Haiti - Security : Haiti is not among the 10 worst destinations in the world
Mr. Ady Jean Gardy, Minister of Communication, launched during a press campaign at the international level earlier this year, a appeal for solidarity vis-à-vis the Republic of Haiti following the ranking of our country, by the Company on Internet Services Yahoo France and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office among the 10 worst destinations in the world, plagued by crime, insecurity, theft and delinquency. He noted that these organizations paradoxically invite tourists to visit only the Dominican Republic in 2013 and not Haiti.

On several stations abroad and in Haiti, the Minister of Communication Ady Jean Gardy refers to a document of the Secretariat of the Geneva Declaration on Armed Violence and Development in the world that presents the 58 most violent countries and noted that Haiti in not included in the list.

mong the countries whose annual rate of homicides per 100 000 population is over 10, Haiti dot appears in the table, while are present among others, El Salvador (1st place with a rate of 60 violent deaths per 100,000 inhabitants), Jamaica (3rd), Venezuela (6th), Brazil (18th), Dominican Republic (21st), Puerto Rico (26th), Bahamas (28th) and Guyana (32nd).

According to the Minister of Communications, citing the same sources, Haiti, far from the average rate of insecurity for the Caribbean which is of 22.4, is ranked 63rd in the world, if we consider the period from 2004 to 2012 Haiti was not among the 10 most dangerous countries. Moreover, if we present the Caribbean as the third most violent region in the world, one leaves the impression that Haiti contributes contributes while on the contrary Haiti contributes to lowering the average crime in the region.

Mr. Jean Gardy also cites another report that the United Nations Office against Drugs and Crime (UNODC) ranking Haiti 18th in the West Indies with a murder rate of 6.9 per 100 000 inhabitants at the at the level of sector of traffickers. In comparison, Jamaica is leading to the 52nd rank, the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic ahead Haiti with respective rates of 28th and 24th rank, and Puerto Rico exceeded the 26th place. UNODC insists to stress that the rate of abductions would not be up in Haiti since the earthquake.

The Minister of Communication of Haiti hopes that human rights organizations in Canada, the United States, Latin America and Europe take in hand the case of abuse at the level of image of Haiti that deserves their urgent interventions. This will allow not to block the recovery of the Haitian nation trying to rebuild itself in a difficult situation coming from an earthquake whose we prepare to commemorate the memory on January 12, concluded the Minister.
