Ten members of a U.S. missionary group who said they were trying to rescue 33 child victims of Haiti´s devastating earthquake were charged with child kidnapping and criminal association on Thursday.
"I feel good," the group´s leader Laura Silsby told reporters. "I trust in God." Laura Silsby has said they were trying to take orphans and abandoned children to an orphanage in the neighboring Dominican Republic without proper documentation.
The 10 will be tried in Haiti. "It is Haitian law that has been violated it is up to the Haitian authorities to hear and judge the case. I don´t see any reason why they should be tried in USA," said Justice Minister Paul Denis.
