In view of the current developments in Haiti, the COEH is appealing to the European Union and its member states to distance themselves from Mr. Jovenel Moïse, unlawfully holding power in Haiti since February 7, 2021, the anticipated date of his resignation according to the constitution. We ask that the European Union instead listens to and supports the Haitian civil society, which for the last two years has been proposing alternatives for a peaceful transition towards a truly democratic and open society.
Eleven years after the earthquake the destruction process of Haiti, and not of its Reconstruction, is continuing. It is as if the Haitian people are still living among the rubble, like the first day of the disaster. Will the country find the necessary internal energy and solidarity to win this bet? Colette Lespinasse is sharing her opinion on the current situation.
There does not seem to be an end to the political and socio-economic crisis in Haiti. President Jovenel Moïse, accused of corruption and fraud, governs by decree and without parliament. Due to gang violence and other circumstances, fair elections are impossible. 82 organizations in Haiti and abroad are denouncing impunity, corruption and above all the complicity of the international community with the current government.
