Port-au-Prince, Haiti — A decision on whether bail would be granted for 10 American missionaries detained in Haiti may have been delayed Monday because of quake-related electrical problems at the courthouse.
Prosecutors said they couldn’t print out their recommendation for the judge to review as scheduled for Monday.
Haiti’s Deputy Attorney General Jean Serge Josephon on Saturday said he had decided whether to recommend bail be granted for the Americans, who are charged with trying to take dozens of children out of the country without proper documentation. He said he would return the case file and his recommendation on Monday to Examining Judge Bernard Saint-vil, whose decision about whether to grant bail will be final.
