Members of the United Nations Security Council expressed their concerns about Haiti’s ongoing crisis to President Jovenel Moïse during the unilateral body’s virtual meeting on Monday.
The list of issues they touched on ranged from kidnappings, violent protests, delayed legislative elections and one-man rule— among others.
“How is it possible today that Jimmy Cherizier is still free?” France’s representative asked Moïse. “The men responsible for the massacres in La Saline, in Bel Air have to face justice.”
Moïse blamed the opposition or “the powerful oligarchs” for Haiti’s condition and said that 64 of the 100 gangs were dismantled.
