Haiti - Diplomacy : Haiti apologizes to Canada and France
"The Foreign Ministry informs the press Ssoken, written, televised and online that Sunday, October 27, 2019 protesters erected a fire barricade in front of the walls of the Embassy of Canada located in Delmas and took the opportunity to launch a Molotov cocktail on the court of said Embassy wounding at the leg an officer of the National Police of Haiti who was ensuring the security of this diplomatic mission.
Moreover, on Friday, October 25, 2019, demonstrators had already launched a Molotov cocktail and throwing stones at the French Embassy, without causing any casualties.
The Chancery strongly condemns these barbaric acts which are contrary to the spirit of hospitality of the Haitian people and the principle of inviolability enjoyed by the Diplomatic Missions, in accordance with Article 22 of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
The Chancellor, His Excellency Mr. Bocchit Edmond has already spoken with the ambassadors of Canada and France to express the regrets and apologize of the Haitian government for these regrettable events.
Informed of this situation, the Minister of Justice and Public Security has already issued instructions to the Central Directorate of Judicial Police (DCPJ) for an investigation to be opened so that those responsible for these acts are arrested and tried according to the prescribed of the law."
