Haiti - Justice : 3rd mission of Michel Forst on the Human Rights
The UN Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Haiti, Michel Forst, will visit Haiti from 20 to 27 February to evaluate the situation since his last mission in September 2010, and follow up on recommendations made in his last report to the Human Rights Council.

"I will focus on issues of human rights in the context of the humanitarian crisis, the implementation of a human rights-based approach to reconstruction, preventing impunity for serious human rights violations and the pursuit of reforms in the area of Rule of Law" said Mr. Forst launching his third mission to Haiti after the 12 January 2010 earthquake.

During his eight-day mission, the independent expert appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to assess, report and make recommendations on the human rights situation in Haiti will visit camps of internally displaced persons, prisons as well as carry out visits to the cities of Jacmel and Cap-Haïtien.

Forst will meet with Haitian authorities, including high level representatives of the government and the judiciary, representatives of MINUSTAH and UN System agencies in Haiti, as well as members of the diplomatic corps and civil society.
