IJDH/BAI fight for the human rights of Haitians wherever violations occur. We work to push the justice system to investigate disappearances and assassinations, most notably in the cases of Pierre Lovinsky-Antoine and Jean Dominique. We prosecute human rights violators in Haitian and international courts and have been successful in the cases of FRAPH leader Emmanuel Constant, Colonel Carl Dorelien and other military and paramilitary who reigned during the 1991-1994 coup period. We also seek hold the UN and the Haitian police accountable for excessive and arbitrary use of force against innocent civilians.
