Haiti - FLASH : President Moïse announces the date of the official return of the Army
Let's recall that Prime Minister Lafontant speaking at the end of October on the remobilization of the army, promised that after the launch of the recruitment process initiated by Hervé Denis, the Minister of Defense, last July, http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21566-haiti-notice-military-recruitment-extended-registrations.html which saw the registration of 2,350 young people including 350 girls, all remaining steps for the remobilization of the army will be crossed in transparency without providing more information on the progress of the process...
Sêcifing that this new army of Haiti will have another mission and another direction than that of the past "it will be an army at the service of the population and not a tormenting army [...]" http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-22509-haiti-security-the-haitian-army-has-never-been-dissolved-but-demobilized-dixit-pm.html
Also remember that at the end of September in his speech at the Tribune of the 72nd Ordinary Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-22187-haiti-flash-jovenel-moise-evokes-the-army-of-haiti-at-the-tribune-of-the-un.html President Jovenel Moïse, speaking for the first time front this Assembly declared about the army "If the international community has spent thirteen years supporting the national and public security of Haiti; if at each natural disaster the friendly countries come to the rescue of the Haitian people, this indicates that the country needs a defense force.
Therefore, Haiti, after the departure of the Minustah by stages, will set up a military force to accomplish three missions:
- An engineering unit capable of contributing to major infrastructure works, and
to intervene after natural disasters;
- An aviation unit capable of training young people in aeronautical mechanics and aircraft and helicopter piloting following natural disasters;
-A medical unit capable of treating the victims of natural disasters and caring for the residents of the most remote places"
