A $250 million claim to MINUSTAH on behalf of Haitian cholera victims

Forgiveness does not cure illness. At least this is what a group of Haitians believes when it comes to holding UN Peacekeeping force MINUSTAH accountable. The Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) submitted so far a total of 5,000 claims to the to U.N. for damages totaling at least $250m on behalf of Haitian cholera victims.

Hey MINUSTAH, Padon Pa geri maleng tande!

This organization believes that if it can happen in other countries, why not in Haiti

This is serious business. If the Boston-based advocacy group, Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH), ever collect this money that would help these Haitian families and their communities quite a lot.

Rejection of Haitian

It was reported that a group of residents in the Municipality of El Penon in the Dominican Republic has mounted street protest against Haitians living in the region due to the cholera outbreak in the neighboring country of Haiti.

I can safely say at this time that anyone of the four leading candidates could win in November, and that includes either Michel Martelly, Mirlande Manigat, Jude Celestin, or Charles Henri Baker.
