CAP-HAITIEN, Haiti (defend.ht) - A freemason temple was vandalized in the northern city of Cap-Haitien on Saturday night, less than a month after the desecration of the cathedral in the same city.
"They destroyed everything, everything that was inside the building: bible, throne chairs, a complete desecration of the temple," an official of the temple, Karol Muscadin, told the AFP.
This act was not claimed, but leaflets were found on the site accusing Freemasonry of being a "group of criminals who use the bible to hide their true face."
'Just as the Catholic Church, the Freemasons are working for Lucifer, abandon these religions to follow Jesus in another church,'
Le Nouvelliste read the document, written in Creole.
In August, unidentified men ransacked the cathedral Cap-Haitien, Haiti's second city, destroying sacred objects and statues of saints.
"Freemasonry is a universal institution, I do not see why you attack us," said Muscadin, reached by phone.
Despite the new police chief offering a reward of 50,000 HTG provided to any persons who can provide information on the individuals who vandalized the Cathedral of Cap-Haitien, no one has been arrested and the investigation continues.
