Haiti – Leader of Baptist Group Has History of Ignoring the Law

Laura Silsby is currently in jail in Haiti awaiting trial for leading a group of 10 Baptists trying to take 33 children to the Dominican Republic.  According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Ms. Silsby has had trouble following the law prior to this incident.  Ms. Silsby was sued 14 times between March and July of 2008 for failure to pay wages as chief executive of PersonalShopper.com.  These lawsuits resulted in 9 liens against PersonalShopper.com; the other 5 lawsuits are on appeal or have been dismissed.  Ms. Silsby’s trial in Haiti is scheduled for February 22.
