Haiti: Disarmament Delayed, Justice Denied (Amnesty International)

Amnesty International

Serious violence, blatant impunity and the absence of the rule of law continue to be widespread in Haiti. Despite the presence of a UN peacekeeping force, the Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), little tangible progress has been made to protect human rights since the interim government took office in early March 2004. In this report, Amnesty International draws attention to the continuing and unresolved human rights concerns in Haiti. The organization also seeks to highlight the serious abuses committed by armed gangs, as well as MINUSTAH’s setbacks in protecting the lives of civilians and re-establishing the rule of law.
