Haiti Frees Most of the Jailed Missionaries
Posted on Feb 17, 2010
Eight of the 10 Baptist missionaries accused of kidnapping have been sent packing by a Haitian judge, who said he had not finished questioning the group’s leader and nanny. The judge said that parents of children taken by the missionaries made statements in their defense, The Associated Press reports.

Hours earlier, judge Bernard Saint-Vil told The Associated Press that eight of the 10 missionaries were free to leave without bail or other conditions after parents testified they voluntarily handed their children over to the missionaries.
“The parents of the kids made statements proving that they can be released,” he said, adding that still wants to question the group’s leader and her nanny.
