The doctor, who is the director of this hospital, was kidnapped on Tuesday quite near it, and residents of this area built barricades and urged the government to assume its responsibilities.

The university hospital recalled that this doctor has worked in this institution for 45 years and provides services with a strong sense of priesthood and denounced this atrocious practice that deprives citizens of their professionals.

In the press release, it called on kidnappers to unconditionally release the victims and end this activity that destroys Haitian families.

Pierre-Pierre is another victim of the growing list of kidnappings, including several doctors, something that has prompted a solidarity movement in this guild.

On Thursday, several private and public hospitals closed their doors or limited their services to emergency to protest against the retention of pediatrician Bennety Augustin since May 5, despite the fact that a ransom was paid.

Until Saturday, specialized societies, the community of healthcare assistants, public and private hospitals and clinics will stage a strike to urge authorities to ensure the right to enjoy freedom and save human lives in peace and quietly, they wrote in a statement.
