HAITI / UK – The United Kingdom is concerned by the deteriorating and volatile security situation in Haiti, and“we are troubled by the particular health and economic vulnerabilities women and children continue to face, which has been acutely magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, (FCDO) reported Monday.
The UK’s International ambassador for Human Rights, Rita French delivered the following statement during Haiti’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) at the Human Rights Council, in Geneva, Switzerland, recommends Haiti:
“Continue to fund and tighten measures around anti-trafficking laws, including by establishing and implementing clear national guidelines for identifying and screening victims for first responders, to protect victims from being physically, emotionally, and sexually exploited;
“Enact and implement laws to prohibit and prevent sexual and gender-based violence, and ensure perpetrators are brought to justice;
“Ensure there are a sufficient number of properly trained police officers in prisons and detention facilities, and bring prison conditions in line with the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.”
According to the transcript of the speech delivered:“The UK renews our call to Haiti to tackle these issues by working constructively and cooperatively with the international community.”
