Haiti: Women prisoners

Archivex Haiti publishes a list of women imprisoned in Haiti compiled by the Haiti Information Project. According to the post, “the vast majority of the women prisoners on this list have never seen a judge in violation of the Haitian Constitution. Most consider themselves political prisoners and were arrested by the Haitian police and/or the United Nations forces after they went to their neighborhoods in search of their fathers, brothers, husbands and boyfriends.”
