Meeting of the UN Security Council will be focused on Haiti
United Nations, Oct 15 (Prensa Latina) The UN Security Council will dedicate today a meeting to the situation in Haiti and the performance of the office of the multilateral organization in that country, where a climate of instability and unrest persists.
Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary General, is expected to report on the work of that body on the ground.
According to a recent report by the head of the United Nations office in Haiti, Helen La Lime, riots in the country are becoming more frequent and perceptions of insecurity are becoming more acute.
Likewise, the official reported that in the last 12 months since the departure of the peacekeeping troops from Haiti, the UN office there has been trying to promote an environment conducive to overcoming the stagnation in the country, but the misgivings about the future are more and more palpable.
In compliance with a Security Council resolution, the Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) was established in 2004 in order to deal with the scenario of instability, political violence, impunity and proliferation of crime.
Just a year ago, in October 2019, the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) began its operations, with the US diplomat La Lime at the helm, after she served as head of the United Nations Mission to Support Justice in Haiti (MINUJUSTH) from 2018 to 2019.
Then the MINUJUSTH was established in 2017, attempting to develop a novel approach on the ground, aimed at strengthening the rule of law in institutions.
