien served a year in prison in Haiti after a US immigration judge found him to be a human rights violator and had him deported in 2003. His trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday in US District Court in Miami before Judge James King. The Center for Justice & Accountability filed the lawsuit against Dorelien before he was deported in 2003, alleging he is liable for the 1994 murder of Michel Pierre and the torture in 1993 of Lexiuste Cajuste, a former labor leader. Federal statues allows such cases to continue if the defendant is in the US when they are filed. Dorelien remains in Haiti and will not attend the trial. His Miami attorney, Kurt Klaus, denied the allegations Saturday.
