With respect to Haiti, the Commission received information concerning the human rights situation, including impunity, prolonged pre-trial detention, ongoing conditions of insecurity in the capital city Port-au-Prince, and the continued lack of control over security by the Haitian National Police and the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) causing parts of the city to become overrun by armed gangs. The Commission therefore implores the government and the international community to take all urgent measures necessary, consistent with applicable human rights standards, to ensure the security of the population, create conditions conducive to general elections, and assist the people of Haiti in securing a hopeful future.
