CARICOM ‘Gravely Concerned’ Over Haiti’s Deteriorating Security Situation

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) declared on Monday that the group is ‘gravely concerned’ over continuing deterioration of the security situation and social circumstances in Haiti.

“The continued breakdown in law and order, and its distressing effect on the people of Haiti, is intensifying,” a CARICOM statement observed.

And the statement indicated that the inability of the Haitian security forces to address ongoing violence made the situation worse.

According to CARICOM, the unrest is negatively impacting Haiti’s already weak economy, leading to even more mass demonstrations.

“Especially the worsening social conditions and the limited availability of food require urgent and immediate attention from the international community,” CARICOM stated.

“This persistently distressing situation is untenable,” the regional grouping observed.

It called for meaningful engagement of all stakeholders to find a way forward, put Haiti first and urgently address the situation.

“CARICOM, following discussions in the past weeks, remains available to assist and work with international partners to mobilize financial and technical resources to facilitate a process towards normalization and ultimately the holding of free, fair and credible general elections,” the statement noted.

The CARICOM statement came against the backdrop of socioeconomic and political chaos in Haiti, as turf wars among rival gangs escalate.

Media reports indicate that as many as 200 heavily armed factions are estimated to be carving up the capital, Port-au-Prince.

The result has been that many areas that had been relatively safe are now engulfed in street warfare and innocent people are being killed in the crossfire.

  2. Si vous êtes des Amis du peuple Haïtien, Comme vous le dites à chaque instant. Vous devriez écoutez la voix du peuple. N’ écoutez pas la voix des mercenaires qui depuis après le départ des Duvalier le 7 Févriet 1986 trainent ce peuple dans la misère. Si Vous êtes Amis du peuple Haïtien. Le moment est encore venu de stopper ce qui se fasse en Haïti et aider ce peuple à sortir de ces problèmes. Ce Premier Ministre inculpé n’ est plus l’ homme du Moment. Enlevé votre colli à la tête du Pays. Si non le Pays s’ embrasera. L’ enfer qu’ il deviendra sera pour tout le monde.

  3. CARICOM AMD ITS PARTNERS NEED TO DO MUCH MORE TO HELP HAITIANS. THE REGIME IN PLACE DOESN’T REALLY CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE. INSTEAD YOU CAN SEE THE WAY THAT GOVERNMENT REACTED LATELY BECAUSE OF DEMONSTRATIONS THAT SPREAD ALL OVER THE ISLAND. IT’S ABOUT TIME Y’ALL ASK THE UNITED NATION TO ASK THE HEAD OF THE STATE TO COME UP WITH A RESOLUTION TO CHANGE THAT REGIME BY REMOVING THAT PRIME MINISTER WHO’S CURRENTLY OCCUPIED THE SPOT LEFT JOVENEL. THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PEOPLE OF HAITI. GETTING RID OF THAT REGIME IS WHAT HAITIANS WANT.

  4. CARICOM AND ITS PARTNERS NEED TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT TO HELP HAITI BY REMOVING THAT DUDE WHO’S OCCUPIED THE PRIME MINISTER POSITION AFTER THE ASSASSINATION OF HAITI’S ELECTED PRESIDENT. STOP PLAYING GAMES GUYS, HAITIANS CAN’T DEAL WITH REGIME ANYMORE.
