By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) issued a statement condemning the recent murders of police officers in Haiti.
CARICOM says that it is “deeply concerned that the contrasting incidents involving the Haitian national Police indicate the severity of the challenges that the police face as well as further breakdown in security in Haiti.”
“CARICOM strongly condemns the killing of police officers and expresses its condolences to the families of the officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. The anger and dismay of the police at the gruesome killings of their colleagues, 78 killed since July 2021and 14 to date this January, are shared by all,” CARICOM added.
However, the Caribbean Community called on the security forces to protect every citizen and maintain public order because abandoning their role further destabilizes the country.
“The protest actions by members of the police service against the Prime Minister cannot be condoned,” the statement said.
CARICOM further urged the members of the Haitian National Police to safeguard peace and order and refrain from actions which could only serve to foster even greater damage to the country and its people.
