In the second scandal that rocked the U.S. Embassy in Haiti in the past month, an accountant who had been assigned to the United States’ mission in Port-au-Prince from 2001 to 2018, was charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Department of Defense.

Roudy Pierre-Louis was issued an arrest warrant by a judge in Charleston, SC for allegedly forging paperwork for cash advances by members of the United States Southern Command, known as SOUTHCOM. This illegal activity ran from at least 2015 through 2018. 

Pierre Louis has been living in Dumfries, VA since 2018, according to his LinkedIn Account. His online account listed him as having worked at the U.S. Embassy from 2001 to August 2018. That is when the indictment claims that the stealing of the Embassy’s funds ceased. 

In the indictment, it is stated that Pierre-Louis was the only budget analyst assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Haiti’s Security Coordination Office during the last 14 years. This position placed him in charge of all accounting having to do with the Security programs run by the Department of Defense and the State Department.
