Haitian Coup Leader Facing US Drug Charges, No Bail Set

MIAMI-- The Latest on Haiti-Ex-Rebel Leader (all times local):

2:40 p.m. -A former Haitian coup leader who was recently elected to the Haitian Senate has been ordered jailed without bail on U.S. drug charges.

A Miami federal judge said at 48-year-old Guy Philippe's initial court appearance Friday that the issue of bail could be revisited later. Another hearing was set next week to ensure Philippe has an attorney to represent him.

Philippe was flown to the U.S. following his arrest Thursday in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince while he appeared on a live radio show.

Philippe faces several drug trafficking charges including conspiracy to import cocaine into the U.S. He has long maintained his innocence and blamed the accusations on political enemies.

Philippe was recently elected to the Haitian Senate. A former police chief, Philippe was a key part of a 2004 uprising that ousted then-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

Supported by Followers, Haitian Leader Philippe Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges

MIAMI-- With dozens of supporters packing a Miami federal courthouse, a former Haitian coup leader and recent senator-elect pleaded not guilty in a U.S. drug trafficking case.

Guy Philippe entered the plea Friday morning to drug smuggling and money laundering conspiracy charges that carry a maximum life prison sentence.

Philippe was flown to the U.S. to face the longstanding charges after his arrest last week in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince during a live radio show.

Supporters who came to the courthouse Friday said the 48-year-old Philippe is innocent and blamed his arrest on political foes. Philippe was recently elected to the Haitian Senate, which supporters say should give him immunity from prosecution.

A former police chief, Philippe was a key part of a 2004 uprising that ousted then-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
