Haiti - Commemoration of the assassination of the President : Message by BINUH
Message by BINUH :
"On this day marking the first anniversary of the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34162-haiti-flash-president-jovenel-moise-assassinated-by-mercenaries-official-updated-7am-+-video.html , the United Nations in Haiti wishes to commemorate the prematurely interrupted life of a statesman, as well as to be moved by the lack of tangible progress so that justice is brought to him rendered.
The investigation and the legal proceedings carried out in Haiti seem to be at a standstill while, following the withdrawal of his four predecessors, a fifth investigating judge is now in charge of the case https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-36801-haiti-news-zapping.html .
It is urgent that the necessary means be made available to the Haitian justice system to advance the investigation and that those responsible for the assassination of President Moïse be, as soon as possible, brought to justice in accordance with legality and principles of the rule of law.
Since this crime was committed, growing insecurity, linked to the proliferation of acts of violence committed by armed gangs, has terrorized Haitian citizens and monopolized public debate in a context where the challenges facing the country are increasing day by day.
In this difficult climate, Haitians must find the terms of a process that could lead to the restoration of democratic institutions under favorable security conditions.
On this solemn day of mourning and reflection, we invite all Haitians to put aside their differences in order to lead the country towards a lasting and peaceful exit from the crisis."
