Haiti - Chile : The Chilean opposition wants to know what happened to the rapes in Haiti
As part of the extension of the presence of Chilean troops in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Vice President of the Chilean Senate, Senator Alfonso de Urresti of the Socialist Party (Main Opposition Party, 13.3%), noted the absence of representative of the Ministry of Defense and considered on the other hand inadmissible that the Government of Sebastián Piñera does not report of allegations against peacekeepers, for rape of women, girls and minors, during their mission in Haiti.

Very offensive, he asked that the absence of a report on the cases reported in Haiti be declared, stating "11 year old girls have been abused, these are international crimes and I ask that this be taken into account during the vote. This is not an official matter, it is a repeated attitude of the members of the Chilean mission in Haiti with minors and women [...] We cannot have rapists representing the State of Chile in Peace Missions !"

Adding in the same tone "[...] even if it was a single Chilean soldier who raped or ill-treated a minor in the Mission in Haiti, this requires a sanction and we cannot let him go. That is why I consider it irresponsible to vote in favor of the agreement to extend the permanence of the troops in Bosnia and Herzegovina in this context."
