Brignol Lindor Journalist Assassinated
On the 3rd of December, 2001, at 11 o'clock in the morning, a group of former President Aristide's supporters armed with machetes brutally hacked the life out of Brignol Lindor, the news director of a Haitian private radio station called Radio Echo 2000 in Petit-Goave. Before the murder, Lindor was in a car with a colleague of his who were eventually ambused by the armed men. The journalist's companion was able to escape while the journalist himself ended up dead while trying to seek refuge in the home of a town counsellor.
Lindor was known for his active involvement and voice in Haitian politics. Justice was never served and Lindor's funeral ended with violence as mourners shouting and carrying anti-Aristide statements were attacked by the police with clubs and tear gas. The journalist's assasination sparked outrage in the whole of Haiti, as well as in the international community.
