Witch Doctor threatens Privert, Obama, others for Guy Philippe arrest

Samuel Maxime


NEW YORK CITY, New York, USA ( – A Haitian witch doctor, bokor, that goes by the name of Dr. Max launched incendiary threats of death towards the Privert and Obama administrations, along with law enforcement officials, who participated in the arrest and extradition of indicted drug-trafficker, Guy Philippe. The man, who is possibly a resident in the United States, used the inability of the U.S. to pursue Edward Snowden in Russia or Julian Assange in the United Kingdom as context to explain some sinister affront in the arrest of Guy Philippe.

Dr. Max and his whereabouts are unknown to the Haiti Sentinel and in what circumstances, whether on a radio station or other medium, that he made the inflammatory declarations, is also unknown. The voice of an interviewer was not heard making source identification difficult. The audio file was published to YouTube with a video loop of the moment Guy Philippe, a senator-elect, was placed on a plane by U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) officials to be extradited to Florida.

“You will see these bodies, anyone involved in the arrest of Guy Philippe, fall like raindrops”, the bokor said, clearly unsettled by the events which transpired on January 5, 2017. Dr. Max claimed to not have any connection with the former coup leader, Mr. Philippe, but seemed impassioned in his diatribe, mostly in Haitian Creole, with a few words in English.

The bokor asked for personal effects of Mr. Philippe and spoke of potions and spirits, those of the Haitian revolution, he said, which would be employed to cause harm to government, judicial and law enforcement officials.
