Haiti - Justice : Human Rights Watch calls for an independent investigation into the protesters killed
On Friday, March 22, the international human rights NGO Human Rights Watch said the Haitian authorities should ensure that a prompt, thorough and independent investigation is conducted into those killed during the February 2019 demonstrations.

34 people were killed and 102 injured – including 23 police officers – in the course of these demonstrations as police sought to patrol and control the crowds and remove barricades protesters had erected, according to the United Nations Mission for Justice Support in Haiti.

"Haitian authorities should investigate the use of force by police during these protests, and ensure that any police officer who used excessive force is held accountable," said José Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at Human Rights Watch.
