Haiti: State lottery office raided, director resigns after finance report

The director of Haiti’s State Lottery has resigned after a finance report revealed potential misappropriation of funds at the agency. 

The lottery’s employee union, which earlier complained about not being paid for three months, had accused General Manager Margareth Fortuné of embezzlement. The government’s anti-corruption unit then searched the state’s lottery on Tuesday. 

Fortuné had been the lottery manager since 2016.
