Full text of the report. There is no language in the report characterizing President Moïse as autocratic or dictatorial. It did question his decrees last November creating an intelligence agency without oversight and his broad anti-terrorism law that overstated what constitutes a terrorist act. The intelligence agency’s officials might be exempt from prosecution. The report says there was an average eighty-four demonstrations a month in the second half of 2020. Attacks by gangs and armed men escalated to 337 since last September, up double from the previous period. Kidnappings rose from 79 in 2019 to 234 in 2020. Violence against women stayed steady at 473 cases. The surge in criminality demonstrated “the Government’s inability to stem rampant kidnappings and surging levels of criminality.” In January 2021 the prime minister ordered a more robust response to public disorder and cracked down on violent crime in gang-ridden areas. This harsher response brought with it eighty-two human-rights violations. However, the U.N. saw the chief culprits in human rights as the activity of gangs and the continued failure of state authorities to rein them in and protect the citizenry. The report welcomes the renewal of the electoral commission and the scheduling of elections on September 19, 2021. It gives generally high marks to the constitutional referendum scheduled for this spring, although it does not mention the proposal for consecutive presidential terms in the constitutional draft. It does not delve into the possibility that President Moïse might use it to run again and stay in office another five years.
