UN accommodates human rights abuses by police in Haiti




The Haitian police now assume the U.N. will keep supporting them by remaining silent because no one in the Haitian police is being held accountable. For many observers on the ground this gives the appearance that the U.N. mandate to "restore democracy" to Haiti is providing the police with cover to commit murder with impunity. In the absence of any public investigation it can certainly be argued this has been the reality thus far.s
