The human rights organization qualifies 2021 as the worst year for Haiti

Port-au-Prince, Dec 28 (Prensa Latina) Antonal Mortimé, co-director of the human rights organization Defender Plus, described 2021 as a horrific day for Haiti today, ending with massacres, multiple killings and an increase in insecurity.

Mortimer pointed out that the assassination of a president had not occurred in the country in the last century, and that up to 10 people were abducted daily in the capital, and seven more died violently.

In an interview with Radio Métropole, the human rights defender estimated that 2022 would be the worst, while parliament had failed to elect a president and the term of most judges had ended.

In this context, the courts are practically paralyzed by insecurity, and about a thousand people have been abducted this year.

The Manager Awareness Manager recommends that the authorities guarantee the right to free movement of people and goods currently restricted by the control of armed gangs in strategic areas of the country.

According to the National Center for the Defense of Human Rights, by 2021 the mob had expanded its sphere of influence and dominated 60 percent of the national territory due to police inaction.

Attacks escalated in vulnerable neighborhoods such as Bel Air, and at least twenty people, including a journalist, feminist and political activist, were killed in a shooting at Delmas 32 at the end of June.

In addition, since the beginning of that month, about 20,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes in Mortisant on the southern outskirts of Port-au-Prince, and six months later mob attacks continue in the area.
