Haiti - Insecurity : The problem of the Champ-de-Mars is not really the insecurity
Yesterday, the Divisional Inspector Dupont Joseph of Police Station of Port-au-Prince has informed that the problem at the level of the Champ-de-Mars is not really the insecurity, and that today the biggest problem for the National Police of Haiti (PNH) are the students who make demonstrations in the area.

r. Joseph explained that the number of cases is decreasing "from June 2011 to August 2011 at the police station of Port-au-Prince we recorded 23 cases of armed robbery in the area of ​​the Champ-de-Mars, and from August 1 to August 11 we recorded at the police station three cases, when I say three cases, these are three cases that were reported at the level of the police station..."

A serie of operations has been conducted by the PNH "[...] in relation to this situation we have conducted several operations at the level of the Champ-de-Mars, following the information we obtained we had two groups that made problems at the level of the Champ-de-Mars, groups who took as nickname chèlè and bèt nwa, during the operations we have moved empty tents at the level of the Champ-de-Mars and have arrested several of these guys and dismantle these groups..."

The divisional inspector explains that today "the problem that we have at the level of the Champ-de-Mars is not really an issue of insecurity as people think, the problem is that there is a group of petty thieves doing snatching of mobile phones [...] but compared to the problems we had before when the gangsters used their their weapons to kill people, as the case of the student who was killed after being robbed [...] such cases are now rare on the Champ-de-Mars [...] t is true that last week we had a student who was shot near the Faculty of Éthonologie..."

Mr. Joseph explaines that police work is hampered by protest movements of the students "for almost a week our work is stopped at the level of the Champ-de-Mars [...] we are obliged to us focus on student activities [demonstration in the area of the Faculty of Éthonologie] instead to conduct operations [...] Today the biggest problem we have at the level of the Champ-de-Mars is the problem of students, because the area became inaccessible to us..."

Today the Presidency set its position in regard to the students victims of acts of aggression in the area of ​​the Champ-de-Mars, by taking all appropriate legal action to secure the students and the general population, in this area https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-3570-haiti-insecurity-student-victims-of-aggression-the-presidency-sets-its-position.html so why this note of the Presidency if the problem is not really an issue of insecurity according to Mr. Joseph ?
