On Thursday August 31, 2023, the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) published its latest quarterly report on the human rights situation in Haiti. During the second quarter of 2023 (April – June), BINUH documented more than 1,860 victims of murders, injuries and kidnappings across the country. An increase of almost 14% in the number of victims compared to the previous quarter (January – March 2023).

Key takeaways :

  • The number of victims of killings, injuries and kidnappings increased by 14% compared to the previous quarter (January – March 2023), with a total of
    1,860 cases reported.
  • Lynchings, as part of a movement known as “Bwa Kalé”, resulted in the death of at least 238 individuals allegedly linked to gangs.
  • Gang violence continued in Artibonite.
  • Sexual violence, including rape and sexual slavery, continued to be used in gang-controlled areas as a weapon to spread fear and punish the population.
  • The recruitment of children into gangs and their involvement in kidnapping, robbery and other criminal activities continues to be of concern.
  • The Designated Expert on the human rights situation in Haiti made his first official visit to the country. He called on the international community to
    support the transition to a strengthened system of governance and to deploy a specialized international force to reinforce the Haitian National Police https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-39888-haiti-human-rights-end-of-mission-of-the-independent-expert-william-o-neill.html
