New OAS interference in Haiti rejected

By Prensa Latina, Nov. 23, 2019

The Haitian platform Nou pap Domi (We will not sleep) rejected the OAS project to fight corruption in Haiti and questions its alliance with leaders, splashed in cases of embezzlement to the Treasury.

The organization, which has been characterized by its criticism of President Jovenel Moïse's management, and his alleged involvement in embezzlement, said the government lacks legitimacy to create a commission to fight impunity and immunity, following a report of the Court of Auditors.

For Nou Pap Domi any initiative of international entities or embassies that does not take into account the voice of the people is doomed to fail.

It recalled the experiences of the United Nations peacekeeping missions in Haiti, which after 15 years were unable to change the situation in the country, particularly in the field of human rights, he said.

'The Organization of American States must treat Haiti like all other members of the organization with honor and respect for the demands of the Haitian people committed to democracy, transparency and participation', said this group.

The project of the international organization named Institutional Strengthening to combat corruption in Haiti, which must be implemented in four years by the Central Unit of Financial Intelligence, the Anti-Corruption Unit and the Superior Court of Accounts and Administrative Procedures, among other institutions, has a financing of about 18 million dollars.

This year, several organizations criticized the interference of the OAS, and by the international community, in the internal affairs of the Caribbean nation, while questioning its support for the Government.

In June last progressive movements rejected the visit of a delegation of that organization, and indicated that its purpose is to persecute and isolate progressive governments, which increasingly makes it an office, 'to execute the most shameful plans of imperialism'.

At that time, the former US ambassador to the OAS Carlos Trujillo arrived in Haiti, with the alleged purpose of facilitating dialogue between President Jovenel Moise and the sectors requesting his resignation.

Regarding that visit, Camille Chalmers, spokesman for the Rasin Kan Pep la party, told Prensa Latina that the people of Haiti do not want this interference, 'they do not want a solution made in Washington, and they do not want to accept that the OAS tell us what We have to do with our countries.
