Violence and human rights violations in Haiti

 

The National Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace in Haiti recently released a report on the presence of violence and human rights violations in Haiti during 2012. The first part of the report reproduces the observations of 2012 and includes a detailed analysis of the frequency of violence in the country. This section contains many recommendations that deal with violence, human rights violations and the responsibilities of the State to address these injustices. The second part of the report provides a complete list of cases registered by the parish and diocesan commissions during the year of 2012. The Commission hopes that these observations and reflections will help raise awareness, and inspire those committed and determined to live in peace and mutual harmony.
