The organization wrote a letter to the leadership of the Haitian National Police (PNH) in which they expressed the citizens’ concern about the vehicles with tinted windows used by gangs to perpetrate kidnappings with impunity.
Nearly 300 people have been victims of this phenomenon this year, while 400 others have died as a result of violence, according to a report by the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace.
“As a global security-oriented strategy and due to high-security reasons, window tint authorizations should be put on hold. The PNH vehicles, all vehicles with license plates at the service of the State, Diplomatic Staff and any other private vehicle must respect these restrictive provisions,” the December 4 organization recommended.
This provision, they pointed out, in addition to facilitating public confidence, will help the Police to significantly restrict, or even eliminate, kidnapping attempts or the gang members can circulate in vehicles with tinted windows, they assured.
