U.S. deports former coup leader, convicted drug trafficker Guy Philippe back to Haiti. Philippe’s attorney, Jean Joseph Louicher, confirmed to the Associated Press that Philippe arrived in Port-au-Prince on Thursday morning. “We’ve been fighting for four years to reduce the sentence of Guy Philippe to bring him home,” he said, referring to a money laundering charge he pleaded guilty to in the U.S.
Guy Philippe, who was dressed in a gray jumpsuit, was seen walking into Haiti’s National Police station after getting off a bus.
He could not be immediately reached for comment.
