Haiti - Security : New national force, the POHDH wants a broad consultation
"...we welcome the President's statement, in which he asked forgiveness on behalf of the Haitian state [...] we believe that it is important, it's a good sign, but we believe that this is not enough that the head of state pardon. It is necessary that he take steps to ensure that all those involved in these crimes committed by the armed [...] be tried, otherwise it's impunity [...]
The idea of a national consultation [Civil Commission] is an idea that we welcome, we hope that these consultations will not happen on a discriminatory basis, but that they involve everyone, very sector and not just those of the metropolitan area. There are 10 departments in the country, 570 municipalities, 70 communal sections... so we hope that all sectors including farmers, women and workers will be concerned by these consultations, so that they can give their ideas until we find a consensus on the issue of the national defense force..."
