Haiti - Insecurity : The OPC demands the protection of journalists
The Citizen Protection Office (OPC), an independent National Institution for the promotion and protection of Human Rights, condemns the assassination of journalists Wilguens Louissaint and Amady John Wesley in Laboule 12 on Thursday, January 6 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35656-haiti-flash-2-haitian-journalists-fall-under-gangs-bullets.html

The OPC recalls that the protection of journalists is the responsibility of the State which has the obligation "to guarantee the right to life, to health, to respect for the human person, to all citizens without distinction, in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."

"Failure to protect the journalist in the exercise of his mission to inform public opinion constitutes an obstacle to press freedom, democracy and respect for human rights in general" underlines the Office, which calls on the constituted authorities to launch an investigation into the murder of the two journalists in order to identify the alleged perpetrators of these crimes and to prosecute them in accordance with the law
