Sébastien Ajavon, one of the nation’s most successful businessmen and a leading opposition politician, has been summonsed to court accused of "high-risk international drug trafficking." Two years ago he faced the same charges but a conviction was not given due to insufficient evidence. Last year he was fined more than $300 million for allegedly evading taxes since 2014. That case is still in court. Ajavon says all the charges are politically motivated. Ask God to illuminate the truth. Pray that wealthy people like Mr. Ajavon would not think they can avoid paying taxes or face justice for alleged crimes (The Bible, Zecharaiah 7:9).
