Haiti - FLASH : The Security Council will vote today on the resolution imposing sanctions
The UN Security Council has scheduled a vote this Friday, October 21, 2022 on the resolution imposing international sanctions on the Leader of the "G9" gang coalition Jimmy Cherizier alias "Barbecue" https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37919-haiti-un-barbecue-at-the-top-of-a-blacklist-vote-of-the-resolution-pending.html but also allowing registration on a blacklist (via a committee of the Security Council) other individuals [oligarchs, political elites, high level corrupt politicians, American citizens and others…] who threaten the peace, security or stability of Haiti

The United States and Mexico, which drafted the 10-page resolution, had delayed the vote originally scheduled for Wednesday, October 19 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37927-haiti-flash-resolution-on-sanctions-vote-postponed-at-the-un.html and made several revisions in hopes of gaining more support from the 15-member council.

The final text, obtained by the Associated Press (AP) on Thursday, no longer contains the resolution's reference to an October 7 call by Haiti's Council of Ministers for the urgent dispatch of an international military force or mention of an Oct. 8 letter from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres outlining options to help the Haitian National Police (PNH) fight gangs.

A second resolution, which was still being drafted on Thursday evening, addresses the issue of combating violence in Haiti and would authorize an immediate (non-UN) armed intervention force urgently requested by Prime Minister a.i. Ariel Henry https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-37866-icihaiti-request-for-armed-intervention-letter-from-prime-minister-to-the-un-secretary-general.html to support the Police Nationale d'Haiti (PNH) and ending gang violence and restoring order in Haiti.

Note that for a resolution to be adopted at the UN Security Council, 9 votes are required and no vetoes from the following countries: United States, Russia, Great Britain, China and France .
