Corruption was a major problem in Haiti even before the massive earthquake that struck the country nearly a month ago, killing some 200,000 people.

Now reports have emerged that counterfeiters are producing fake food coupons, coming on the heels of revelations that a thriving black market of aid supplies has sprung up.

Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from the capital Port-au-Prince on what many have called Haiti's "curse of corruption".
