Witness: Then, Richard (bleep) said, you know something, I'm gonna call a friend and they're gonna come and see you because from the information I've got they want to kill you.
But I saw Youri Latortue going back and forth on the staircase [at the police station] in Petionville so that's when I said...it clicked. I said oh my God. I'm being set up.
UN Official: So while you were in Petionville you saw Youri walking around?
Witness: not walking around going up and down the staircase from the Commissioner's down to where I was. But he didn't come towards me. When I saw him that's when things clicked. I said okay that's it...I know why I am here.
UN Official: Now let me ask you about that. Why would Youri have something against you. Why would you wanna be....
Witness: Because the 28th of August 1994, I witnessed Youri Latortue murder the priest by the name of Jean-Marie Vincent.
UN Official: Where did you see this?
Witness: In Christ Roi by Turgeau.
UN Official: And was this on the side of the road? A restaurant?
Witness:: No. he was getting into the place where he lives. The priest was getting into the gate.
UN Official: What? He got out of vehicle to open to the gate?
Witness:: No, they were opening the gate for him
UN Official:: Uh huh.
Witness: That's when I saw a pickup....a double white pickup with a bunch of men in black. And uh...I saw Youri. The reason why I remember Youri....I don't remember the other ones. But the reason why I remember Youri because he used to come to (beep) house. And I saw him getting out of the car and shooting at the car. But at that time I didn't know he was a priest. The man they were shooting at. I didn't know he was a priest. And I didn't know the person who was in that car.
UN Official: Right
Witness: It's when I went back to my uncle's house and I was explaining what I witnessed. Then I found out when he said "you know (unintelligible) who they shot?" I said who they shot? He said Jean-Marie Vincent. I said who is Jean-Marie Vincent. He said it's a priest.
