Haiti: Cité Soleil raids and judiciary

Jojo at Collectif Haiti de Provence reacts to a story about a recent UN raid in Cité Soleil, alleged siege of the gang leaders who have terrorized the capital with kidnappings: “We acknowledge with emotion and desolation the total blackout on the judiciary activity that should end the process begun by the police. The restructuring of the judicial system is too slow; certain judges have been pinpointed as corrupt judges who were making money by issuing decisions that free real bandits in exchange for huge sums … The judiciary being s o weak, public opinion will start judging the efficiency of peace keping by the number of bandits killed, dead in combat or … executed. A situation which may have ambiguous effects on public opinion. “
