Haiti on blacklist of shame for not fighting human trafficking and slavery

The United States have updated their "black list" and Haiti is one of the countries placed on the blacklist of shame for not meet the minimum standards for fighting against human trafficking or slavery. Having Haiti in the blacklist of shame will likely make things worst for a country that is already dealing with all types of crises. This can include imposition of economic sanctions such as freezing of non humanitarian aid and non-commercial and the refusal to grant loans from multilateral institutions.


Other countries on the list include: Suriname, Myanmar, Djibouti, Papua New Guinea, Sudan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Algeria, Belarus, Belize, Burundi, Central African Republic, the Marshall islands and the Comoros, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Iran, North Korea , Mauritania, Russia, South Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.

The US President has up to 90 days to decide whether or not the United States will impose sanctions on those countries in the blacklist of shame.
