UN accommodates human rights abuses by police in Haiti / 27




May 4, 2005 demonstration stops to protest in front of UN headquarters on Rue Pan-Americain. An anonymous source close to the UN mission commented, "The attempts to cover-up these killings and the feeble justifications of the Haitian police are unbelievably stupid and transparent. The UN mission is well aware of the unacceptable pace of recruitment of former military into the Haitian police, as well as the parallel emergence of death squads within the institution."
